One sunny morning I decided to take pictures of a couple of Hyde Park churches I normally photograph in the afternoon. The morning light, particularly on the front of the abandoned Bethlehem Lutheran, was spectacular.
Update: Bethlehem Lutheran was demolished in the summer of 2014.
Likewise, I was just able to catch a little light on the facade of Holy Trinity, which faces east.
I also found the famous statue of St. Michael that was supposedly never fixed because had not protected the church from the tornado that damaged the first iteration of the church. The blind rose window is another curiosity; rose windows in historic Gothic churches are always at the end of transepts or naves, and not in this location, let alone blind.
