A charming shot of a very well known place. This street, I think it's called Vicars Close, is wider at one end than the other to make it seem longer and therefore more aesthetically pleasing
Bill Phillips: It is also claimed to be the oldest intact residential street in Europe. The widening is a clever touch

An authentic medieval street almost unspoilt. The black and white gives it a ancient feel
Bill Phillips: It is a gem Elisabeth as is the cathedral

Yes, I recall -and a fine image with the Cathedral in the background on a sunny day -I like the old pavement. Mostly I cannot listen to the videos -but in this case I don't miss it -Wells is only my Cathedral Wells!
Bill Phillips: smile It is the most wonderful place Philine.

Is this Redditch Bill?
Bill Phillips: Astwood bank, just down from the Co-op Chad
Like the treatment in B&W Bill now this place well, live not far away.
Great song to go with it.
Bill Phillips: Lucky you. I hadn't been to Wells for a long time and then went twice in a matter of weeks last year!

Could light and no passers-by, an opportunity you took full advantage of Bill. Looks great.
Bill Phillips: If you look carefully there are a couple of figures under the arch!

Excellent that you gave prominence to those lovely cobblestones, Bill.

What an excellent, stark, contrasting, black and white, Bill. Excellent!

Ooooh, this is very good Bill, really love the cobbled street smile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Linda, delighted you like it
This really is the best B.& W.I have seen from you Bill, everything is just right, especially the composition, and a great lack of people.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Brian you have made my day

Vicar's Close, I believe. Looks like the sort of place where you get Hovis bread straight from th'oven smile
Bill Phillips: It is indeed. Wonderful place isn't it?
Interesting treatment, Bill - works well.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Tom

Excellent picture.

PS: these cricket guys have me wondering with all these low scores in test cricket.
Bill Phillips: England are all out now for 140 odd! This match is a bit of a farce. They are blaming it on DRS, giving all these LBWs!
