What is it about old churches??

Since I can remember I have always had an appreciation for the architecture of churches. Living in a young country such as New Zealand, where our oldest building dates back to 1822 we don’t have super old features or designs, but I definitely appreciate the age gap and can appreciate soaking up a bit of heritage through my lens.

Here are just a few I have recently managed to photograph, these are 19th century rural churches which I absolutely adore!
