Cherabims ?

By barbarahirst
Yesterday I stumbled upon the Wakefield Cathedral.
What an amazing building. It had the standard superb glass windows etc. But it had a really lived in feel with all sorts of modern additions.. Sadly my camera skills wern't up to the occasion But will definately be going back with a different lens !

A very big thankyou to Chris (SlowSong) , Adrian (Adrian_Reynold) and Patti (PattiW) for their much appreciated user awards for my Tangled Swan

Lovely image Barbara, wonderful colours, very well captured, I know how difficult it is to take photo's in church buildings, very well done.

They look like they are sharing an amazing secret! A tad more light or a tripod and that focus would have been perfect. They are hard places to shoot.

This is so funny. What are they sharing? A comic, or that magazine they found hidden in Uncle George's bathroom? And are they really playing footsie?

Well they are cheeky little pair of cherabims for sure! Looks as if they are planning some mischief! Maybe just a touch of levels would brighten it a touch a make it sing out.

Great places for finding unusual things to shoot a wee tad more light would have helped you non the less interesting one with unusual colours ....Awards for the swan were well deserved Barbara it was a cracking shot click

Well captured under awkward circumstances. These two were not painted up to Renaissance standards but are fun images!

Difficul task carried out well but agree that to lighten it a tad would make a big difference.

What a dear little pair of carvings. It sounds a wonderful place, Barbara. Interesting that the cherubim on the right looks as though she (?) is wearing specs Wink I think they know something we dont..... Look forward to some more of your shots from the Cathedral.

Wonderful scene of the cherub-like figures sharing a moment Barbara,
well captured, fascinating symbolism, wonder why one is, sort of kicking the other, and if the red wing denotes the mischief in him/her?

I was in the centre of Wakefield yesterday, wish I'd known you were there, we could have met up - and had drink to celebrate my birthday! Wink Can't say I'd seen these, must pop in and take a look around. Well seen Barbs Smile
