Getting Ready For Tomorrow

Tomorrow is CDP's Theme Day - The Beauty of Decay.  
I found something interesting to photograph
here at the Old Coventry Cathedral.


Please notice that the sun is out :).  We headed back into town today so that I could get some photo's for tomorrow and show off the view from inside Coventry Cathedral looking out as it was this morning.  I am standing at the alter look back towards what would have been the main entrance (to the right of the spire).   See you tomorrow!

Participating in Skywatch Friday and Ein Stück Himmel.

I'm imagining what it must have been like when the rest of the cathedral was in place LOL. How wonderful to have spot like this to explore and use, didn't you say that they have concerts here at times.

This cathedral is a mother lode for decay shots, I am sure. I'll be back tomorrow!

Was this the one that was bombed during the war? If so, theyve done a fine job restoring it

The spire soaring skyward is so majestic, and you've captured it from the perfect angle. What a gorgeous spot.

I visited here many years ago (when I still lived in the UK) and found this a much sadder place than I expected . Very different to other ruins of Abbeys and such like - maybe the history is not distant enough for it to just feel "charming".

Nice picture.

Thank you all...it was a lovely morning and I was REALLY glad to see some blue sky.

Grace - The film 'Nativity' featured this area and they have have had lots of entertainment in the past with limited space for the audience.

Jack - :).

Christopher - All they could do is preserve the remains. The spire survived the bombings.

Stewart - I identify with what you say. After living here for nearly 40 years...there is a lot to celebrate from what has been achieved through reconciliation efforts by the Cathedral and Coventry City throughout the world since 1940.

Probably the best example today of the beauty of decay theme day.
