March Square – number 24

I know, why is this number 24 when there are 31 days in March. I was a bit busy early in the month and didn’t get started straight away. This #MarchSquare is the whole photo of a couple of popular posts plus some wheels as I promised Becky.

Here is a bit more of the tiles on the floor in the Grafton Cathedral. Can you see the the parts I posted earlier this month?

March Square – number 14

Time to pop back into the Grafton Cathedral for #MarchSquare

Three stained glass window circles in a square. If I paid more attention they would be three circles in three circles in a square. A bit of crap cropping…bugger

March Square – number 6

Another part of the tiled floor in the Grafton Cathedral. Perhaps not a Gold Star for #MarchSquare this time. Maybe if I stood on something to get more of the floor in the photo I could have had five squares within a square

Square March – number 2

The tiled floor in the Christ Church Cathedral in Grafton has given me a few #MarchSquares. I featured the Cathedral in a recent post here

Look Becky, a square in a square in a square within a square. Can anyone top that?

Black and White Sunday – The Cathedral

For this Traces of the Past, I recently spent a bit of time on a rainy day in the Cathedral Church of Christ the King in my town of Grafton NSW Australia. The Cathedral was finished in 1884. Originally there was a small wooden church on the site built in 1842. The Cathedral is in a great green space in the heart town with the bell tower ringing out the time, a tradition I love.

The northern face. You can see the two halves of the church in the roof line where the second part was added

The pews have been replaced by comfortable chairs with cushions

Some of the old pews have been retained

The old wooden seats in the front of the cathedral have been kept as well but with cushions added for the comfort of the cathedral officials.

There are many parts of the Cathedral that have been kept in good order

I couldn’t not show you the colour version

And of course I also had to include a bit of the nature who live around the Cathedral. You will always see a Skink or two on the walls.

Hope you enjoyed a look around the Cathedral in my town.

Mundane Monday Challenge #148

The topic for this weeks Mundane Monday Challenge is Clothes Hanging with an emphasis on framing

I took this photo while visiting the Grafton Art Gallery a while ago. Looking across the back yards, there were so many T-Shirts hanging on the line.

I thought I would include this photo when I was learning how to apply different techniques in the photo program I use just for interest.
