St Philip’s York Street Anglican Church…

by on Sep.08, 2011, under Life, Photography

On a recent walk in the city at night I took some images inside a church I’d been meaning to visit – St Philip’s, York Street Anglican (which is at the end of York st in the city just as you come of the Sydney Harbour Bridge).

This was a really very beautiful building inside and at night with all the lights on inside everything was golden honey coloured. The warm light coloured wooden pews and floors, the light sandstone walls and pillars, the wooden ceiling and the creamy and light brown tiles on the floor already gave the whole ambience a very light honey coloured feel but the additional warm lighting just made it all glow like the whole room was swimming in golden honey.

Note: These images (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

I still had to do an image in monochrome however 🙂

    I love this Church. We had our 50th anniversary vows renewed here three years ago. Doreen and Joe, the parish priest performed a very beautiful vow renewal for us. We made long time and forever friends, Chris and Kathleen Tregidgo, who are parishioners at St. Phillips.
    Such a beautiful church and such wonderful people who attend.
    Thank you for these pictures.
    Sincerely, Geri and Bob Hager
