  3. Mark,

    Beautiful pictures and blog. I love old churches and parish history books.

    Is there a history pictoral book of the archdiocese of St. Louis that I can purchase somewhere? Alot of dioceses produce 100 or 150th anniversary history books with lots of old pictures. Does such a book exist? Thanks so much!

  4. Reply not from Mark, but there is such a book ("Archdiocese of St. Louis: Three Centuries of Catholicism 1700-2000," ISBN 2-7468-0353-4). You can find it on the Amazon site through various sellers.

  5. What lens(es) were you using? They must've been fast!

  6. Jeff,

    I am fortunate to have recently received a Nikon D40, which has a nice, low-noise sensor.

    In these photos, I used the D40's kit lens, which when zoomed out only goes to f/5.6. I used walls and columns to steady the camera, and set the ISO to 1600 or 3200. I did strong noise reduction in post processing.
