Calasiao, Cathedral Interior
"Interior of a smaller Catholic Church toward San Carlos from Binmale. GALA ANACO A-ALAGDENTACA" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Interior: Calasiao Cathedral. After being granted permission, Hill ascended the choir loft for this photograph. 'Whew!' he wrote: 'Beat St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. In very excellent repair. Built in 1547. The high ceiling was covered with mud dauber nests and the swallows were flying around inside. There were prayer candles burning and a little old lady in black with a white lace handkerchief atop her head was kneeling at the center altar. The little lady was perfectly still. The illumination was excellent. Very even, though quite dim. As long as it's even, the actual quantity of light is not too important." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
