cathedral of saint paul

..the silent shooting mode of the 5dmkiii couldv’e been handy while shooting this quiet place, but i guess mirror slaps pale in comparison to the ripping sound of velcro of a camera bag.. 😀

The Cathedral of Saint Paul (informally known as Saint Paul’s Cathedral) is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama in Birmingham, Alabama. Designed by Chicago architect Adolphus Druiding, the Victorian Gothic-style brick building was completed as a parish church in 1893. It was elevated to Cathedral status with the creation of the Diocese of Birmingham in 1969. (wiki)

  4. Absolute fabulous. I love it that there only few people there. Must have been hard to wait until most of them were gone? I googled for images of the church. to see the outside. You picture is showing at the 5th row 🙂 Impressive building. Love your fish-eye shots very much!

  7. The circular image works extra well with this setting with the windows on either side. Excellent shot. Interesting history of this beautiful place.
