St Pancras church in the hear of Exeter sits right in the centre of a shopping centre. It’s built from Heavitree stone and is mostly 13th centuryn but with an 11th century font. It’s tiny, 46 x 16 feet, and is one of the oldest churches in the country with a chancel and nave.
As well as shops, it’s now surrounded by restaurants. I caught this i phone photo though the window of Comptoir Libanais. I’m not sure if the lady in the roof is real or just an illusion, maybe Paula will know, I’ve posted it for her Thursday special.

That’s such a clever, ethereal photo. It would make a perfect Christmas card.
Thanks Margaret, no skill involved just luck!
A really gorgeous photo, Gilly. The lady looks quite real to me. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia, she looks a bit naughty!
🙂 Bless you, Gilly, this is so clever 🙂
More luck than skill Paula 🙂
What a photo! Those lovely stripes of light. I hope the week provides you with their analogues (I thinks that’s the word I want)
It is a tiny church – I just paced it out in my head.
Tiny and filled with ghosts Meg 🙂 have a nice PP week!
The lighting is so well captured! Brilliant shot, Gilly. 🙂 love it!
It was a lucky one Amy, through a window and perhaps 20 feet away!
20 ft away and through a window, that makes the photo even more special! 🙂
It’s so pretty. 🙂 🙂 I had to look twice for the lady. We were at a concert given by a violin quartet in one of the newly restored churches in Tavira this evening and I was snap happy with light and shadows. Hugs, darlin!
Well I’m looking forward to seeing those photos, sounds like they will be dreamy, but how was the violin quartet? Have a lovely sunny Sunday honey, with hugs right back from G 🙂
Fascinating to watch in close up, Gilly. It was a free performance of about an hour. Long enough on those church benches 🙂 🙂 Thanks, darlin’. You too! Got a plan?
Nothing exciting, need to pop to town, hope to find time to do a bit more on my tote bag. You’ve reminded me of the lady in the Tavira church where we saw the Fado, she reserved the very best seats for the performance.
You are a clever lady! Love this 🙂
Honestly Jude no skill involved here, just luck!
This I absolutely love! I believe the lady on the side of this structure was put there and really gives a pause for thought in this night time image. Well done.
Hey Gilly .. great shot with that iPhone!
