A flying visit to Wells

On Monday I had 15 minutes to peep inside Well’s Cathedral, my first visit since I was 11 years old. Back then I was too young to really appreciate it, but I do remember enjoying it, especially the moat in the Bishop’s Palace garden.

Of course I stayed just at little longer, I was mesmerised by the light, the stained glass and we also lit a candle for my friends sister Diane, in America who sadly died last week.

Here are just a few pictures of this beautiful place.

Becky knows Wells far better then I do and her post is full of the information that mine lacks.

Returning to Wells for an ecclesiastical stroll

For Lindy and all the Shope family who sadly lost a very special sister.

My last October squares

I haven’t posted squares every day, but I did gather together¬† more than I’ve posted so here are my last four.

I’m sure I’m not alone in looking forward to Becky’s next square challenge, many thanks lovely lady!

 

Layers through the lens

Amy has a brilliant challenge this week. She has shared photos of Plitvice in Croatia, a place that’s been on my radar for a while. I’d love to see the waterfalls that have inspired Amy’s theme of layers for this weeks Lens Artist challenge.

My pics are from Florence, a glorious city with layers of history and jaw dropping art.

Amy and the team would love to see your interpretation of Layers if you’d like to join in

Pointy Art

My hope for today is to relax and catch up with some blogging, as I’ve had a busy week. Does anyone else feel like life in general is getting busier? I’ve toyed with the idea recently of giving up blogging, but I would miss so many people in this magical world. I could try posting twice a week, perhaps that’s the answer.

But then there are so many challenges that are hard to resist, like Becky’s March Squares! There’s lots of pointy sculpture in Barcelona, the one above is at the Park Joan Miro.

 

 

Around Cezanne’s Neighborhood

I’d wanted to check out Cezanne’s neighbourhood for ages and last year I finally made it to Aix, on a bus from Marseilles.

I’m fire fighting at the moment so only have time to post a gallery.

But I hope you like it anyway.
If you haven’t seen them, Tina has beautiful photos taken of Seabrook Island, South Carolina for her challenge of ‘Neighborhood’.
