St Paul’s Cathedral, but not the Dome

When we think about St Paul’s Cathedral, we usually think about the Dome, but when I am returning to Cannon Street Station in the evening, the Dome isn’t the view of St Paul’s that I can see. Instead, I can see the tower on the south west front, pictured above, which has a clock face set into it.

Depending upon weather conditions, the BT Tower, which is much further west, is visible behind this south west tower of St Paul’s. I would like a picture where the BT Tower is obscured, but so far haven’t had a camera on me on a day when the weather conditions obscure the BT Tower without making photography of St Paul’s from Cannon Street impossible as well.

For some more conventional pictures of St Paul’s, including the famous Dome, visit my website, where you will find some night shots (what else 🙂 ) at St Paul’s Cathedral Pictures, October 7th, 2005.
