That's My World - Stoplight Steeples - NC




When I'm stuck at a stoplight it's common for me to take a quick photograph to break the boredom.



More often than not there is a steeple I can focus on so I have a lot of shots of steeples taken from my car while stuck at a stoplight.



I don't know much about most of the steeples. The first one was taken in downtown Raleigh, NC, the second in North Raleigh and the third in Durham, NC. The last two were taken in downtown Raleigh.



The last steeple is Christ Episcopal Church and has a weather vane on the tall steeple and the cross is on the tip of the roof.



To visit other parts of the world, please go to That's My World Tuesday.

Those steeples are great. Must be tough if you get caught in a red cycle. Lots of lights there!

You sure do see a lot of churches, or at least the steeples. I like the last one best.

You have a lot of churches. Do you take the photo through the windshield or an open window?

That's putting your time to good use! I like the juxtaposition of the steeple and the stoplight in the first photo.

I love that double set of red lights - very cool shot Carver.
Steeples are one of my favorite things to photograph as well - you certainly have so beautiful ones.
