Carlisle Cathedral

Sometimes it is nice to travel and explore. My photos for this week’s photo challenge, Wanderlust, were taken towards the end of March, when I spent some time wandering around the cathedral grounds after travelling for more than an hour by train. In the sunshine I noticed features of the architecture, which I had missed previously. I took close-ups rather than trying to fit the whole of the impressive building into a single snap.

Carlisle has the edge (2 photos)

This week’s photo challenge from the Daily post is Edge.  I am posting two photos taken in Carlisle.  I took the first one from a pedestrian refuge while I waited for the  little green man to appear.  It was the flower beds and the light on the sandstone buildings, which had caught my attention.  The fact that I caught a corner of the railings was a happy accident – after all a corner is two edges meeting!

I took the second photo on the station with the idea of edge in mind.  There are edges of platforms, the top edge of the wall has been colonised by buddleia plants and this is one outer edge of the station.  Have I missed any edges in this list?
