I just want to remind everyone that if you submit something it needs to be sourced.  All that’s needed is the URL where it can be found and associated with the photographer who took it.

If you’ve recently submitted something, even something that’s been published (I can make mistakes too!), if it doesn’t have a source or you think it might not, please write in our inbox or email us.  There are a few things I’d like to publish but can’t without a source!

Thank you!

blsedmom3 asked: Do you ever take or get photos of some of the magnificent gargoyles that adorn so many churches? I would love to see some photos! Thamks


Answer:

This is a great idea - thanks!  I do like to include photos of details on sacred architecture as well as the larger building.  I’ll keep this in mind!
