The Tuesday Inspiration: Medieval construction

by Helen Hooker November. 09, 2010 3898 views

The weather has conspired against me in a big way today ?? all my plans today??s theme have been scuppered by the worst weather of the autumn so far with full blown Hollywood special effects rain and howling winds! As a result I??ve had to resort to my old favourite fall back for Tuesday Inspiration themes ?? Chichester Cathedral. I managed to sneak in there at lunchtime, just before the weekly concert started (luckily I work at the Cathedral school on a Tuesday) and caught this shot looking upwards into the north-west tower. I think it demonstrates the medieval architectural approach to today??s theme rather well, with its repeating arches and sweeping lines.

Today??s theme was set by yours truly. Last Tuesday??s theme was ??Broken??. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [photoblog.com].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stefan [photoblog.com] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.

I wouldn't care about the weather if I could get a shot like this inside. Beautiful light on the stonework and perfectly framed.

That ceiling is truly splendid in its delicate lines and the cross that is makes. I vaguely recall Chichester Cathedral many years ago.
