To start my afternoon in Liverpool, I visited its Anglican Cathedral to see the Pentecost Doves.
You see above the tiers of doves, illuminated in blue light, suspended from the cathedral ceiling.
The cathedral’s website describes the exhibition in the following words:
“The mass participation art installation, created by renowned sculptor and artist Peter Walker, will feature over 15,000 paper doves suspended in the cathedral.”
“The installation, which is accompanied by a soundscape from composer David Harper, was originally scheduled to open last May but was postponed due to the pandemic.”
“However, before lockdown, visitors to the cathedral, along with local school children and community groups were invited to write messages of peace, hope and love onto thousands of paper doves.”
The source for this description is from the following publicity produced by/for the cathedral. https://www.liverpoolcathedral.org.uk/43/section.aspx/37/peace_doves_artwork_to_be_
In the image above, individual paper doves can be seen more clearly.
The colour of the lighting from above the doves is varied and some of the colours are shown above and below.
I conclude today’s post with a photo of the doves illuminated in blue light. For all the posts in this series I used my Fujifilm X-T4 26 MP mirrorless cropped sensor camera. For the photos of the doves I used a Fujinon 16-55 f/2.8 lens.
EXIF data were: 1/5 secs at f/5.6 and 16 mm. The ISO was 1600 and the image was tripod mounted
