Saint Giles, Cheadle, Staffs.

Back to more serious subjects after "me" on Friday and the sheep jokes that were offered in return. Thanks, I enjoyed them all.

Some very kind things were said about my collages of this church recently and later on I might put up individual photos from that set as has been suggested.

In the meantime this is a hand held shot taken of the main body of the church looking towards the altar and rood screen. It is not one of my best, but as you can see, even with the lights on, it is still fairly dimly lit.

I will move on to a different subject tomorrow and probably throw in a bit of mono as well during the week.

The way you have presented St. Giles is warm and inviting, Brian. I should know since I grew up in churches as a preacher's kid!
Brian Walbey: There was an elderly chap in the church at prayer and afterwards he spoke to us for a long time and told us lots about the church. It was a really pleasant few miniutes Ginnie.

I am eager to see what you have in mind.
Brian, this is a wonderful shot, the light is so great and I love the serenity in this one...you did a nice job here.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely quiet church Astrid, with all that wonderful decoration I showed a few weeks back.
It is a beautiful church Brian and you have done a really good job here in difficult conditions.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I suppose in reality one should use a tripod but a) I didn't have it with me and b) I hate using them anyway.
This is beautiful Brian. The dark colour tones and the lighting create a serene atmosphere. I like it.
Brian Walbey: It was very "reverend" in this church if you know what I mean Richard. Thanks for your comment.
A fine looking church Brian, well held.
Brian Walbey: THanks Les, yes it is a lovely church and I hope to go back again another day, it is about 45 minutes from us.
