Fort King Presbyterian Church




Fort King Presbyterian Church presents another unusual architectural design, but is quite attractive. It is located on 36th Avenue, just north of Fort King Street. Fort King Street is named for an important 19th century military post which was located nearby. A replica of this post has been constructed on an island at Silver Springs Park.

Isn't that something? We both posted churches today. I especially liked that third shot. What a window.

Very interesting how they used the stained glass to display the cross. I've never seen that done before.

What a fantabulous window .. it explains the soaring buttruss-y shape of the building .. well captured!

Will need to bookmark you as another "Sacred Sunday" blogger! Love the geometry in these shots. Pee Wee Herman (if you remember him) would say, "Ohhheeeeuuuw.... triangley!" Now off to check out Don and Krise!

It's very modern but attractive also.

That really is a powerful design. Very attractive and makes its heavenly point very clear. Morw and more churches are moving away from the new England church spire tradition and forging a new architectural path. This is a perfect example.

I like this church and your way to photograph the building. These vertical lines give us an idea of the straight spaces inside. The exterior is quite modern and not so like our typical church.
The glass work of the great window is outstanding.

What wonderful angles! That is such a gorgeous stained glass window and very untraditional. I like it.

It has original shape!

JM said...

Great shots! I especially love the angles on the 1st and 3rd photos.

That's a different design! I like to see interesting work still being put into churches. Love the billowy white clouds in the blue sky.

That's quite creative . . . I like your shot of the outdoor tower especially. Both are good. It seems pretty unusual.

We find the angles of the architecture not only eye catching but also very modern and attractive.

These are some really superb compositions. Specially the second and the third one... absolutely love these pictures...

J'aime beaucoup la ligne très épurée de ce vitrail !

Les masques d'hier me plaisent bien aussi.

Beautifully designed to have the stained glass right behind the pulpit!

Particularly well done, this interior shot. A powerful statement - architecture as well as photography.

It has been an interesting theme as of late with many shots of churches. Such a diverse type of building that the contrasts between photos are outstanding. The composition with the sky is very well done. I love days like that.

Very very nice photos, Jacob.
I love the interior, notably the stained glass.
