11-05-2009 Panna Maria

Established in December of 1854, Panna Maria, Texas is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the “Oldest Polish Settlement in the United States”. The emigrants from Upper Silesia Poland, built this church two years after their arrival and dedicated it to the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

It is a beautiful structure inside as well, only i was trying to not look like a tourist…. so I haven’t any images of the interior.

  1. I like this kind of churches. It is so simple looking and that makes it to me so that I like it.

  2. wonderful sky!

  3. Your use of the light to emphasize the planes of this lovely building is excellent. These two images have a very spare, clean graphic character that I really admire.

  4. the blue and white are really nice.

  5. The white church against the blue sky. Simple and beautiful composition.
