photoblog image Washington National Cathedral II

Washington National Cathedral II

Another photo from inside Washington National Cathedral. I think I like this one for the reflections in the floor more than anything else. Overall a beautiful building. I'd always wanted to visit it since I first saw it in a West Wing episode!

The light gives the whole cathedral (the carvings especially) such a magnificent feel. Lovely shot Iain.

Oh Wow! When I saw yesterday's picture I was hoping you had managed to get a close up of the wonderful carvings I could see .. and here it is smile

The light from the upper window gives a truly mystical feel to the picture, so right for a place of worship.

The floor is amazingly shiny, something we aren't used to seeing in our cathedrals and churches, which often have tiled floors. Is the floor marble?
Great picture, I like especially a blueish background and reflections in shiny floor... Well balanced and captured.
Yea, big West Wing fan.

In a scene set in a church, President Bartlet screams "Have I displeased you, you feckless thug?" and "to hell with our punishments! To hell with you!"

Officials at Washington DC's National Cathedral have banned location filming after they spotted Martin Sheen's presidential character on The West Wing put a cigarette out on their floor.

Dobkin says, "The West Wing had filmed there, and Martin Sheen had put a cigarette out on the floor and walked out, and it was on the show.

"They were really upset about it, so they were not allowing filming anymore."
