Wayfarers Chapel - Night & Day



Another PV landmark is the glass chapel by Lloyd Wright (son of FLW). This was taken from Palos Verdes Dr. West. There is no place to park here, so I took a short walk along the (luckily) wide margin by the road to get to the night photo vantage point. The lower photo was taken from a trail paralleling the drive.

How one place can look so different night and day.

I absolutely love the wayfarers chapel. I left my camera the day we drove in that direction so I have no pictures.

It's as beautiful at night as it is during the day. The light hitting the branches and wood beams. I wonder if FLW junior thought that out ahead of time. So many variables in design.

I love the view from up there at the Wayfarer's Chapel on a clear day! I've been meaning to drive out there for a visit...it's been about three years. I've never seen it lit up at night - very dramatic.
