This Catholic church was built in 1913 and is the most prominent landmark in Colton, Washington. We stopped to get a picture of this beautiful building on our return trip this week. Colton is a small country town of around 450 population.
Lovely red church. I like !

It's so immaculate it looks unreal. Amazing that it's nearly 100 years old could almost have been built yesterday :)
@grouser: It had a number of wires in and around the street which I removed.
We have many like this in rural Ontario. Handsome and so very well built. You did it photographic justice with this nicely framed shot.

Hi Don, I don't know if it's just my computer at work (I'm on my computer at home right now) or what's going on, but this is the 1st time in several days that I've been able to get on your blog... All week it kept saying that this blog doesn't exist & would take me to an error page. I kept meaning to try here at home, cuz I'd only tried from work, but I kept forgetting. Now, that I know I can get thru, I'll try again from work tomorrow... that computer is old & I can only run one program at a time on it, so I'm guessing that's the problem.

Superbe sur ce ciel bleu et ce ton brique.
On dirait 2 petits yeux qui me regardent sur le clocher .
Bel angle de prise.)

Beautiful church on a beautiful day.

Beautiful brick church! Nice capture :)
I can see why the building appeals ... I couldn't help but notice the name of the street: Steptoe Street! What a perfectly cloudless day for showcasing this old church

Someone stole the clock

That sure is a beautiful church...there is a Catholic church over in Illinois that I want to photograph, but have not attempted it yet.

1913....? it's in great condition, almost looks brand new.
7 Nov 2011 2:36am
wow! it's incredibly clean and well-kept for 1913!

So clean and pure and simple in all ways. Churches are a symbol of a higher consciousness to me, and I always enjoy looking at them anywhere I find myself. Nice "catch," Don. :-)

i like the clear and straight lines and the brick architecture that emphasizes the white lines of the windows ...
7 Nov 2011 6:06pm
looks like it was just built, so new and clean
8 Nov 2011 8:50am
It's in great condition, I would never guess it was almost 100 years old!

It's a well preserved church for a town of 450. It must draw people from surrounding farms.
