Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt, February 23rd

This week's theme is wooden. I had two ideas, so I'm sharing both.

This wooden ceiling is in the St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Houston. For any of you who saw last week's entry, you'd probably guess I took this on the same trip as that one. This picture is not the greatest to display such a wonderful ceiling, but it was the best I could do that day. The church building is patterned after the neo-Gothic style, which means it is in the shape of a cross and has the ornamentation you'd expect. It was built in the 1930s. The ceiling is supposed to look like a wooden boat, overturned. Since many of the first Christians and apostles were fishermen, and they had to meet in secret, they often met under a boat. The ceiling is supposed to have that feel, as a reminder of those brave souls who literally risked their lives so the Gospel could be spread.
This wooden structure is not really tilted---it was me. I took this in the summer of 2005 in Holland Michigan. That is Larry and B standing in front.

Die Swann windmill was a Dutch windmill, taken apart and re-built in Michigan. The bottom part is brick, but the top is wooden, and the inside has wooden stairs and wooden floors and such. It still grinds flour for sale in their gift shop. Definitely worth a visit!

Want to see more wooden photos? Go to TN Chick, the one who started it all. She has a picture of a wooden game on her site today.

Next week's theme is Party. Ya-hoo!
