It's a work in progress, as is everything I do. I hope to get the fringing worked and uploaded in the near future.

I have been invited by the Prior of Mt. Angel Monastery to do their campus this coming weekend.

Great Shots.

Good to see churches in such excellent state of repair.

The Cathedral was restored in the early 90's and you can already find plaster separating, of course the contractor blames ....

The Parish was almost grounded from an earthquake in the 90's and had huge areas of ceiling fall and the bell tower separated from the Church. 1 hour before Sunday morning mass. Services were held in the Oktoberfest beer garden.

The Abbey, in the Church I noticed stains on the pews and when I looked up you could see water stains on the ceiling. It is the smallest and will be in some respects the most interesting to look at.
