Excellent shot here, Elizabeth.

What a pity the authorities didn't have a bit more care about those bollards, heh.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Ray!
I suppose there's a better way to keep people from driving up there...
Great framing here Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Richard!
Nice comp' Ell', as Ray says, shame the bollards aren't more sympathetic to the surroundings. But having had a completely unjustified parking ticket just behind this scene,I can tell you they are not sympathetic about anything!!! Now you have set me off!!! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Ray!!!
OH NO!!! I'M sympathetic... Tell me again... smile
i remember seeing pictures of the Black Gate before Elizabeth... but this is the first time that i have seen this majestic cathedral framed behind it... what a beautiful and delicate piece of architecture....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it striking, Peter! It was unexpected!

Full of charm isn't it Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Very much, Chris!
Did I ever tell you my grandson's name is Nicholas? Any church with his name is very special to me. smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I believe you have, Ginnie! Nicholas is such a wonderful name- with a wonderful history. So many amazing men...

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Bill... I expect a check any day now...

The spires looks to be model for some Space Odyssey ship. Looks a nice place to visit.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Aren't they amazing! It is a great city!
You found a great viewpoint here Elizabeth, I can tolerate the bollards but those yellow lines, urghhhh!!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Brian! I suppose it's one thing or another! smile
I like the different varieties of brick...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is great, lots of textures and colors!
