Norwich Cathedral

Here are the photos I took at the second lesson of the travel photography course! We had a similar assignment: take photos of the cathedral as for a brochure or magazine. I had been to the cathedral before, but never took photos there. I am normally not very interested in churches, but by having this assignment, it made me look at it differently and I really enjoyed wandering around taking photos! I also tried to get some people in my shots…

This is in the cloisters, a “tunnel” around the courtyard with great perspective. There was a man reading in one of the “windows”, a very nice sight.

There are gravestones everywhere around the cloisters, but there happened to be one with roses on it. You also get a good view of the tower from the cloisters!

Inside the main part of the church, I liked the man sitting alone between so many empty chairs. The baptism bowl (?) on the right was used in a chocolate factory that donated it to the church, how funny is that :) Maybe they should do baptisms in chocolate then!!

There was a small exhibition of children’s art, all models of the church. Some were really great, like this one made out of computer board parts.

I liked those candles in the dark church. The window on the right was beautiful, it was the entrance to a silent room.

There is also a herb garden, smelling really nice because of all the lavender. You see many people spending their lunch break on the grounds around the cathedral, like this man reading his paper.

These women were chatting about Norwich, the one of black “belongs” to the church (sorry I am not very at home with church language, I have no idea what her function was). The photo on the right is my favourite! I really like this old couple, they looked so cute together… beautiful to see!

That’s all, more photos will follow soon! We went to see the Lord Mayor Celebrations last Saturday and took many photos of the parade. At night, they lit fireworks from the castle rooftop, which was an amazing site! I took my tripod and got some great shots, I will post them in the next few days!

Hope you all had a good weekend!
