St. George's Chapel
This photo has a fun story attached to it. This was taken during our surprise trip to London last year. My family was set to go to Tokyo, thanks to some free travel vouchers and some outrageously low fares, and the tsunami hit three days prior to our departure. We quickly reconfigured our travel and wound up having a really great week in London instead.
While visiting Windsor Castle we stopped in St. George's Chapel on the castle grounds. If you have never visited it, it is one of the most stunning examples of late Gothic English architecture I've ever seen. Problem is, they don't allow photographs in the chapel. Bummer.
So how did I get this photo, you ask? By sitting down on a bench, setting my lens to its widest setting, balancing the camera on my belly, and snapping this one shot. As luck would have it, it turned out to be one of my favorite photos from that trip.
The moral of the story? Fight the power! Snap surreptitiously!
