Howard took this aerial of Blessed Sacrament Church in March 1961. I think he had contracted with the diocese to take photos of all of the churches for insurance records. I'm pretty sure he was using a yellow filter, which turned the asphalt coal black and gave trees and shrubbery an ethereal glow.
