A Sign of the Times
Once there was a time when you could almost guarantee that every church door in the country was open twenty-four hours a day, every day. Not these days. Vandals, thieves and trouble-makers have put paid to that and, if this sign I photographed last weekend is anything to go by, it now seems churches have to 'advertise' the fact that their doors are open. I'm not a religious person but I do think this is a sorry state of affairs. I love photographing church architecture and I'm often frustrated when I can't get inside a beautiful church. I did however, love this little sign in its own right - and let's not forget the handsome, blocky little shadow it's casting across the church forecourt.
