The steely grey sky blends in with the three domes of the Romanian Orthodox Church near Barton and James Streets in Hamilton. I couldn’t find much information about this uncommon (for this area) church, except that it was built between 1958-60.

  1. Beautiful church and it does match the skies perfectly! Terrific capture, Lesley! Happy SWF! Hope you have a great weekend!


  2. It’s beautiful! Happy Friday!

    Bridge and Sky

  3. Almost looks like 3 observatories domes ready to ck out the skies above.

  4. I am not keen on churches, but the graphic effect is great in this one.

  5. The gray towers blend in with the sky. I rather like that this building offers a different type of architecture than what one might normally see in the area.

  6. lovely ~ churchs alway have such great architecture

  7. We have a couple of interesting churches not unlike this one, here in Oshawa.

    Nice close contrast between the metal and shades of cloud. Good shot.

    Thanks for your visit and comment at Unmeritted Gifts. Much appreciated.

  8. I too love how the domes blend perfectly with the sky! Very ethereal. What a great eye you have!

    And thank you for your comment on my post today – I’m so glad you caught up with my recent adventures and that you love Dragonfly Cottage! 🙂 I was away from blogging for way too long – moving was harder than I remembered (hadn’t done it in nearly 2 decades, so the pain of it had faded, lol)

  9. Nice shot with the greys but it sure has been dreary lately!
    Good idea about the Doors Open next year – I will probably be doing west of Yonge south of Bloor but there are so many that you can’t hit them all. We will have to remember your idea.

  10. Interesting find. I love the photo you took and I am left wondering about the story behind the church and the community that build it.

  11. Interesting!
