There was one photo I took in the Anglican Cathedral - Cathedral Church of Christ in Liverpool. Completed in 1978, the omnipotent church sits at the other end of Hope Street – with the Roman Catholic Cathedral at the other end.
What impressed me as I toured the church was the light flooding into the church – I was fortunate to visit on a sunny day. One particular photo I took within the Cathedral is one of my favourites from the city. It reminded me of a photo I saw with light cascading across a set of church stairs.
Not only was I able to get light falling onto steps and wall which lead into the main part of the Cathedral, but light is also highlighting the ceiling within the main body of the Church. It could easily be two separate photos, but the two parts of the photo complement together.
The light accentuates the church and its features in a most subtle way. It’s predominantly highlighting the left of the photo, but sneaks some onto the right which balances the photo nicely. It frames the stain glass window at the end of the Cathedral rather well.
While I tend to play with light and shadows in black and white, this image works well in colour. This is mainly due to the stain glass window.
