Whenever I travel out of town I always make it a priority to worship on Sunday. I love the experience of blending in with a group of worshippers I've never met or enjoying the splendor of their worship facility. There's nothing like being in God's house. Most of the time I have to ask a local where is a good place to worship in my particular faith. However, because we were staying in the home of a friend naturally I tagged along with them. Of course, I took my camera with me and that's when the curiosity and fun began.
Initially, when I pointed my camera at someone and my shutter fired, their eyes grew wide, and plenty of heads in the congregation turned when they realized I was taking pictures. I think most of folks thought I was some sort of government spy. However, after I got to introduce myself as a visiting photographer from Florida,tensions relaxed and I was able to capture the heart of the service and it's people. It was such a great feeling to see praise and worship through the eyes of my camera which is something I've never done before. I hope you enjoy the glimpses of what I experienced in this tiny Methodist church in St. Croix.
