Chapel Of The Friendly Bells

Uploaded: November 06, 2010


I have always loved the architecture of this beautiful, historic church located in downtown Youngstown, Ohio. The Chapel itself is non-denominational, but is part of Trinity Methodist Church which was founded in 1803 in Deerfield, Ohio - which is 25 miles west of Youngstown. The congregation then moved to what is now Youngstown. The actual stone Church in this shot was built in 1883.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.33, ExposureTime: 1/320 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 52.00 mm, Model: NIKON D200
