From Wikipedia

St Patrick’s Cathedral is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia, and seat of its archbishop, currently Denis J. Hart. The building is known internationally as a leading example of the Gothic Revival style of architecture.

In 1974 Pope Paul VI conferred the title and dignity of minor basilica on it. In 1986 Pope John Paul II visited the Cathedral and addressed clergy during his Papal Visit.

The Cathedral is built on a traditional east-west axis, with the altar at the eastern end, symbolising belief in the resurrection of Christ. The plan is in the style of a Latin cross, consisting of a nave with side aisles, transepts with side aisles, a sanctuary with seven chapels, and sacristies. The 103.6 metres (340 ft)-long church is the tallest church in Australia, followed by the St Paul’s Cathedral, Melbourne and the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Bendigo.

    rich and lingering with emotion, the presence of clouds gives credence, love the colors intermingled in the intricacies of the architecture. The doors create a wonderful vanishing point in this magnetic piece, well done, very well done

  • Thanks Jeff. Your critique means a lot to me :)

    If that were a blue sky, it wouldn’t look as good or be as dramatic. Did you wait for a cloudy day, William? I think you’re gonna go down in history as the bloke who never took a bad shot.

  • Aww Gary, you’re going to inflate my ego way too much. Thanks mate :)
