Image of a gothic portal with two doorways leading into the cathedral. There is a lamp post in the foreground with two men standing next to it conversing with each other. To the left of these figures there are several people seen entering and exiting the cathedral. The structure of the building appears to dissolve as one moves away from the doorway.
