I do photography as a hubby and always looking for something to photograph. Found Fist Presbyterian Church at Bedford St. Stamford Ct. and went to photograph it with my friends. It’s beautifully designed and architecturally is gorgeous!

This church, shaped like a fish (the symbol of Christianity) is one of the most unique architectural attraction of the US. It represents an artistic use of reinforced concrete and has been featured in many catalogues of the period. The stained glass windows make it...More

We stopped by for a quick visit after Sunday morning services. We were lucky to bump into the music director who gave us a brief tour and told us about the history and design of the building. The colors of the glass and the cavernous...More

This is a masterpiece of modern architect by Wallace K Harrison. It looks like a lumpy gray thing on the outside, but inside it is staggeringly beautiful on a sunny day. He used a french technique to cast heavy pcs of stained glass directly into...More

While this church was built back in the late 1950s, it continues to dazzle the eye and bring you to a stand still when you enter it and see the walls of french stained glass. On a sunny morning or afternoon, it radiates and glows....More

This church is worth a visit. It is modern form of architecture and quiet breathtaking when you first walk in. The walls are all stain glass, in a modern form, and tell different stories. I highly recommend it.

If it is open ( usually on Sundays after the service) you can walk in and photograph. It is beautiful and I truly unique - you will make awesome pictures.
