My most interesting image according to Flickr. This was shot with my old camera (a Nikon Coolpix 8700). It seems this image has sparked an increase in the interest for couples to have their wedding at St. Bridget’s which is a nice side effect.

This red brick Italian Gothic church formally opened its doors in 1887 in Jersey City, New Jersey. Today it houses the parish business office, a bustling day-care center and grammar school, a meeting room for youth of the parish, and a religious education center for both children and adults. St. Bridget’s church, with its spacious rear section, is an ideal location for large and small meetings and retreats.

St. Bridget’s continues to be a worship and gathering place for the descendants of the Irish, Italian and Polish settlers who founded it, as well as the many Filipino and Spanish groups who have moved into the neighborhood. St. Bridget’s also boasts two great volunteer choirs, one in English and one in Spanish, which add greatly to the prayerful worship experience.

Winter sunrise over New York City (NYC), NY and the Hudson river shot from Jersey City, NJ.

This is 5 images processed in Photomatix version 3.1. I then processed in PS 3. Difficult shot given it was a direct sun but you can see just how cold it was that morning (around 5 degrees Fahrenheit).
