  1. But ... he has a gun ... symbolism of walking into the light ... with a gun??

    This is a most commodious aisle ... I am always hesitant to shoot in a church ... sorry - couldn't resist ...

    a gun ...

  2. Armed and religious! The arm of the Lord? Maybe he's looking for a really bad preacher?

    God and guns is an American obsession!

    What a great photo!

  3. Is it a gun? I am impressed by his shoes - person who wears those may be in need to get some soul food support. Another great picture! Can be a part of a thriller!

  5. She? This is a good one Sean - this is how our prejudices work against us sometimes! Do the churches hire security there!

  6. The others are scuttling out ... did SHE bark orders ... which side is she on ... a goodie or a baddie ... she looks of the establishment.

    How come is someone with a gun allowed in a church? Maybe this was not a working church ...

  7. Speaking of moody......
    wonderfully atmospheric.
    And even gun-slingers need religion
    (some may say they ESPECIALLY need religion).

  11. This is a truly disturbing scene. On many levels. I'm surprised you were allowed to shoot it -- or at least keep the shot. Really packs a lot of punch though, so I'm glad you got it. I'd love to know the story behind it.
