Great macro shot!
This church was built in 1875 and is a typical example of rural New Zealand churches of its era. It is still in use and beautifully preserved and maintained outside and in. We couldn't get inside because it was locked, but the interior woodwork is a must for a return visit!
After taking my Mom on her Saturday errands, we stopped by the KFC and each got a chicken breast combo meal, for lunch. After lunch, I got the saw out from under the living room couch and cleared the fallen limbs off of the Ford. Then, I removed the battery and took it to a nearby service station to have it charged. Right now, I'm waiting for a couple hours to pass before going back to get the battery.
About an hour and a half passed, and I returned to the service station. A man there told me that the battery would barely take a charge. I took it back to my Mom's house, put it into her car, and tried to crank it. It wouldn't start. Looks like I'll have to buy a new battery. Rats.
