St. Paul's Cathedral, Picture 1, London, England (UK), 1999

St. Paul's Cathedral, Picture 1, London, England (UK), 1999
Designed by Sir Christopher Wren to replace the original St. Paul's Cathedral destroyed in the Great London Fire of 1666, although that earlier St. Paul's, built in 1087-1314, had actually been the fourth cathedral to sit on this site and some historians believe that the site has Roman Pagan origins. There was a church built here at least as early as 604 AD, supposedly on an ancient Roman See. In any case, as a photo, this is one of my all-time favorites, and I hope you like it too. This illustrates what a good camera and even better film can do, giving the lie to the claim that the quality of camera doesn't matter. Of course, I like to think there was some skill involved too.... :-) That fuzz in the background is because, regrettably, Ritz ripped me off on the scanning. They even damaged the slide.
