Black and White Sunday

The them for Paula’s black and white Sunday this week is ‘through’. The possibilities are endless aren’t they? I love taking photos through garden gates and out of windows, but the view also has to work in monochrome. Hence, I’ve chosen a building, not any old building but Chichester cathedral.

So there we are, a view through the cloisters, up through the vaults, through a pretty gate and through from outside to in.

In Between

Chichester cathedral has a beautiful metal screen ,between it and the  vaults, the treasure awaits, some of the Cathedral’s silver!

Caught between two worlds, almost as if an invisible sci-fi force field is wrapped around the people inside.

A flower for two bees to share between them.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details

This week’s photo challenge is guest hosted by Christopher Martin.

Lost in the Details. This challenge is about getting lost in the details. Once you’ve found a subject you want to photograph, challenge yourself to work a little further into the scene.

I’m not totally sure I understand what we are being asked to do this week, but hey here goes anyway! These photos were taken at Chichester Cathedral in West Sussex and I find the detail fascinating, if you click on them you should be able to zoom in. Hope you enjoy.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

There are some very clever tips at the Daily Post today http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2012/11/02/weekly-photo-challenge-geometry/

Now, I’m sure the geometry was accurate in these three very old cathedrals but sadly craning my neck and holding a camera still and straight has made them look a touch wonky! Here is Gloucester cathedral.

and last, the best of all is Exeter
