Do you see what I see…..

This photograph was taken a couple of weeks ago in Audlem, Cheshire.  St James’s Church was founded in the 13th Century and stands on a hill once thought to be a Celtic burial ground. Towering over the village, it reaches for the heavens more effectively than any spire.

The stone pillar and iron gates cast a long shadow across the foreground on this cold autumnal afternoon; could this be an uninvited guest with a scythe, approaching the church steps, looking for Edward:The Reaper

Inside the southern porch, on the right hand side of the entrance arch, there is Edward’s face, the other face cunningly hidden:Edward's Face

    That shadow is creepy. All of your photos are great, but you have a real gift for black and white.

      Thanks Julie, very kind comment. I didn’t notice that shadow until I was mucking about in Photoshop and then wished I hadn’t 🙂
