Saturday Photo Hunt: SYMBOLIC

March 11th, 2012 (03:33 pm)





This week's theme for the Saturday Photo Hunt is "Symbolic." I had so many appropriate photos that it was hard to choose. I was tempted to post several, but in the end I chose to stick with just one.

Here is the photo I decided to go with. The steeple is of St. Mary's Catholic church in Fairfax Station, Virginia. I was married there, and also had my First Holy Communion there. The photo was taken while I was with friends on a Snarfari -- a day of visiting historic landmarks and historic markers in order to collect photos and information on them for the Markeroni website.

I love the juxtaposition of an old symbol (the church steeple) with a modern one (the airplane and jet trail).
