Ghiberti doors, exact copy of famous 15th C origls, at Grace Cathedral!

Ghiberti doors, exact copy of famous 15th C orig'ls, at Grace Cathedral!

San Francisco, California

These are the ones that took 27 years to do (10 panels) in the new 3-dimensional perspective
on doors Michelangelo described as the "Gates of Paradise" when he saw them at the Florence
Cathedral Baptistery.  I have photos of the ones standing in Florence, though those too are copies,
after the originals were damaged in the high flood of 1966 and now kept protected in a museum.

Canon EOS 350D
1/125s f/5.0 at 70.0mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

I saw these on one of my City Walks. I love those walks, they provide so much information, but I find there isn't enough time for photography. I have all these places I want to go back, and explore from a photographic perspective.

PS: lovely light in this photo.
