What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Sixteen years ago it was York Minster, bathed in light by the French artist Patrice Warrener.

Two projectors were used to illuminate the west front of the Minster, creating a design called the ‘Heart of Yorkshire’, part of a project to ‘breathe new life into the city centre in ways that are both sympathetic to our treasured heritage and reflective of leading-edge contemporary art’ (according to a member of the City of York Council at the time).
