TITLE: Glass Chapel
The Anthony Chapel is one of several glass chapels built across Arkansas, United States. A lacework of blonde wood lightly frames and furnishes towering solid panes of glass. Shaded by trees and solid, save central skylight, the roof the chapel is not the hot greenhouse one might expect.
Nearby the Carillion bell tower chimes the hour and perhaps the weddings frequently held in this idyllic place.
With broad daylight shining through sparse tree spring leaves, it is a challenge to capture the tones, textures, and shapes of light and lace created here in black and white. A lot of detailed photo editing, with variances per capture, went into each angle to reach similar ambience in light and lace of the Anthony Chapel architecture.
