A solitary candle

2010.08.26

While I was in Chichester this afternoon I decided to take my camera and new 30mm lens for a stroll around the Cathedral to try and get a feel for its capabilities. I received the usual “Not you again?!” comment from one of the Vergers, who are used to me popping armed with a camera, but that didn’t deter me. This was my favourite shot – one of the prayer candles lit by visitors in front of the high altar. The colours behind are from the vivid altar tapestry which was designed by John Piper for the Cathedral in 1966.

revenant I can see where you were going with this.

Vergers are their own punishment, I find.

Ryana The way you've made this picture, the choice of the angle, your choice of aperture, the colorful background, ... everything fascinates me. ;)
