(...or actually what's left of it.) This used to be the most amazing architectural beauty in my city (Winnipeg)... until it burned down in 1968. The fire (they say) made headlines around the world. Before the tragedy, the cathedral was: - 312 feet in length - 88 feet in width - 70 feet in height at the peak of vault ceiling - 150 feet in height to the top of the towers 1. f/3.2 @ 28 mm, 1/5000, ISO 200 2. This one looks maybe 1/2 stop overexposed... f/6.3 @ 11 mm, 1/1250, ISO 200 3. f/5 @ 11 mm, 1/500, ISO 200 4. f/5 @ 11 mm, 1/320, ISO 200 5. f/2.8 @ 16 mm, 1/200, ISO 200 The fire was supposedly started by a cigarette a gentleman threw outside but forgot to put out. A new church (nice and all, but can't hold a candle to the original) was built right behind the ruins. This is not just the second but the sixth (!) version of a church at this location. Two of the churches were consumed by fire (1860 and 1968). Complete history here. Thanks for looking.
