Last week, we ditched the kids and wandered off to Chester, i thought i might like to take some photos of Chester Cathedral and its stained glass. When we finally managed to find a parking space, £15 at Northgate, what a laugh, big buildings going up, what happened to the bus station? We wandered down through the town center and stumbled across a great little music shop, Back Alley Music, we went in as you do when you have a child who thinks he’s a rock god, and found a great little amp for his birthday gift. Of course i didn’t have enough money on me there and then and was ‘forced’ to go back a few days later with the rock god and got stung for a guitar too :$ Any way off track a bit there. After browsing we went to the cathedral, its beautiful but did you know you have to PAY to get in? Well indignation and other things stopped us from visiting his holiness in his own house, a bit disappointing though. YES i KNOW they have to make money for the up keep of the cathedral but it still is not going to make me pay, so we went next door to the church and had lunch, yes we paid there but we got a full tummy out of it, and i got a couple of lovely stained glass windows out of it too, mission accomplished! We then had a meander and met a nice man selling his art by the clock, he draws/paints local scenes and sticks Dr. Who and his Dalek’s in them, great fun! I took some photos of the outside of the cathedral, that’s free, of the shop’s, also free and we had an enjoyable day out together. http://www.cityofchester.org/
I have processed some of he images using HDR, i bracketed some and used photomatix to process them, others are just a single image i have run through photoshop or photomatix.
