Another successful photo hunt

on

John getting a camera is a wonderful thing. Now it’s definitely not so much a case of us going somewhere and him watching Katherine while I shoot photos. We both get a chance to have fun.

Today we went to the Anglican Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in St. John’s (Newfoundland, Canada). We snuck in between matins and the 11am service and had a quick look around. We’d not been inside in almost ten years, so it was a real treat. john used to be a tour guide there, so we’ve seen some of the off-limits bit, but unfortunately have no pictures. We must see about reconnecting with some friendly guides this summer.

In the meanwhile, here’s some of what we saw today…

The Great West Window – a myriad of colours


Everything about a cathedral is above eye-level, which is, of course, the whole point.


The floor really ought to be more interesting…


I love the shot above. It’s a shame I didn’t have a tripod with me, as it’s a tad blurry. Must go back again….

    Those are just beautiful, Vicky! The first is my favourite. The textures and the contrasts are… I don’t know. They provoke contemplation.

    And I love arches!!! So much a symbol of the Goddess and the female aspect…….yet so important in a church where women are second class citizens. Irony…..ya gotta love it!
