The Recycled Church: Wilmington, North Carolina, USA



What a fantastic idea for a church!! Constructed from over 4000 glass bottles, the "Bottle Chapel" in Arlie Gardens was built as a tribute to Minnie Evans, the grounds keeper of the gardens when they were a part of a private estate. Fascinated by the late afternoon light shining through the bottles on the ceiling, this little boy was waiting on his mother to find her camera in her purse when I snapped his photo. (p.s. --- they were doing some construction, hence the ladder in the photo :-))
