During my recent trip to Des Moines, I was fortunate to secure a couple of hours of private access to the Basilica of St. John. I enjoy photographing places of worship, so this was a real treat. In fact, I have now visited 247 places of worship!
When I visit such a location, I always offer to share any photographs I capture with the church. The church can then use the full resolution files for any purpose they wish--for no charge. So, I strive to do my best in presenting the church in the images.
Here are some of the pictures from my visit:
