The way in


I have finally made it to the inside of Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral with a camera, but no tripod alas so hand holding was difficult and most shots were useless.

It is over forty years since I was last in here, doesn't seem to have changed much. This is the main entrance door to the Great Space. It was only afterwards that I found out that the strip of letters above the door is an artwork in neon by Tracy Emin and reads "I felt you and I knew you loved me. "  The artwork in the Cathedral was the first winner of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Arts Award.

That is one wide-angle shot, Les! It's magnificent and does the cathedral justice, I'm sure!
Les Auld: Soring heights and dark corners are made for cathedrals Ginnie, thanks for the comment.

Beautiful stonework, Les; I like the colour of the stonework. Shame about the tripod, though.
Les Auld: Maybe I can go back with a monopod, thanks for the comment Alan.

What impressive arches - it's always difficult taking pictures in churches because of the low light levels but you have done really well here.
that's one of the good things about churches - they don't change much!

Les Auld: The place is full of arches Ingrid, you just can't get away from them, and I'm sure you will see a few more. Thanks for the comment.
The converging lines really work in this les, and it is a good shot considering it is hand held in only modest lighting.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, a bit of processing helped as well.
We went here once many years ago and this picture reminds me what a fine building it is. Funny to think it was only actually finished in 1978.

I hadn't realised that the Roman Catholic cathedral was designed by an Anglican and the Anglican cathedral by a Roman Catholic...but then it is Liverpoolgrin
Les Auld: Life is full of surprises Bill, especially in Liverpool, thanks for the comment.
Nice image and well hand held. I'm also practicing this technique because somehow many people and organizations don't like my tripod at all.
Les Auld: Slow deep breathing and a convenient pillar always tends to help me Paul, thanks for the comment.

Les Auld: There are so many images in there Tim, thanks for the comment.
