Saint Augustine Cathedral

On our recent visit, we had the privilege of toust-augustine-7727ring the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine.
The spire of the church is one of the most recognizable features of St Augustine’s historic district.  When you look down Cathedral Street, the cathedral and the tops of the main buildings from nearby Flagler College draw your eyes toward the sky.

St Augustine Cathedral was part of the original Spanish colony but the original buildings were small and crude.  The current building was constructed over five years, from 1793–1797, it is the oldest church in Florida.  The interior is full of beautiful stained-glass and elaborate details.  The exterior is a combination of Spanish mission and Neoclassical styles.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
