Sketching The Past.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and thank you very much indeed for your kind comments and votes on my run of Rochester images.
And now, stepping outside of the Cathedral, a couple of lovely ladies pursuing their hobby back in the summer and sketching the outer walls and frontage of the Cathedral. It's not often that I've seen this natural art form taking place their, it's usually people with big black boxes in front of their faces or holding up mobile phones. And the occasional tablet of course. Sad

All the best to all, soon be black FridayGrin

A very civilised way of recording an image. Here's wishing strength to their pencils.

I've just noticed the arm-rest in the foreground. So that's what the hole is for Smile

Excellent shot John and shows what's out there on the street.

The mod I have toned down the street behind and brought up the shadows to the left. Hope you like these minor changes.

Wish I could draw - I enjoy Pictionary because I'm so bad at drawing.
Looks such a pleasant thing to do on a sunny day.

drawing sketches is great fun as long as you are fully aware that it has nothing to do with actual art
