One of the things I love about the Trinity Church is its location — allowing for it to be photographed reflected* against the shimmering glass windows of the John Hancock Tower — an image that I think nicely symbolizes the blending of old and new — much like the city of Boston itself! However, I was quite pleased with the picture-postcard like feel of this shot, taken from the main entrance, so I went with this one instead for today’s photoblog. (* — my attempt at capturing the reflection)
Some tourist-guide type background information on the church —
Trinity Church is located in the middle of Copley Square, nestled between the Hancock Tower (I M Pei’s famous and controversial creation) and the Boston Public Library. Built between 1873 and 1877, it is considered a classic example of French Romanesque architecture in the United States — a style now known as Richardson Romanesque after the church’s architect Henry Hobson Richardson. The church also boasts of gorgeous stained glass murals by American artist John La Farge. If interested, checkout this slideshow on the church’s website that gives you a virtual tour of the insides.
