Sunday morning

It’s Sunday morning and I thought this was a good image to post before I run out to cantor at two consecutive masses this morning.  The Cathedral of St Augustine is full of stained glass but I really liked this one window which had sunlight streaming in through it.  The little streaks of color were dancing around in the cove of this window and made it fantastically beautiful.

Pray for me, that my voice doesn’t give out and I will pray for you for a great week to come.

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.

Beautiful church interior

St Peter Chanel Catholic Church in Roswell, GA

So, I was busily working on post-processing wedding pictures from the event I shot yesterday when I realized there was not a post out there for today.  Being a Sunday, I thought this nice church interior I got from last week would be appropriate.

This is the interior  of St. Peter Chanel Catholic Church in Roswell, Georgia.  This is just down the road from my home parish and I was there to shoot a marriage blessing for a couple that are members of Peter Chanel.  The main sanctuary is cathedral-style and includes some beautiful stained-glass.  I thought this was a good opportunity to practice my panorama skills and I think it came out pretty well.
