A Cathedral Walk

During my lunch (half) hour one day last week. 
I walked through the neighbouring Cathedral precincts. 
 luckily I had my phone with me. 
I shall have to try and take my camera next time!

Carlisle Cathedral- East elevation

The Fratery

Cathedral Entrance

THEN today I wondered through with my camera proper!
Did it make any differences?





Elvis is in the garden!

  4. I was impressed by the phone photos. I couldn't tell the difference but then I'm not a photographer! How do you get phone photos on to the net?

  6. The pictures are just great! Love them all.
    There's something about benches that appeals..... music or no music!
    Great place to visit.

  7. The very first picture caught my eye immediately...there's something about the veil of oddly glimmering light that entranced me. Lovely shots, either way...phone or camera...but still, the first is my favorite!

  17. ALL good shots, "true" camera or otherwise. I love old churches, cathedrals, etc. They just grab and hold onto my soul.

  18. Beautiful shots, especially the first one with the amazing light.

  19. Yes, it made a difference but I do love a good sunglare, no matter which camera it's from. Always overwhelmed with what you can see on any given day. Not so much here...at least not in the same order.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
