St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, Charleston, South Carolina, 2013

Established in 1681, St. Philip’s is the oldest religious congregation in South Carolina. This church, which still dominates the city’s skyline, is the congregation’s third building. It was built in 1836, and the spire was completed in 1850. The tower also serviced as a lighthouse for many years. In this image, I use the spire to pierce the cloud cover overhead, revealing a patch of rich blue sky behind it, and suggesting a church’s heavenly aspirations. My 24mm wideangle lens coverage allows me to move in to emphasize a pair of wrought iron fencing decorations to flank the spire and add a foreground layer of context to the image.
