  1. Beautiful. 1) How can you tell which individual photos are most popular? 2) I love the mosaic head from the Cathedral. Do you remember where it is? I'm a parishioner, but don't think I've noticed that one (maybe not surprising, considering the sheer number of images).

  2. Anon,

    The photo rankings come from Flickr, which has its own rating system. That is why most likely the mosaic chairs are on the list.

  3. The mosaic of the angel is located up in the north end of the side-aisle outside of All Souls Chapel.
