A couple of years ago, a member of our local camera club posted a few photos of this awesome old building he’d found while out driving back roads. We all begged him to give us directions – and we were all shattered when he said “I don’t know! I was just going down random roads . . .”
Which turned this mystery into a quest for several of us. And in rural Kansas, quests can be really cool and really dangerous at the same time. You just never know where you’ll end up, or when you’ll end up with a shotgun in your face.
Still . . . I found the building.
Today it’s an empty shell of a former church – but still beautiful. It reminds me of an old English church in the countryside – the Virginia creeper, the stonework.
The quest to find a nameless old building has turned into a love affair that still has several of us traveling to the site a few times a year to photograph it and just keep an eye on things. 🙂
