View on black please!

 

I do love a good interior and church interiors are some of the best; they're just so full of detail! As much as I hate religion, they certainly know to produce great buildings! Saying that, you can also get some great interior shots in museums too!

 

This is St. Stephen's Basilica or Szent István-bazilika in Hungarian. It's one of the tallest buildings in Budapest (alongside the wonderful parliament building) and possibly the most ornate. You're allowed to take photos inside, although there isn't many good places to mount a GorillaPod. If you push past loads of people, you can happily attach your tripod to the top of the collection box. Not that I did this of course...

 

I wasn't going to put this photo up today, but it's Emyli's birthday today and she likes these type of shots, so this is dedicated to her. Happy birthday!

 

This is a detailed shot, so it looks much better large, on black. (Press L)

 

Edit: I've just realised that you can have testimonials on Flickr! I have none :(

 

No group graphics or large images in comments please.
