Random Village Churches

We were a little early for our holiday cottage, so followed a sign to a small village church. These are often gorgeous buildings, although, like this example, unfortunately often locked up. Then there are also the beautiful vicarages, impressive houses that suggest that there was a fair bit of money around to build and maintain these. Different days clearly. The light again attracted me to shoot the pictures, using the SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm WR lens in the main, but also the SMC Pentax-DA 10-17mm Fisheye Zoom where the available space was very cramped. This has bent everything a bit, but it is different. I could have attempted to correct the fisheye effect, but I prefer it just as it is.
