Thanks!

No, I'm not a photographer.  I have just a regular point and shoot camera, that is ALWAYS with me!

I find Orthodoxy fascinating and it brings me such joy...I can't help but try to capture what I see and share with others.

(If you're on Facebook, I have all the photos from all the Orthodox churches I've visited in the last few years - available to "everyone", not just "friends".)

I'm glad you liked them!  :)

Any idea who did the iconography in the altar area? It reminds me of the iconography in St. Michael's Antiochian Orthodox Church in Greensburg, PA, which I assume was done by Nicholas Papas (who communes there and gives brief talks about icons). Regardless of who did it, it's very nice.
