Ellinger and St Mary's Catholic Church
Alcy knows much more about the back roads of Texas around Houston than I do. That is when it comes to where to stop to shop or eat. According to her, Hurusha's in Ellinger is a must stop for kolaches. I'm glad we did because we noticed a sign as we were pulling in pointing to St Mary's three miles up the road. The light was not good but we took a few photographs.
I did a few shots in the graveyard but I only got a one of a crucifix that is a keeper.
Sometimes I make a major mistake and end up with something that I think is much better than I was going for. The following photograph is an example. I accidentally set the camera to DX mode which did a pretty severe crop that I did not notice until after takeing several photos. On this photograph of Madonna and Child, I would never have intentionally composed this way. However it is much stronger than the simple documentation that I had intended. DuChemin says that you still get credit even if it is a mistake.
