Marienkirche At Night
The unique steeple of the old Marienkirche stands lit up in the night sky in downtown Fredericksburg, Texas. St. Mary's Catholic Church began with a handful of German immigrants in 1846, who built this church in 1861 in this settlement in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, where it currently stands next door to the newer and larger St.Mary's Catholic Church (built 1908). It is a popular destination in this popular town, and is one of the famous painted churches of Texas (Source: http://church.stmarysfbg.com/about-stmarys/history.cfm)
Gary Holmes, photographer: I am an opportunist photographer of nature, landscapes, abstract, and other found objects of interest. I prefer to capture the spontaneity of things and events as they are occurring, and rarely photograph staged subjects other than portraits. Although I have been a photographer for decades, I have only started posting them for others to see since about September 2012. Please see my largest collection of photographs posted at http://500px.com/holmesidepi. I had sufficient encouragement from posts on other sites to try putting some up for sale on Fine Art America (FAA), which offers a wide range of printing and mounting options not currently available on 500px. As a result, I have successfully sold some of my works. Unfortunately, photography is not my primary field, and I have limited time to expand my online presence, but I will continue to steadily post more of my best works on 500px and/or FAA every week. Please revisit my sites periodically.
If you love, like, respect, admire, or even feel somewhat favorably inclined toward any of my works, please vote, vote+fave, and/or offer gently constructive criticism or suggestions. Votes and faves are important to me and help me understand what other people like or don't like. Anonymous down votes mean nothing to me, unless you dignify them with an explanation.
