Worship Seeking Angels on a Saturday

On Saturday I spend the afternoon with my chin pointing skyward in search of angels and other stony beings that peer out from the high places of St Paul's Cathedral.



They are a silent and eerie bunch to hang around with.



Yet, I am in awe of their sinister beauty.




"Sir Christopher Wren said; 'I am going to dine with some men. If anybody calls, tell them that I am designing St Paul's"




We actually ventured into the cathedral for the 1st time. It is a magnificent space that has been sympathetically lit to moving effect. Sadly, photography is prohibited so I cannot show you how gorgeous it is. I suggest you visit sometime!



This is a view that I take in everyday on my way to work. It never fails to move me.

  2. ahh such beautiful photography. But it's not the angels you should be looking for on cathedral crevices, it's the grotesques and monsters that are the most interesting. Gargoyles and monsters in risque positions hiding in the corners and alcoves. :D (LOL Sorry about that, i study this in my degree. :P)

    Are you walking down watling street?

  4. My dear,

    I have monsters and demons and gargoyles a plenty residing within the eaves of my mind. I sought solace and respite among angels just for a little while.

    One of the places that everyone should see before they die. Another place to see is the view of the millennium bridge from the Tate Gallery at night and how it feeds itself to St.Pauls.

  14. This cathedral looks absolutely beautiful - I always love doing the stone work and especially thinking HOW much work such artistry would have taken hundreds of years ago with no power tools... it's always amazing.

    You look gorgeous, my dear! Red suits you so well!
