4x5 for 365 project (59/365)

This is the St. Paul's UCC Chapel in Amity, Pennsylvania.  It stands next to the much larger yellow brick church that serves the present congregation.  The chapel was built sometime after 1917 when a fire ravaged an earlier Sunday school chapel building on the same spot.  Many of the same bricks used in hte earlier school's construction were used to build the present chapel building.  

I tried a little something different with the pinhole for this shot and took a sheet of Saran Wrap (clear, very thin plastic) and wiped it on some of the snow and ice piles that are covered with road salt in order to give it some dirty texture and grit then I draped that sheet over the front of the 4x5 wooden pinhole camera.  I think I still need to play with the distance between the pinhole and the Saran Wrap to get the exact feel I was going for but it's a start.  I burned the edges a bit in Lightroom to add some drama.
