Sometimes while I’m working I spot a picture that I want to take for myself,

this is the second of the two pictures I took while documenting the area confirmation service at St. James’ here in Springfield. I was taking a last look around the church for any little architectural details I might want to get a picture of when I noticed this scene. I immediately thought it might work with a small amount of post processing – it was very dark, with no lights on.

I am very pleased with the result, though I wished I’d seen how exactly I’d lined up the Paschal Candle with the window frame. If I had noticed, I would have changed the angle slightly.

While I took the picture for myself, I’ll admit that it was too good to waste, so I’ve used it several times in the diocesan evening prayers on Facebook and Instagram.

And Here’s the other picture.
