Statue

Wells 10092009 079

The facade of Wells Cathedral is covered with statues and gargoyles and is very ornate. At first all you can see is the mellow stone and how the rain and winds over centuries have eroded the limestone.

Then you notice how every nook and cranny is filled with pigeons.

TheΒ birds on this statue made me think of St. Francis of Assisi.

    1. Hi Diane, unfortunately the gargoyles are too far away for my camera to pick them out that well. I hope the picture of the cathedral itself will be a good substitute!
