Brisbane’s St James

When I realised that the bus I was waiting for was only going to come after 30 minutes, I decided to take a walk along the streets of Brisbane city, and came across this cathedral.

An old lady saw me taking pictures of the building, and asked if I would like to go in.

“Can I?”

“Of course! It’s for everyone.” She replied with a kind smile.

Inside, I was met with more kind hospitality when I asked if I could take pictures.

“Sure you can,” the gentleman said warmly, “just not during the service.”

And while roaming around the interior of the cathedral, admiring the stained glass and high ceilings, I was also treated to the pure harmonies of the choir practicing with a live string ensemble. What a beautiful experience.
