Photographer's Note

This is the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C. This is the largest Roman Catholic church in the Western Hemisphere, and was dedicated in 1959. Its architecture is mix of Romanesque and Byzantine styles. The Great Upper Church boasts fantastic mosaics, stained glass windows and individual chapels, and the lower level Crypt Church is smaller and darker, but equally impressive in atmosphere and ornamentation.
