131/365 - St. Anne's

A multi-coursed doorway made of red sandstone.

The doorway to St. Anne's, the French-Canadian Catholic Church in Calumet, MI. Yes, Calumet had a Catholic Church just for the French-Canadians -- and also one for any other nationality you can imagine, plus many variations on Methodists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, and even a few non-Christian religions (but not that many, since these were all from 1900's Calumet!). The church is now the amazingly restored Keweenaw Heritage Center. This entranceway is made of Jacobsville sandstone, and the building soars for 3 stories above it.

Did you buy a fisheye lens or was this done with software?

@Jay: I wish I had a fisheye for this! This was initially a backwards use of a lens-distortion correction tool in Gimp -- and I liked the result. :)

What an awesome shot and edit!
