RE: CB1100 Monthly Photo Challenge
Guess nobody wants to be first lol

Here is a Catholic church in Lubbock. Chose it for a couple of reasons:

1. It's close and it is kind of cool today

2. The dome is picturesque

3. Although I have no affiliation, I have 8 generations of family history back to 1627 and they were all Roman Catholic. Emigrated from Village of Heuthen in Prussia (now Germany) in 1851 thru Galveston and settled in the Texas hill county. Traceable thru the St. Nicholas Catholic church records in Heuthen.

4. Also get credit for late entry for November challenge (flags). They are everywhere in Lubbock

5. With about 220 churches in Lubbock, you have to start somewhere Angel

Very nice, RockHop! Good to have some local background as well.
These are in the little town of Durham, not far from me...
   

   

Unfortunately, I had to crop the cross in both shots. There were cars around in the first one and I couldn't get far enough away in the second.
(Take the picture vertically, dummy) Next time.

Bike looks great as always use2b. The church is great too. Love the woodwork and speaking for myself, who and what it represents. Many Honda ancestors were/are Buddhist so I think spirituality and bikes go together. Freedom. Individuality. Riding out of the crowd, which, the CB just happens to do quite well. Gold is amazing as a CB color.

Great church pics, everyone!. I hope I feel well enough to ride tomorrow and I can get my submission in.

Thanks for the history along with the pic, RockHop. Start thinking about what your January challenge will be.

Already have one in mind MTC, but lot’s of time to cogitate about it. I really like ferret’s challlenge for December. Easy to find, but lot’s of opportunity to look for something historical or exceptionally unique or beautiful.

I spotted 2 on this mornings ride that will make for good pics I think. Will try and get back out tomorrow on the CB and snap them. It was 27 degrees this morning and I was on the ST.
