Brian Walbey: I always make a point of doing a full-on shot down the aisle of each church I go in Chantal, that way, if I put a sequence together with music then I can lead off from that shot on to other things.

You always do this sort of image very well. Good work on the exposure.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.
Lovely interior Brian. I went to have a look at the famous "Boston Stump today"
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Bill. Did you manage to get the whole of the "Stump" in one picture from top to bottom, it's quite tall isn't it.
A lovely little chapel!
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Elizabeth.
