Mega Cool Super Church (and Technology)

Saturday I drove down to Happy Valley to pick up Graham following an overnight at his friend’s house. On the way there I saw a monstrous building and noted it was a church. On the way back home, we stopped so I could get a picture. I posted the first picture to Instagram (warning: link opens iTunes). In that picture, I included the sign as a point of reference but it somewhat eclipsed the gigantic church so I moved a few steps east and snapped another:

Although it looks impressive, I still felt like I hadn’t caught the majesty of the day and of the building, so I created a quick interactive panoramic with the most excellent 360 Panorama iPhone application. That turned out pretty well but I was still not satisfied.

This evening I pulled up Google maps to see what the church looked from the satellite view and the result is astounding:
