I could easily have spent a whole day inside Grace Cathedral during my visit to San Francicso. It’s a gorgeous building with so many interesting little details that set it apart from many other cathedrals.
I already mentioned the fascinating scientifically-themed stained glass but here’s another example – a large, brass chi-rho symbol embedded into the floor of the nave partway down the aisle. There’s also a labyrinth on the nave floor behind me (I may post a shot containing it later). Both of these make great foreground elements in shots of the whole nave, adding even more interest to shots which are already fascinating due to the majesty of the building itself.
Knowing that I wanted to make the symbol a major part of the composition, I set up right above it with the fisheye lens and shot this image. Of the pictures I’ve processed from the cathedral, this is definitely my favourite so far.
