ST PATRICK'S CATHEDRAL

St Patrick’s Cathedral in East Melbourne, is one of the world's most magnificent and awe-inspiring neo-gothic cathedrals. This bluestone/sandstone gothic revival cathedral was designed by William Wardell. It was built in stages from 1858 to 1940, when finally, the spires were added. St. Patrick’s is a living monument to the faith and generosity of Melbourne Catholics in the boom and bust years of the 19th century. It provides a place of worship, prayer and reflection in today’s busy world.

The photos were taken early in the morning as I was going to work. The overcast sky provided a perfect backdrop for the sunlit buildings as the sun was rising. The cathedral was almost like it was being gilded by the sun rays...
