St. George church was started by a group of Greek Orthodox brothers shortly after statehood. By 1921 they had raised enough funds to build a church at the corner of NW 8th and western. During this period there was great growth among the congregation. They had their traditional greek festivals which were open to the public during and lent and led many community outreach programs. The church thrived and outgrew its original location in 1983. They purchased a property in far northwest Oklahoma City and began construction on a new and larger church. With the move they removed all relics, stained glass windows and all Icons installed in the church at its construction. The old location is now owned by a development company. The rectory recently suffered a fire leaving half of the structure unrecognizable.

does anyone know how I can get in to this area and do some photo shoots with a bunch of models of mine? I just need to know my name and a phone number or contact information so that I don't cross over boundaries without permission. Thanks,

Why are you so obsessed with shooting nude gay models in churches?

lol. I didn’t even see that….

if you look at #21, you will notice if you look close that the car was removed from the picture entirely. There was a car sitting in the driveway in the original photo… I call it digital wizardry
