Urban landscapes: the light of night
ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST CATHOLIC BASILICA, NEWFOUNDLAND
During a business trip to this eastern Canadian province I made sure to make two stops at this glorious church in St. John’s. The first, in daylight, captured the splendid interior. When I realized the exterior was lit at night, I came back to make pictures like this, knowing the illumination would be far more dramatic. I also went with black-and-white, since there was almost no colour to be had.
This basilica 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.
