SouthCoast Photo of the Month



Here it is May's SouthCoast Photo of the month!

Here's a picture I took a couple of years ago while attending an event in Fall River's downtown.

What struck me was how the clock tower and church steeple seemed to reach into the sky like the castles of fairy tales. I did some editing to straighten the photo out and to add a soft focus to enhance that 'fairy tale' effect.

The clock tower belongs to the old Durfee High School, which now serves as a court house and the church steeple belongs to the Church of the Ascension. Both buildings have graced the city skyline for over a century.
