    Lovely shot. There's probably a wealth of images there in different weather and at night with a clear sky for stars.

    Wandering around our village church today, I noticed for the very first time the escutcheon plate and door handle of the church's rear door. The church has origins in the 11th century, but I suppose its main claim to fame is that Boris Johnson had his first marriage here. (Oh, the same of it all!)
    Escutcheon plate: (covered in cobwebs):

    And the old door handle - also cobwebbed:

    Keyworth St Mary Magdalene Parish Church. This 14th century church is at the highest point in a hill village and the distinctive octagonal lantern can be seen from many miles away.

    St Paul's Anglican Cathedral, Dunedin. Not ancient, as you might think, but built in the early 1900s.

    Yes I just looked it up on openstreetmap. Curious about doing rides out that way. Only time I have been out there near you was a club ride starting out of the garden centre at high Legh. Just need to find a low traffic road route through Winsford/Middlewich conurbation. It's easy enough to get out round north of Northwich but that is a long way round to Marton.

    Salisbury, using a Sigma 10-20 at 10 mm and I second (self timer and camera held against stonework at the base of a column).

    Padua - same lens and focal length, with self timer and camera laying on floor as I quickly retreated out of shot.

    Pienza - and again same lens and focal length, with self timer and camera laying on floor as I quickly retreated out of shot.

    Ravello - a scanned Kodachrome. Probably a 50 mm lens and handheld at 1/30 second.

    Possibly the main benefit of religion to European culture has been its architecture.

    Most of these are a bit usual, how about something a bit stranger...
