Old acquaintances

By mrswoolybill
I have photographed these characters several times before, but my current kit hadn't been formally introduced to them...
This is a detail from the back of the Storyteller's Chair, aka Kathedra, below Prebends Bridge in Durham. The front is a simple stone seat. The back is a swirling mass of demons and grotesques. The chair stands for the sanctuary of the Cathedral, standing firm against the chaos of the world outside.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Excellent view point and crop, Moira.

"Havn't seen her with that kit before."

We all have our personal demons, when you look round the back...

This really is one for the imagination to play with. Ergo...

I admitted my age with the comment - you didn't need to confirm yours with your reply.Wink The normal response is along the lines of, 'Yes, I remember mum telling me about them...'

Menace and fear portrayed very nicely Moira. It's surprising just how
many demons and evil spirits adorn the walls and grounds of our cathedrals and churches.
They may, or may not, work as deterrents but they do make fascinating subjects for photographers.

Thanks again folks, and thanks Leo for the UA!
Friendship takes many different forms. These characters have been stuck together for a long time, they need to get along...

"I don't know about you dear but I can't help feeling that we would be so much more animated if that fool had used latex!"
Sorry Moira but I keep looking at this and each time it makes me think of 'Spitting Image' ! Oh happy days!

It's also a superb image!

Thanks Graham. And I see these as much too characterful to be inanimate.
