... is this week's theme at Bonnie's Photo Art Friday.
Immediately I remembered a visit to England back in the summer of 1997. It was a bit of a weird week. The weekend before Princess Diana had died, and the country was in mourning. Wherever we went, if there was a church there were huge piles of flowers, cards and candles. Sometimes even on the sidewalk at the village green.
We went to Gloucester and visited the magnificent cathedral there. While an entire wing of the cathedral was crowded with people waiting in line to finally get their turn to write into the book of condolences, we strolled around the otherwise very quiet old grounds until I stopped short when I saw this beautiful reflection at the foot of one of the mighty pillars. The sunlight fell through the stained glass windows and threw the colors on the old stones as if he was enjoying himself tremendously. I loved it then, I still do now.
Thank you, Bonnie, for another great challenge! Please visit her blog to see way more fantastic photos of light and more. Pure eye candy!
