The book titled, “KYRKJE OF… An Unorthodox Translation of “Church” in Photographs,” discusses many aspects of what went into the creating of the photos, with thoughts on why the images brought contemplation and introspection to the photographer.

Dale says, “The book covers photography from many different genres, many different locations, several of the pages do cover railroads. I want people to look at the images and contemplate what they see in the images, they actually take the time in this crazy world to think about what you are viewing, take your time.”

Dale adds, “To me photography is a very personal experience, a lot of folks take pictures and it’s a quick thing with their phone or they are doing selfies and so forth, when I take pictures, I like to take my time at it, I like to contemplate what I am shooting – the conditions, the lightning and really take time doing it.”
