Frankfort Presbyterian Church

This Presbyterian Church in Frankfort, Ohio is one of several interesting things I photographed in the village one summer morning last year.

It features some of my favorite things – including these beautiful doors.

And these gorgeous stained glass windows. Notice the angels are African American. That’s not something you see every day in southern Ohio. Aren’t they spectacular?

Churches often have the most stunning architectural features and works of art. I would love to see inside this one someday. People were gathering for a funeral across the street that day so I didn’t linger long but am contemplating returning for a service someday. The windows illuminated at night would be worth the trip.

 

 

 

Dairy Bar Fun

One of the best things about a summer road trip is stopping at a corner dairy bar for lunch or just some ice cream.

On a recent Saturday morning, I drove some backroads looking for photo ops. Lunch was at this fun little dairy bar – grilled cheese and a chocolate shake under an umbrella.

It doesn’t get much better than a cold shake on a sunny blue sky day. If you’re interested, the Frankfort Dairy Cone is in Frankfort, Ohio and it is closed on Sundays. Gotta love a small town mom and pop that still closes on Sunday.

Pay Phones

This photo got a lot of play on my Facebook page last weekend.

Phone booths and pay phones used to be commonplace in cities and rural communities across the country. Today they’re such a rare sight I usually stop and take note when one presents itself. I actually wrote about pay phones on another occasion.

This little beauty is close to an old Masonic Hall turned community building and a cute little dairy bar in Frankfort, Ohio.

It’s another of those things that I photograph largely because they are being lost to time and progress. I wrote a little about that recently and about making pictures that depict all of the scene and not just the pretty part.

Read that here if you missed it.

It’s a weird thing to get excited about but it’s a sort of comfort that such a thing still exists.
