York Minster

York Minster is one of the largest places of worship in Europe.  The Minster was built over a period of 250 years, between 1220 and 1472 and, at the time, was at the forefront of gothic architecture.  Like Notre Dame in Paris, York minster suffered a serious fire in 1984 which was apparently caused by a bolt of lightning, resulting in £2.25m worth of damage.  The project to restore the Minster to its former glory was completed one year ahead of schedule in 1988.

Liverpool From The Mersey

A number of shots of Liverpool taken whilst waiting for the ferry to depart for the Isle of Man in January 18.  The weather was quite dramatic with low level fog covering the Mersey for a short period until the sun broke through and the fog slowly dissipated.

The Birds of Notre Dame

…or, to be more precise, the ‘House Sparrows of Notre Dame’. These shots were taken during my first visit to Paris a couple of weeks ago. It appears that the bird feeder is a resident attraction adjacent to the cathedral. He certainly drew the crowds (some of the backgrounds are quite distracting, I’m afraid) and it made a pleasant change from photographing the customary but nevertheless enjoyable Paris landmarks which I will, of course, post in due course.

Tewkesbury Abbey

Whilst visiting family in the area primarily for a Sunday Roast, it seemed rude not to pop into Tewkesbury Abbey for a quick visit.  Result?  Stunningly pretty and more importantly for a nominal fee photography is allowed!  The following are just a flavour of the many I took during the relatively short but enjoyable visit.  Lessons learnt?  Remember to carry my tripod!  Enjoy.Tewkesbury Tewkesbury © [John Mallaney] and [jdmallaney In The Frame], [2012].
