So beautiful, Chris. And the off-center labyrinth with the light falling on it balanced by balanced by the simple chandelier in the upper left makes for a stunning composition. #9248780

WOW! The repeating patterns - the tones. Such warmth coming from so much surface that should appear hard and cold, but doesn't. Amazing capture.. #9263310

Hi Christopher

I've just got 5 minutes at work and I want to say how magnificent this photo is. In fact your love for the Washington National Cathedral shows in all the photos I have so admired. Very soon I hope to have more time to enjoy all of them with time.

Christopher J. Budny level-classic 9/30/2011 3:35:43 AM

Thank you very much, Fernanda! I appreciate you taking the time to look through them; I do love the cathedral, and it just breaks my heart that they have to remain closed still, due to the extensive damages from from the 8/23/11 earthquake. I don't think I've ever gone this long without giving tours there, in my 16 years as a guide! #9706664

Description

The Chapel of St. Joseph of Arimathea, sunken deep into the crypt of Washington National Cathedral, takes a stylistic departure from the otherwise
English Gothic building, by adopting an older, Norman-influenced architecture. The canvas labyrinth was sized to fit the floor here,
and is also laid out in the nave periodically, for evening programs of meditation and reflection.
