City Daily Photo Theme Day - Looking Out

From inside the Coventry Cathedral looking out of
The Great West Window
to the Cathedral ruins beyond.


The Screen of Saints and Angels window was created by John Hutton.
(The link is excellent if you are interested in reading more.)


The photo on the left (below) is taken from inside the new Cathedral 
and the one on the right is taken from inside the Cathedral ruins toward the new Cathedral.


The shot below is my favorite.  Every time I 
turned around there were groups of children having
a school day out to see and learn about Coventry's history.


The only thing missing here for me is a bit of sunshine.
I'm sure you will find plenty of that if you 
have a look at other participants in

You know I have never visited Coventry Cathedral but you have now made me want to

I do love Coventry cathedral. Last time I visited, a few years ago, I felt that it was not being made enough of - as a symbol, as an architectural masterpiece. I hope that they are at least selling a nice history of it in the shop now. And your photo showed some of what attracts me so much about it.

Lovely views. As for sunshine, it's a rarity here this time of year north of Toronto in Ontario, Canada. :))

I remember going to Coventry Cathedral on my first trip to England in 1973.

Lovely series! What an elegant and unusual window!

raf said...

Wonderful artistry in glass and architecture for looking out or in. Yep, would expect a soul from Pasadena to always miss the sun. :)

Sharon said...

The beautiful glass is just amazing. I'd love to visit here some day.

These are all marvelous I can't pick a favorite.

Merisi said...

Old and modern go along so well, what beautiful details all around.

The figures are reminiscent of ice sculptures. At least, this time of the year. On a very cold morning, that was my first thought.

JM said...

Great post! All shots are wonderful.
