This is the beginning of a book...

Malyss said...

..or the beginning of a gothic movie...:o)

Kate said...

"...it was a dark and stormy night..." How's that for a book's beginning??

Julie said...

Ciel could be close! It certainly is a visual and verbal feast.

Sharon Creech said...

Look at THAT! What a marvelous photo - and I agree w/cieldequimper: it sounds like ythe beginning of a book.

It may be "prickly" but it ain't prickly heat. I thought perhaps y'all were sticking it to the sky!

Re a tatt: If I absolutely had to do it I'd get an anchor on my left bicep! But it ain't gonna happen. :-)

Now I could ask you the same question, but not today...

This looks like you have as high a density of churches as Rome.

I don't know what prompted Lowell's comment about tattoos, but it reminds me of a time during a deposition when the witness had a tattoo "Shirley" on his forearm, which resulted in the following exchange between the other lawyer and the witness:

Q: Are you married?
A: Yes.
Q: Would your wife's name be Shirley?
A: That is the name of my ex-wife. Big mistake.
Q: The wife or the tattoo?
A: Both.

I have the feeling it's a bit cold out there.

You certainly couldn't get much more of a difference in 'atmosphere' between this image today to yesterdays image Brattcat. Yesterday was all gentle and comforting and today it's all dark and brooding! Nice work indeed.

But do spires inspire? MB

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...
