I think I’ll watch for and notice church steeples this weekend.    We’ll be going through Northern Wisconsin, Upper and Lower Michigan; small towns, countryside and the city.  


Maybe I’ll see some like this old one: 

or the one I photographed the other night on the way home from a consultation,

or the one across the streeet from us.   

(see the Flickr thumbnails in the sidebar?) 



Why steeples?   I don’t know, really, I’ve just been noticing them lately. Greater Milwaukee has dozens of them, especially downtown. And I’ve observed that not many new churches have steeples  —  I’m wondering why that is.
