Angels on the doors


Atlanta's sometimes notorious megachurches grab the headlines, but to me far more interesting, at least architecturally, are the humble neighborhood places of worship. Recently, I came across these two buildings while driving in a northwest section of town. The stylized angels on the doors of the first church caused me to pull over and grab my camera. When I left I took a route I had not taken before and off to the right, partially hidden on a rise, was the second church, more fortress-like. I drove up the curving driveway to get a full view and was taken with the rich blue color and the blocky glass cross. Neighborhood churches -- they do their own thing without fanfare. Makes for a more interesting world.
