I was going to say something witty about "my baby walking by" it, but then I remembered that happened at Winchester Cathedral.

Nice cats, though.

Cheers.

PI said...

Are you a cat person Randall?

R. Sherman said...

Actually, I'm a "dog person." I start sneezing if someone merely whispers the word, "cat."

Cheers.

This could seriously be a postcard, Pat. The sky is a perfect backdrop to the tower. I wish I could be right there on the grass.

PI said...

Randall: and they can give you ringworm!

PI said...

Carmi: it wasn't my shot and I did give a credit to the photographer Steve Day. He is excellent I agree.

That has to be one of the bluest skys I've ever seen. Whitest clouds and greenest grass and trees too. And that castle sure is castle-colored, isn't it?

Nice image...

Michele sent me.

PI said...

Mike I agree with all of that but it's a cathedral not a castle:)

Kath said...

I'm breathless!

PI said...

Kath: I think it's my favourite cathedral. You know Constable did a beautiful painting of it.

This is a lovely shot, Pat. Have you read the historical novel, Sarum, about the area by Edward Rutherford? The writing's hit or miss but he tells a great story from prehistory - Stonehenge etc. - to the present day; and the period in which the cathedral featured heavily. I"ve never been but it is definitely one of the 10 British places to see before I die list.

Sam: my mother always loved that novel and I took her to stay in Salisbury. On our last morning I drove her to the Sarum area but had car problems which inhibited my appreciation. I think she enjoyed it.
