After a few weeks of being out and about exploring quite a lot, a spell closer to home means I am running out of 'exciting' photos. Still, there is value in documenting the ordinary local scenes, I suppose. On the way back from the shops in Shipley, I took a detour through Crowgill Park. I rarely walk through there; there's not a lot to see apart from a bowling green and the war memorial, though there was a nice little patch of purple crocuses.
The parish church of St Paul's looks huge from this angle. It sits in a fairly large graveyard and makes a nice green oasis in this part of town.
I have passed the church's main gates many times and never before noticed this carved figure on one of the gateposts. I suppose it might be St Paul himself - who knows? He has a beard to rival Sir Titus Salt, that much is clear.
These are beautifully takenReplyDelete
Jenny, even your close to home images are interesting to see. The parish church is a wonderful photo subject! And, I disagree that you are running out of exciting places to take photos. Seeing the ordinary things where others live is always interesting to myself and sure many others.ReplyDelete
That is a beautiful church.ReplyDelete
Oh, the lovely crocuses (croci?)ReplyDelete
"Ordinary" is in the eye of the beholder. But I know what you mean. Anyway, these are exotic and beautiful to me. Thanks.ReplyDelete
P.S. I paint, so I'm always thinking, what can I do differently. Sometimes it can be the same old same old subject matter, but done in another way. So I do know what you mean. On the other hand the viewer of your work, i.e. me, can find new stuff in subjects you may find old.ReplyDelete
Well, enough said, and not clearly. But thank you, and keep after it!
