Forge Hollow Meeting House. January 19, 2012

Here’s a rather austere snippet of the Forge Hollow Meeting House taken this January:

It’s like a reflection about a vertical axis, but not completely so.  Finding what’s not reflective is like a puzzle which is still surprising me.

Beyond that, this photo asks me questions.  How were those two doors used?  One in, one out?  His/Hers?

I don’t know, but I thought I’d throw this out to you before I throw this out.  I don’t see it in a frame, but I’m glad I got to see it.

Very cool.

Glad you find it so, Cuz. I’m still waiting for a big dump to show you, but so far, nada.

I loved your writing and spectacular pictures! Thank you for posting such beauties! I feasted my eyes on them, the color, framing, and content were so different and fresh! I really enjoyed them!

Hi Diane, and welcome!

I’m glad to hear that you like what I’m able to do here. I’m working hard on my photos, and trying to get my words back – I used to write a good deal more, but that facility just up and deserted me a while back.

I take it you figured the “follow” thing out, which I don’t really know about, so good for you. 🙂

Thanks for posting our meeting house – we fixed the belfry (trees were growing out of it) but she sure needs a new coat of paint….

Funny, your two door theory reminds me of Orthodox Judaism – separate doors and sections for men and women. Of course this was always a Congregational church, so not the case! Maybe there were so many congregants way back that they needed two doors?

I have some night pics of the meeting house from last winter – if I can find them I’ll post them on forgehollow.com

Thanks for the great shot, as always.

Could it have two doors for both traffic and airflow? Are there corresponding doors on the other side like in a Federal style building?

I love this from the monochromatic nature. Now I’m going to go to forgehollow to find out when the meeting house was built.

1846 or 1847 – I live in the green house just past – come visit and I’ll show you the inside, it’s awesome.

Hi Pam, I felt funny posting this without letting you know first… it was almost like trespassing to me. But then, I’m a private kinda guy and think of others as being similarly minded, and didn’t want to intrude on your beautifully private place.

As for the design of the facade, I would have thought double doors would serve the same purpose more effectively, but the aesthetics of the existing set-up present an alternative which is both functional and humble. I can’t pretend to have the solution to this mystery, but I’m not above positing one.

Lisa, you sultry sleuth, Googlz Away! 😉 And thanks for not being bored by my recent affair with monochromatic images. It’s forcing me to look for values beyond color, and hopefully making me more aware of other elements in my photos.

I almost never leave a response, however I browsed a ton of responses on this
page Forge Hollow Meeting House. | Little Bang Theory. I actually do have some questions
for you if you don’t mind. Could it be just me or do some of these comments look like they are left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Could you list of all of all your social community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Mole Control, I’m sorry to say that I’m not impressed by your question. Suggesting that my commenters might be “brain dead” is presumptive and insulting, and after going back through the comments, I believe it’s not warranted.

I’ve pretty much put blogging on the back burner and post my photos more frequently on Facebook, where my “friends” run the gamut from Einsteins to simple folk with beautiful hearts. If you find me there, please be kind to my friends; I see no reason to subject them to the harsh judgements of a stranger.
