I was told that one way to tell the status of a church in Sao Joao Del Rei, Brazil is by how ornate the main entry is. This entryway is one of the most ornate I found.

In this town of approximately 80,000, there are over 70 churches in town; from very small and plain, to large and ornate. This isn’t the largest or fanciest church in town, but it is close.

I’ll shoot anything that catches my eye, but I love it when somebody says “I never looked at it that way before” or even just a little “ooooh”. If I can make you stop and say “hmm”, that’s the best. I normally use minimal processing; a little bump in color and/or contrast, maybe a little cropping. But sometimes I just can’t resist the urge to play with an image.
