One Room Church by Dale Lockwood

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

Photo taken with my Canon Rebel 450D in Snoqualmie, Washington, USA. This little church is just across the tracks from where I grew up. I used to run and play football with the neighboor kids in the small lot next to it. Having grown up no more than 100 yards from this quaint little building, I know amazingly little about it’s actual history, which I hope to correct. It is quite old for this part of the country and likely dates to the early 1900’s (update the county assesors office records the structure as being built in 1900) when Snoqulamie was a frontier logging town. Today this structure serves as a small day care.

Born and raised in the logging town of Snoqualmie, Washington (the logging days in Snoqualmie are mostly in the past now). I currently reside in Issaquah, Washington. My Canon Rebel 450D was a Christmas gift that has kept on giving me hours and hours of pleasure. I recently aquired a Canon 5D Mark II and I am now learning to use this awesome instument. I hope you enjoy these pictures half as much as I enjoyed capturing them!

    This is so adorable Dale!! I love it!

  • Thanks Sheryl! Thats the little hood where I grew up! There actually is a photography tradition here in this little town. Look up Darius Kinsey sometime, he started in Snoqualmie in the 1890’s. :-)
