Urban landscapes: welcome to the basilica
ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST BASILICA, ST. JOHN’S, NEWFOUNDLAND
The interior of this cathedral is stunning — you can see inside here: https://wp.me/p2ccTX-15a — but I also like the street entry onto the grounds. I spent 15 minutes on framing possibilities, making sure there was perfect symmetry (which is often surprisingly difficult to achieve).
This place of worship was constructed between 1839 and 1855; at the time, it was the largest Irish cathedral outside of Ireland. The basilica was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1983. Notice the two clocks are showing different times?
