PhotoHunt: flags





Two views of the flags in Winchester Cathedral.  Can't you see them?  On the ground - flagstones.  The retroquire, the area behind the altar, contains the largest surviving expanse of 13th century tiles in the UK.  I thought you would probably have seen enough flags waving in the wind.  Besides, I've never been able to photograph one successfully.

As you read this, I will be making my way back to that part of the world, so I will have to pay my visits to you a little late this weekend.

  12. Architecture: c'est l'amour :-)

    The 13th century surviving tiles looks amazing and yeah it's hard sometimes to catch the flags in the wind.

    Excellent shots, A.
    Have a nice trip.

  13. One of the reasons I like old buildings, the history is in the stones they can talk if you just know how to listen to their story.
