After a 80+ pictures in explore I suddenly seem to have a series of pictures that even show up on Explore Frontpage. I really like it as joining Flickr I wanted my picture to be seen. I joined several groups to post them too, I tagged and geo-tagged them. I found wonderful contacts (more than I'm able to visit every day) and learned a lot more than I ever expected. Thank you all for that.

 

Reading about Explore and its frontpage on flickr central and other places I found some very controversial discussions about the "Explore Game". Thoughts on making Explore at ...-Wink's Place-... provided me with a quote from Wink that seems to express my way of thinking quite good:

 

"I've always tried to reciprocate comments and fav photo's even before I knew about Explore and I'm not going to change the way I am because some folks think it's gaming the system just because my way coincides with the algorithm."

 

That said: This picture will not make it to the frontpage as I don't want to add a border on the sides to make it appear like a square format (as portrait formats don't show up on frontpage)

 

Day 5 and 6 of our vacation trip

Savannah, GA

 

Independent Presbyterian Church

 

Closely modeled after his own designs for the First Congregational Church of Providence, Rhode Island, architect John Holden Green designed the original building on the present site.

 

Present at the dedication of this building on Sunday, May 9, 1829 was John C. Calhoun, President James Monroe, and members of his cabinet. Reporting on this occasion, The Columbian Museum and Savannah Daily Gazette wrote that "from grandeur of design and neatness of execution, we presume this church is not surpassed by any in the United States."

 

The magnificent edifice of 1819 was destroyed by the great fire of 1889. It was decided to reconstruct the sanctuary exactly as it had been. Hope you enjoy the view.

 

If you got time, join me on a short walk through Savannah.
