From the market square

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 16 May 2012 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Looking across Wells market square, on the left is the market cross and in front of the Cathedral is penniless porch.

Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

The old world craftsmanship stands out nicely with such a blue sky. I love the window boxes for those nice accents of bloom.

Yes, the skyline is really intriguing - I agree with Luke. Nice job limiting the flat blue sky and the autos here keep us in the present day ;-) Beautiful piece here, Doug!

PS - I guess my opinion of the sky (which actually IS very pretty) is not quite the same as others here :-) Quirky American signing off!
