Oh, what a marvelous looking place (partly, I think, because of the lovely blue sky...)
It looks like if you went into the graveyard at night you might meet some benevolent ghost (I picture a man, probably smoking a pipe) who'd be willing to perch on the edge of a gravestone and chat about the great beyond.
If there IS a great beyond.
The churchyard is magical.
And the daffodils are just beginning to poke through. It will look amazing in spring.
Daffodils among the gravestones- imagine!
Which canal? says the enthusiastic holiday boater...
Slaithwaite is right next door to Huddersfield, so I guess it's the Huddersfield canal.
Huddersfield Narrow, from the look of it, then (there's also a Huddersfield Broad). That one goes right across/through the Pennines; I will be walking near the eastern end of the tunnel that takes it through the highest bit in a few weeks.
Hey, I like that, especially the canal. Where is it?
West Yorkshire, quite close to Huddersfield.
Number 2 is the sort of building being converted into city centre flats in Newcastle (which by and large, don't get me wrong, is a good thing).
But my favourite is number 6: the lady in the sentry box in the churchyard - what is going on there?
My favourite too. She's carved on the edge of a gravestone. This shot may make things clearer.
The cemetery photographs are especially evocative--the mossy girl looks almost like a ghost.
Doesn't she just! That's my favourite from the set.
