In Pictures: Post-Blizzaster Gary City Methodist Church

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Feb 8, 2011 5:20PM

We've showed you photographs of City Methodist Church in Gary, IN before, but in a more palatable climate. Photographer David Tribby, whose photographs were the basis for the earlier look into Gary's urban flight and decay, shared two photos of City Methodist Church with us after last week's blizzard.

To our eye, there's something peaceful about these two shots, as though the church is in nothing more than a suspended state, waiting for renewal. then again, we also think the shots could serve as a setting for a Hammer Films-era Dracula movie. What do you see?
