The Cathedral the Christ of the Light

On New Year's eve, I had an assignment to photograph this Cathedral in Lake Merritt (Oakland of course) that has been in construction since 2000. The place was supposed to be all lit up as a gift for the community. Adm came with me, and in attempt number one, we found a great spot to shoot from and met a very nice security guard named Al Green, but no lights from the Cathedral. I grabbed this pic:

For attempt number 2, I received a call from the Cathedral's PR guy who informed me that the lights were now working. Went back up on January 2 with a tripod and Ross's company to grab this pic:
