I love shooting in European churches. Have I said that before? ;-)
I feel like a broken record here on the blog sometimes. I feel like I am always saying something about sunrise, or churches, or street scenes - primarily in Europe. But the truth is I find that stuff interesting, and you shoot what you like, right? (Unless you are on assignment of course, but that's not what I do. I guess I would do it, but it doesn't ever come up. Speaking of which, if someone needs a photographer to shoot some cool churches in Europe, let me know!)
Anyways, I do love wandering into, around, underneath and sometimes on top of churches in Europe. They are just such compelling subjects. It's the architecture-lover in me coming through, I assume. I do love architecture, that's for sure.
So on one of my visits to sunny Glasgow last year (ok, it's not usually too sunny there, but it sounded good), I made sure to visit Glasgow Cathedral, which is quite fantastic. Incidentally, it also goes by the name St. Mungo's Cathedral - a name that I love - which always makes me think of a Harry Potter book. I think there was something by that name in one of those books, wasn't there?
The exterior is also pretty sweet, being a big cathedral and looking all cathedral-like, but when I was there I found a bunch of scaffolding around the outside, which is another way of saying that I didn't shoot the exterior. I guess it needed a good cleaning, or something. It is several hundred years old.
There also happens to be a local beer there in Glasgow called St. Mungo's and I must say it is rather delicious. I'm not sure if the church endorsed it, but it's pretty heavenly!
