On day 4 or my taking a photo every day exercise, looking upwards I snapped my local church tower in St Austell, Cornwall.
There's a saying about how we sometimes don't see what's staring us in the face. This is how I feel about the church. I've walked past it thousands of times but haven't taken it all in properly - it's just something that's there - like the bakers, the pubs, the market house and so on.
I had noticed the clock and the four saints' statues but never the little dog looking down from the very top or the strange creatures at the corners of the tower and the funny looking faces also looking down on the people walking past..
What this has shown me is how easy it is to take things for granted and how it's good to look at things from a different perspective at times. Goodness knows what else there is all around me that I'm missing out on.

How intriguing! A dog. Why a dog? You live in a beautiful place, Mike!ReplyDelete
No idea why a dog. I've searched the Internet but nothing comes up. I'll have to see if anyone knows locally.Delete
I love the pictures of the church and the dog is puzzling. I often dip into your blog and always find something of interest.ReplyDelete
