Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
In Canada I think there are more Protestants than Catholic churches, right?Tomás.
I like that red brick. One doesn't see brick often around here and these shots remind me how much I miss it.
I like the first shot.I wonder how many churches you have in Ottawa ...
Impressive crane next door.
it's a pretty church and it looks like spring has arrived there!
I am surprised at the age of that church, as it looks a more "modern" building.
That looks like a really big church!
This is a big one William, love the red brick too. Wonder if it attracts a big congregation?
Can ya go wrong with brick? Really??? Habs down 2-0. Gotta love it! Go Lightening! hahahaha
very solid structure.
William, love the architecture of this church. It looks so majestic.
You have just a few churches without a steeple, unthinkable here.
@Tomas: it depends where one goes. Here there are a great many Catholic churches. It might seem like a lot of Protestant churches, but the Protestant movement is broken up into multiple denominations.@Olivier: I certainly do like the style of the church.@Stuart: in this part of the country, red brick is a very common sight with churches.@Jan: we do have a lot. I do know they're not all listed, oddly enough, in phone books or online directories, since I've looked and missed at least a couple of churches I know are out in the city, but not present in those resources.@Revrunner: a parking garage is being built just up the street about a block away, so that's a current sight in the neighbourhood.@Tanya: and so quickly, too- the tree out front in one shot is bare, and in the other the buds are showing.@Gill: it does have quite a modern design.@Furry Gnome: fairly big for a Protestant church, anyway.@Grace: the website indicates that it's a very active congregation, so I would think it's in good shape.@Birdman: well, I'm actually rooting for a Canadian team to win the Cup, but that might not happen this year again.@Tex: it definitely is.@Linda: it's quite a landmark in this area.@Karl: I think many of our churches would rate as brand new by European standards!
When I was growing up we went to a brick church so I tend to think that brick is the perfect construction material for a church.
This is a more traditional building and I always like bricks!
Very nice, William.
Very beautiful church and info. I do like the Orthodox Church of the previous post---very un-orthodox.MB
What a beautiful church. I love buildings with bricks!
Definitely a church! Nice architecture!
That is a very different steeple. Beautiful church.
It is quite unusual, William. I like it.
I can root Canadian too... but NOT this team. hahahahahaha
Any idea how many churches there are in Ottawa?
Rather striking architecture, I don't think I've ever seen anything like it!
Another beautiful church. I like this one too!
Very interesting style. I would have put it at much later than the dates you give.
Just goes to show what a difference a day makes. No matter, the church looks great in both shots.
It's kind of pretty.
@Sharon: the church we attended when I was a child was a combination of brick and wood frame for some of the decorative features.@VP: this one does stand out nicely.@Judy: thanks!@Linda: thank you.@MB: and yet inside, that church is very Orthodox. I've never been in this one.@Tamago: so do I.@Cheryl: I like it!@Red: it's always struck me as an enduring kind of building as long as I've been here.@RedPat: thanks!@Birdman: for me, the only Canadian team I could never root for is the Leafs, but since they'll never see the Cup again, that's a safe assumption.@Norma: quite a lot, but probably more than phone book listings actually tell.@Ciel: whoever designed it did a good job.@Marleen: thank you!@Linda: I was surprised while looking at the church website about the dates as well.@Lauren: I really noticed the difference in the buds on the leaves that aren't there in that second shot, which was maybe three days earlier.@Whisk: thanks!
A bit of a different style William to the last church but still very interesting...
A lovely stately looking church. I see you have leaves on the trees already.
I like the building lines as you show them in the first shot. Interesting and attractive.
Love those massive old churches. Thanks for Posting.
An impressive building. I do love those windows!
My Baptist Church is 100 years old, and needs upgrading.
Another very nice structure.
I like the windows too.
Beautiful. Wonder how many churches & religious organizations are in your community. JanisGDP
Looks very beautiful church.
A big church! I'm thinking the congregation when this was built was a rather well-to-do one.
@Geoff: radically different styles, but they both appeal to me.@Pamela: just the slightest buds, but now with temperatures warm during the day, they're coming along.@Kay: thanks!@Mari: you're welcome.@Lois: I'll have to slip in sometime and photograph the interior.@Ann: these buildings do need upkeep.@Denise: thank you!@Randy: so did I.@Janis: quite a lot.@Orvokki: I think it is.@EG: no doubt.
Wow. Traffic! Give me the rural roads any day!
