Epiphany Church in Khimki

The Church of the Epiphany in the town of Khimki

The Church of the Epiphany in the town of Khimki, Moscow region, is built at the initiative of believing residents and City administration support.
Brick five-domed Church, founded in 2004, is open in late 2008
This is the first in a New Khimki Orthodox Church, which very long waited.
Although the Church of Epiphany and “remake”, but there is unconventional, interesting architectural elements. For example, a window in the form of an Orthodox cross.

Храм Богоявления Господня города Химки Московской области, построен по инициативе верующих жителей города и поддержке Администрации города. Кирпичная пятиглавая церковь, заложена в 2004 г., открыта в конце 2008 г.
Это первый в Новых Химках православный храм, который очень долго ждали, т.к. до других многим людям было неудобно и долго добираться.
Хоть Богоявленский храм и «новодел», но есть нешаблонные, интересные архитектурные элементы. Например окна в виде православного креста.

Carmel Mission Twilight

Sometimes the show is just starting when the crowds leave. This weekend I saw some of the biggest crowds I’ve ever seen at the Carmel Mission ( Mission San Carlos Borromᅢᄅo del rᅢᆳo Carmelo ) in Carmel by the Sea. From weddings to tourists and even the occasional church service this beautiful gem of Spanish and Moorish architecture is well loved and often visited. But this evening after the sun set and the last people were leaving the parking lot, I stopped by with my camera. Only the faintest color of the sunset remained on the horizon, and the stars were clearly visible overhead. But a slightly longer than usual exposure revealed all the beauty of the misson at rest in its faint lights after a long day of festivities and worship.
