Wordless Wednesday ~ 24: Exquisite

 Southwark Cathedral



  1. It looks as though the sandstone facings have had a good cleanup.

  2. I can't agree more, that's exquisit and so well captured.

  3. Emm, nice one,I quite like the angle this is taken from.

  4. Woah! Massively Gorgeous!!! Beautiful shot..mega-beautiful!!

  5. Perfect! Love it!
    And thank you so much, Emm for your extremely interesting comments on my blog.
    I really appreciate them!
    Hope you're having a great day!
    Big hugs

  6. Looks awfully like the Southwark cathedral ... nice shot..

  7. I really love the decorative technique that is expressed on this wall of the cathedral--little shells (I guess?) in black rock. We saw similar touches on some other really old churches in other parts of London. Great picture!

  8. So elegant on the outside, I bet it's beautiful inside!

  9. Hi Emm! another wonderful building - such exquisite architectural detail!!!!

  10. I love the building contrasted with the new spring green leaves. Something permanent meets something that's ever-changing.

  11. Hi Emm! Westminster?

    Blogtrotter Two has a sunset cruise for you! Enjoy the cocktails and the views and have a great weekend!!

  12. Love, love, love this church. How beautiful!

  13. Thanks for all of your comments! This, of course, is the other side of the gorgeous Southwark Cathedral.

    @ JaPRA: It is beautiful! Thankfully not too unusual in the Kent area as I will hopefully show you sometime soon.

    @ John: It is looking very clean!

    @ Fullet: Thank you!

    @ Mike: It is a difficult building to capture, I must say! It is surrounded by buildings and I struggled to get that angle!

    @ Kiki: Thank you!!

    @ Xoán-Wahn: Thanks, thanks, thanks!

    @ Betty: It is a pleasure and thank you!

    @ Ash: How right you are! Well done.

    @ Kathy: Hmmm, do you know that I don't know if it was shell! I shall have to go stick my nose right up to the service and try tell.

    @ AVCr8teur: I believe it is indeed lovely inside and must make an effort to go see.

    @ Gena: I know! I am definitely living in the right country giving my love of old buildings.

    @ Miss Diarist: Thank you! Yes, I like the contrast too.

    @ Trotter: Hiya! No, nowhere near Westminster! It is Southwark Cathedral.

    @ Lauren: Me too!

    @ Laura: Thank you sweets!
