St. Louis

I have a lot of good memories in this town. There is a part of me that still gets giddy like a little kid when I drive down I-64 through the City.

If you’ve taken 64 into St. Louis, you may have noticed a large green dome to the West-Northwest.

It is the Cathedral of Saint Louis. It is very big and very beautiful with an absurd number of mosaics. I went there a few weekends back.

After mass a number of people stuck around to take pictures with mostly hand held point-and-shoot cameras. At most a small flash will basically do nothing to improve your photos in a large, relatively dim space. You really need a tripod.

I actually had one guy come up to me and ask if I was a photographer working at the church, kinda like those photographers at Disneyland I guess. I told him “no” but I took a picture of him with his camera. I’m a nice guy like that.

  1. Nice photo of church interior. Feels like a classical HDR motive.
    Thanks for the visit and comment in my blog some time ago.

  2. Love your capture of the St. Louis Cathedral. I grew up near St. Louis and remember the drive down 64 well. You did the inside of the cathedral justice! Attending mass there was always a treat.

  3. The highlights of my trips abroad are usually the inside of the majestic Cathedrals. This one is awesome.
