"Did I Say 'No Photography Allowed?'" St. Paul's Cathedral Tip by mrclay2000
St. Paul's Cathedral, London: 272 reviews and 492 photos
St Paul's was my first important European cathedral, and as such I had no common point of reference. When I first entered and marched through the cold nave, my expectations were a little wounded until I reached the area beneath the dome. If the decoration that covers the transepts and the altar were extended to the nave, I might say this church competes with St Peter's. Suddenly confronted with so much finery, I wanted to take a million pictures, when another man was peremptorily ordered to put away his camera. With an unexpected change of heart, he shortly turned aside the prohibitive icon, and added, "I don't see why you can't take a shot."
I took him at his word, consuming two entire rolls -- on a tripod no less, taking the ultimate license.
