For my last photo from my historic Honolulu building series, I feature what looks like a relatively modern cathedral. Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew, commonly known as St. Andrew’s Cathedral, is a cathedral of the Episcopal Church. Originally, starting as a seat of the Anglican Church in Hawaii.
The building is older than it looks. The cornerstone was laid in 1867. It wasn’t until 1958 that the great west window was completed. This floor-to-eave stained glass design is what gives the cathedral its modern appearance.
With my limited 35mm field of view, I opted to include the dramatic fountain and reflecting pool from the front of the property. The structure, framed by the trees, has a balanced appearance in the warm late afternoon light.
