West Fork United Presbyterian, 2017

Every now and again, while driving around, I’ll spot one of those ubiquitous Historical Marker signs, and follow it to see what’s so historic.

West Fork was one of the early (white) communities in North Texas, established as the Watson Community in 1846. They built a church and school in 1870 and replaced it with a larger, more modern building in 1905. The second church was destroyed by fire in 1924, and this building was constructed on the site and dedicated April 18, 1926.

So quite historic, I guess, and I think it’s still in use today. Probably some pretty good music on a Sunday morning. I imagine an older, upright, slightly out of tune, piano and my Granny singing her great, strange, wonderful 7th part, diminished, harmonies (if that’s even a thing… I don’t know much about music).

Ferrania P30, shot through the 50mm f/1.2 Ai-S in the Nikon FE, and developed in Rodinal 1:50 for 8 minutes.
