Dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral, London and Henry Moore

St Paul's Cathedral

Christopher Wren designed the magnificent St Paul’s Cathedral which was completed on his 76th birthday in 1708.  The famous dome was the third design submitted by Wren and is an example of late renaissance style architecture. If it were not for the great fire of London in 1666, Wren my not have had his chance to design one of Britain’s greatest buildings.

Interestingly, many famous people have memorials inside St. Paul’s. Henry Moore is one such artist. I took this shot of one of Moore’s pieces in a sculpture park somewhere near the M1 in about 2003. The park has a number of fascinating sculpures by Moore and others.
