Yesterday I posted a shot taken outside the parish church of St.Michael and All Angels at Haworth and today this is one of the inside. I will explain why it is not my usual shot of the whole chancel but rather one side only.
At the rear of the church is a big notice bidding welcome to photographers, both professional and amateur. I stood here taking this photograph and as I did so the minister walked straight past me and stood almost in front of me as if I wasn't there, filling the right hand side of the frame, fiddled around with a bit of paper and then walked off. Hence I had to cut the right hand side off the picture. I moved in to the chancel and took a picture of the altar before hearing a voice from a "Jobsworth" behind me say that pictures were not to be taken past the chancel step and would I please move. I "bit my tongue" and left the church at that point.
Where was the much trumpeted welcome highlighted on the notice I mentioned, this is the only time I can remember ever leaving a church without putting a donation in the box at the back of the church.
