Basilica of St. Mary

This photo started out in color but on a whim I converted it to a fairly high contrast black and white photo. The light was certainly marginal and I think the B&W turns the photo into a better study of the impressive architecture of this basilica, which is located on the west side of downtown Minneapolis.

On a technical note, this is hand-held at 1/10 sec with a non-image stabilized lens. I teach my photography students that it is unwise to shoot below 1/60 of a second without a tripod, but I guess it is OK to test the limits once and a while.
