In the 1950s St. Monica Catholic Parish was established in Carpentersville, Illinois. They purchased an established dairy farm and converted the barns into a church, offices and classrooms. The structures were well made and have been maintained. The asphalt dates from the early 1960s. A large church was built in the early 70s and the need for parking around the converted church lessened considerably. Some patching work was done and while shooting I found spray paint indicating future work. I quite like the texture of the old and pitted asphalt, as well as the curious style of the former dairy buildings. As is my habit I layered two and more photographs atop each other and played with the outcomes.
