It gives that impression Global, but what I think it is, is that it was a commercial
vehicle where the lights are placed higher than a cars lights so they give a false
impression of the position of the vehicle.

Can't say I agree what I am looking at is the vehicle that has changed - veered from the left =hand lane mounted the curb gone onto the median strip took his-her foot of the brake the light goes out as he goes back onto the road again.

know if that was the case. :wink: .

I was looking all the time and I think I should have noticed if something did mount the kerb or central area of the road :D

It is the inside of Ely Cathedral.

Seen from a low angle (as all of my photos are). :lol:

i wouldnt mind having a look in this place... its hard to take indoor shots like that, the colours are excellent... you didnt happen to take a close up of the roof did you?

" you didnt happen to take a close up of the roof did you?"

Do you mean the ceiling or the actual roof?

I didn't get any further into the Cathedral than you can see in the photo, I was not prepared to pay what they wanted for admission.

I can blow up a close up view of the ceiling as the original file is quite large. Here it is

It's just a blow up and cropped photo from a section of the original posted.
I had to turn it upside down as the ceiling was meant to be viewed from the alter
and not from where I was standing at the entrance. Quite simple really. :D

With my concession for being a pensioner they wanted over £6 for entry, and that
did not include certain parts of the Cathedral; where you had to pay extra. :roll:
Fortunately they don't make charges at all of them. Durham Cathedral is free, you
only pay if you want to climb to the top of the tower.

Commercialism and hypocracy at it's best

Isn't there something somewhere in the bible about kicking out the moneylenders?

Durham Cathedral is beautiful, Mr. Smith. I visited that once a few years
back. They asked for a donation but didn't insist, which I thought was
nice of them.

I love the close up of that ceiling. Gorgeous!! :D

What about when you attend a regular Sunday service or a funeral or wedding? Do you have to pay then?

Sensational ceiling.
They don't build like that nowadays.
Is the cathedral no longer in use?
I can't imagine it is, as otherwise people could simply go in and snap a picture as they waited for the service to begin.

I can sort of understand some small fee-but not 6 pounds-as I know when we were in Bendigo earlier this year, we visited a much smaller cathedral there and took some pics. It was all free, but there was a minder there, just standing back, watching. We spoke to him and he mentioned he was one of a team of volunteers. There is no way you could just leave a church or cathedral unattended, sorry to say, as these days there are so many vandals around.
Most churches just lock up when there is no service on.
So I suppose if people want a cathedral open out of hours, the church might have to pay staff to attend.

They have set times for visitors. No visitors allowed in during any services.
There are no charges for people attending services.

You should have gone to the other end of the Cathedral because in the photo you can see the roof is closer to the floor and you could get a better close up view.
You could have said I am a worshiper and I don't have to pay to worship in God's house and then gone to the other end where its closer to the ground and you. :lol: :lol:
