"Cathedral of Christ the King" is a Roman Catholic Church in Hamilton, Ontario Canada. The Cathedral was consecrated on 19TH December 1933 as William Russell Souter (architect) designed Cathedral of Christ the King during 1931-3 and Joseph Pigott was a construction giant who controlled the family business which also build the City Hall, the Pigott Building, Copps Coliseum and others.
This is the seat of the Bishop of the Diocese of Hamilton, and the cathedral of the Diocese of Hamilton. The cathedral contains the CATHEDRA (Bishop's Chair.) The south side of the bell tower, is the cornerstone blessed by Bishop McNally, builder of the Cathedral and fifth bishop of the diocese. It is a stone excavated from the Roman Catacombs to symbolize the cathedral's unity with the ancient Christian church, the first generation after Christ.
To start off I used the Hoya F72 filter, having camera resting on the SILK able 300 dx tripod and fired the camera with the Pentax Remote Cable-Release.
