Sunday Photo - Old Church


This is the old church at Fort Stanton in Lincoln County, New Mexico. I like the stonework on this old building but I really, really like the door!


Check out those hinges!! :)

So cool . I knew if had to be in the southwest , absolutely beautiful and so pretty ! What history it must have, if walls could talk !

Beautiful! I really like those hinges too, but I find the number on the door a bit out of place. It looks like one of those word verification numbers. :-)

Oh yes, the stones are beautiful but you're right the door is the icing on the cake! Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #54!

Wow. That is just awesome! Those have to be hand forged, right? Amazing.

LOVE that door!! The hinges--wow! I love craftsmanship--when people do things because they can and push their limits.

Michaele said...

Looks like it will be there to please visitors for many years to come. If that door were smaller, I would swear it was something from The Hobbit.

Really gorgeous pics, Candy! No wonder you like those hinges... they look a little bit like somebody's moustache a couple of posts ago!

Hey, I have to tell you... it has turned very wintery here in Ohio because of Sandy but some hardy radishes are still trying to survive. I'm not a fan of radishes, I only grow them for the chickens. But I remembered your post about sauteing them, and I tried it... and really liked them that way! Thank you for sharing that idea a while back!
