Ce qu'elle joue doit être très joli.

What a wonderful image!
Chris: The Penniless Porch in Wells, Somerset, England, is an entrance gateway into a walled precinct, the Liberty of St Andrew, which encloses the twelfth century Cathedral, the Bishop's Palace, Vicar's Close and the residences of the clergy who serve the cathedral. It has been designated as a Grade I listed building.
The Penniless Porch was built around 1450, by Bishop Thomas Beckington (also spelt Beckyngton) and bears his rebus or badge on the cathedral side. It forms one of a pair with The Bishop's Eye which formed the gateway into the Bishop's palace from the market place.
It is a three-storey building of Doulting ashlar stone. The roof is behind a battlemented parapet. It is connected to the adjacent buildings and the rooms above the archway are used by the company occupying No 16 Market Place. The first floor room has panelling from the 17th century.
The Penniless Porch was painted by Joseph Mallord William Turner in 1795.
It was named for the beggars who plied their trade there, however in 2016 a man was prosecuted for begging nearby

So now you know..
Un endroit bien vu pour faire une pause musicale
Chris: Yes indeed, thank you Claudine

Rain? In England? Surely not! Looking at the money collected, hopefully she has only just started to play and has not been there all day.
Chris: Yes indeed, she had just started

She has some nice looking pastries for her lunch Tiff
Chris: I get your drift Chad
was she playing for the unique sound she could create in that spot?

A long time friend who has been making and playing flutes now for 30 years and lives out in the US southwest often looks for places to produce the most unique or the greatest sounds not to earn money
Chris: Very interesting Alan
A very fine shot of this young lady, what a shame you can't give her a copy of it.
Chris: Yes - you're quite right Brian, a pity..
In a dry spot so why not. I am sure it lifts a bit of gloom.
Chris: Yes it certainly does
