A Field of Edsels

There is a field of Edsels located in Sacramento where there are probably over 100 or more Edsels, two door sedans, four door, convertibles, station wagons.  Something you just don't see everyday.

St. John The Baptist Cathedral, Fresno, CA

Wikipedia states, "Saint John the Baptist Cathedral is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fresno, located at 2814 Mariposa Street, in Fresno, California. The parish was established in 1882."  This church building was officially opened in 1902.   The Cathedral's website has the title of St. John's Cathedral.   It was hard for me to be able to decide what I was going to shoot first. Just about every inch has some form of painting or beautiful architecture adorning the Cathedral. Everyone was so gracious and allowed me shoot just about anywhere I wanted to.  Mankind can achieve great things when wanting to praise God and to show the glory of God. This is a fine example through the architecture, statues, and painting.

Grace Cathedral, San Francisco, CA

 Grace Cathedral is an example of what man can do when inspired by God. Wikipedia writes, "In the early 1920s, the railroad baron and banker Charles Crocker donated his Nob Hill property for a cathedral. Designed in French Gothic style by Lewis Hobart, construction on the cathedral began in 1928. When it was finally completed in 1964, it was the third largest Episcopal cathedral in United States."   The architecture is incredible to me.  It is open during the day and you may enter in and walk through its massive spaces or you can pay for an official tour provided by a docent.  The Cathedral was kind enough to allow Robin and I in, allowing us to use our tripod and go to places normally not available to the general public.    During our time there the organist was playing the organ through the massive pipes in the Cathedral.  This added to the already impressive atmosphere.  Grace Cathedral is made of Reinforced concrete  that has been pounded to look as if it were made of stone.   It is well worth your while to see this impressive Cathedral.
