Sunday Church

The Harlem church of the week is Antioch Baptist Church, on 125th Street:
The blue limo might be a hearse--I'm not really sure. But it was a Saturday morning and another church down the street that I wanted to photograph was definitely having a funeral, so I walked over to this one instead. In a city where most structures are vertical, this church is oddly low and horizontal. Also odd are the wood facade with its small grated "windows" and the white fence-like decoration on either side of the small steeple. I like how the blue limo matched the blue signs and sky, and how the words Antioch and Baptist form a perfect cross.
