Photographer's Note

The problem with that photo was that Cathedral was completely surrounded by scaffoldings - due to the renovation works. (You can see a bit of it in the right)

I've been walking around it trying to find a good place to make a photo. I finally managed to see enough of cathedral without any workers or machines in the foreground.

St Paul's Cathedral is situated where old gothic cathedral used to be. During a great fire it was almost completely destroyed and new cathedral was built. Cathedral was a symbol of London during Second World War when it was standing untouched surrounded by ruins, fires and explosions. The biggest element is of course the dome. Only the dome in Rome (St Peter's Church) is bigger. Inside - the dome is covered with frescos made by Thornhill.
