It is about time

Why quiet desperation is the English way. 


If Picasso was a photographer, perhaps he would have composed the York Minster Cathedral this way. His fascination with cubes, triangles, rectangles and circles presented in distorted perspective.  I suppose I am giving too much credit to myself.  That is because I am really digging this image.  If you search the web for images of the York Minster, I doubt that you will find one that is like this picture.   The inclusion of the a modern clock, the two brick buildings acting as borders, and the deliberate tilt would make one think that the photographer had been drunk, which would likely be the case, or he is a postmodern genius.  Take your pick.

York Minster is what it is commonly called for the Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of St Peter.  The Minster is the seat of the archbishop of York, the second highest office of the Church of England.

Shot with the iPhone 6 on a great day blessed by the Creator.  Time was almost 4 PM.  In an hour, the church would hold its vesper.  Not the cocktail made of gin.  Although that would have been delightful.  But an evening of wonderful singing by the church choir.


Hope your day is going well.  Have a good weekend.
