Photographer's Note

This is a view from Centrepoint Tower of St Mary's Cathedral and the Archibald Fountain in Hyde Park. St Mary's is Sydney's largest Catholic Cathedral. Built in the Gothic style in 1865 (after the original St Mary's was burnt down), its two front spires were completed between 1998 and 2000. It was visited by Pope John Paul II in 1986 and 1995 and by Pope Benedict XVI in 2008. In 2010 Australia's first saint, St Mary MacKillop of the Cross was canonised in Rome and her statue erected at the entrance to the cathedral.

My old "friend" Cardinal Pell is the present Archbishop of Sydney. A nice way of explaining this is that I don't know him personally but don't agree with his world view.
