Day 34



There’s just something so beautiful about steeples.  Part of what I love about them so much are how different they can be, yet each one is stunning.

Today I had a Parent/Teacher Conference for Itty Bitty at the Preschool run by the Church.  I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to snap a pic if the weather cooperated!


I heart steeples!

Lens 50mm f/1.4
