When I think of what the word beloved means to me, I always seem to visualize it in a religious image.
I like to photograph churches, inside and outside, crosses and images of saints.
This is the alter in a small little church we stopped to visit on a tour through the island of Aruba.
It’s very primitive in that it isn’t ornate like some other churches I’ve photographed.
Yet, saintly spirituality permeated the alter.
A rustic hewn wooden cross sits atop the steeple.
Although there are benches and padded kneeling inside,
most people sit and listen to the service outside on concrete benches.
There is no air-conditioning in the church. Aruba is an island with very hot temperatures.
In fact, there are cactus on the island as it gets very little rain.
People walk for miles to worship in this little charming church.
I hope you enjoy my visit to this charming church.
