Beautiful details. Beautiful shot. Is he looking towards the entrance, to see who is coming in?
Love the carvings in the wall.
Bill Phillips: He looks rather disapproving and not very happy.
I really like the way he appears to be sticking his neck out!
Bill Phillips: He must have a stiff neck after all these years E!
Mmmmm who goes here ...what do you want
Bill Phillips: He doesn't look very welcoming
He looks a bit sad Bill... i guess he's tired of hanging around all of those years... i love the detailed carving in the stone beside him....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Chris would correct me if I am wrong but I think it is Norman

You really have been out & about haven't you. This is just the sort of gorgeous detail that would catch my own eye if I was there

Never been to Ely. Not my sort of countryside out around and about it. This is a fine bit of masonry as are the stones to the right.
Bill Phillips: The Cathedral is magnificent and Ely is a nice place to have a wander around

I love this face and the way it is peering around the door frame. A likey for me.
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Mary
But a good one,Bill.
Bill Phillips: Cheers Frank
A find detailed Structure Bill!
Bill Phillips: The quality of the workmanship in buildings like this is amazing Ronky
He looks as if he has been there for a long, long time and is not too happy about it. You've captured the textures beautifully, Bill. Will we be seeing more of Ely Cathedral?
Bill Phillips: Probably not this was a leftover from my last visit!

terrific carving
Bill Phillips: I agree comrade
When we lived in St.Ives (Cambs.) we were only a short drive from Ely and used to visit once or twice a year, I must admit I do miss that now, the cathedral, as you say, is magnificent.
Bill Phillips: It is a gem Brian
Wonderful carving Bill!
Bill Phillips: It certainly is Richard
Bearing all that weight for all those years is taking its toll
Bill Phillips: It would be hard to stay cheerful Martin
The living stone, looks as if he feels the burden of the weight carried smile Good treatment
Bill Phillips: Weiged down by the years John
Not a happy looking soul, is he? smile
Bill Phillips: Not at all. Mind you he's got a lot on his mind

Bill Phillips: Thank you Philine. At least I was right about it being Norman
This is how I feel when I see another wet day!!
Bill Phillips: It has actually been nice here today!
