RE: CB1100 Monthly Photo Challenge
Went looking for some historic churches today.

This Lutheran church was in Posey TX, just South of Lubbock. Dates back to 1920 and still active.

This Episcopal church dates back to 1913 and is the oldest surviving church in Lubbock. It was relocated to the Lubbock Arboretum and has been restored, except for the interior which was gutted when it was used for rental housing and later abandoned. Used primarily for weddings with the adjacent gardens. When I was there today, a couple was being photographed. No vehicle access, so the closeups were sans CB1100.

RE: CB1100 Monthly Photo Challenge
some nice looking Churches and i love hearing about history .
sorry my photo's are so large but the 2nd one says it is 2.75" wide .

the 2nd church i posted is st john the evangelist catholic church with its main building built 1851 .
a 3 block strip park is across the street and every Saturday it is used to sell , trade or barter anything legal without permit , tax or government interference . mostly local produce , meats , cooked food , honey , arts and crafts etc. from 8-2pm

The best part about growing up in Florida is i didn't have to move here when i got old.

I feel safe in speculating that this may be the only motorcycle forum to feature "your bike with a church" month.
Ever.
Unique! That's what we are. Thumbs Up

(01-16-2017 08:30 PM)EmptySea Wrote:  The Challenge: A user (the first one will be yours truly) will pick a location, landmark, geographical feature, etc. to serve as the backdrop for your photo. Users will then post photos meeting the requirement in this thread for our ogling pleasure. The first user to submit a qualifying photo chooses the backdrop for the following month's challenge.

The goal: To encourage users to get out and ride and to document those rides with photos and, most of all, to have a little fun with the whole process.

The Rules:
1. The CB1100 must be the featured bike in the photo. Caption the photo with the date and the location.
2. Feel free to alter your photo to make it look better, but don't cut and paste into another photo just to qualify.
3. The photos should be new photos, not something you had on file and especially not something you posted elsewhere in this forum.
4. You may post multiple qualifying pictures in a month, but the background has to be different (ex. you can post two pictures of your bike in front of a train station, but they have to show two different stations)
5. Not really a rule, but don't stop trying to get a picture for a particular month just because someone beat you to the first post for that month. We want to see lots of pictures.
6. The same user cannot pick the photo subject on consecutive months. If the first photo comes from the same user that posted the first photo in the prior month, the second user posting a photo will get to pick the next background subject.

Truly, 6 rules are probably 5 too many. Just go with the spirit of this challenge and get out and ride your motorcycle!


I thought this might be a good time to restate the challenge and rules so folks don't have to keep going back to page #1.

This has proven to be a fun thread. I hope it continues into 2018.
Here's a recap of the monthly subjects --

January - Statue - Empty Sea
February - Animal - InHouseBob
March - Bridge - Ben70
April - A Gathering - Wisedrum
May - Body of Water - TheFerret
June - Historical Structure - C-Breezy
July - Sunset, No Trees - stateboy
August - 2 CBs - EmptySea
September - Train - Cormanus
October - Fall Colors - GaryMM
November - Two Flags - RockHop
December - Church - TheFerret

Thanks for the great challenges and the great pictures!

Had to show this one simply because its so cute.

Fortunately, there was a women in the Highland Baptist church office that knew the history. Back in 1974, a church member wanted a prayer room that would be available 24/7. The church allowed him to build (and pay for) this tiny chapel in their parking lot.

Unfortunately, demographics have changed in the area and it is no longer kept open.

There's a little chapel in Indiana that looks just like this. It's called "Wayside Chapel" and it's on US52 near Lafayette.

It's amazing that churches have to be locked now. There's an idea for a Honda robot security guard with AI. Great photo, RockHop!
