This blog is to showcase some of the photo's I've taken, the pictures can be from my archive of many years or taken recently. They are from where I live and the various places I have been. I hope Enjoy my work and come back to visit again
One of the many things I love about blogging is that it sends you on little journeys, like me not knowing what a preaching cross was and going to Google to find out about it. If I ever saw one of these before I was 25 years old (the age I left England) I don't remember it. It's only with age that I have loved learning about these things, and so Bill I want to thank you for sending me on my journey. I thoroughly enjoyed this post and the one of the church. I have this love of learning now and it is why I enjoy visiting blogs such as yours. Better late than never i suppose, the journeying :)
Let you into a secrete, I never knew either till a few years ago. A village near me has three of them in various states. Might do a blog on them for a change
Looks so pretty with the sunny spells.Wish you a fine Weekend, Heidrun
It does and I was lucky that day as the rain held off
Wow - 13th century! I'd love to visit your country and see all the ancient buildings.
There are even crosses older than that around as well
Nice photo, Bill!
Hari OMthe composition of this is lovely, but there is no doubt that the low winter light adds a certain ambience!! YAM xx
Yes it does but also causes me grief at times taking photos
how lovely iy looks in the sunshine
Got to admit it did Gerald
Thank you very much Marlys
Hello, BillI must confess to having to look up the meaning of "preaching cross". Thank you introducing me to something "new" from the 13th century, as well as sharing it at Sunlit Sunday. The setting is one I would enjoy visiting and can imagine lingering there for awhile. I must pop over the ocean again . . .-Karen
Please do we love having you all over here. I must write a blog on the preaching crosses I have come across
lovely photo with sun and shadows
Thanks you Linda
Beautiful! Love "traveling" to places I've never been .. thank you!
That is the name of the game in Blogging, I do the same
Beautiful setting. I bet it's gorgeous in the summer when the trees are full.
You know I would think it is, must have a look when I can
A calming scene for sure.
Yes it eludes peace
Beautiful picture with wonderfully long shadows! Hoping you are having a grand day! Cathy
Yes id DIY is called haveing a grand day
There's a lot of green there still!
Usually is in the UK even through winter
I enjoy reading bits of medieval history and what fun to see a preaching cross photo! The sunshine is lovely, too.
I enjoy finding it, I also like finding preaching crosses. Thanks for dropping by
Re your comment at «Louis'» inSPIREd Sunday post and the use of the HDR for the interior shots: «Louis» agrees with you. He's done it twice now: first time and last - both at the same time! :-)
Hope I did not offend you with what I said, it looked like a wonderful place to spend time
I remember the sun!
So do I and it's coming up at the moment
A very interesting photo of this 'preaching cross' and I will have to look it up too, as I've never heard of one before. Very unique. I'm off to do that and to see your other blogpost. Have a good week.
They are not unique in the UK though some are in better condition than others
