Get Right

Church, Harlan County, Kentucky 2015 © jwl

I think I'd be hard presses to find a better example of Southern Vernacular than this church. Maybe a ramshackle clapboard house, but Walker Evans did that already. Not that I am reinventing the wheel here, but it's a pretty photograph of a simple and probably well loved church.

What struck me when I arrived here (other than the Wild Turkey running past the church into the hills) was the materials. Corrugated steel, no windows, a simple window unit AC built into the wall. They like their God a little warmer in KY!
