Very civilised to have a door for the local cats, Chris.
Chris: I don't think it refers to felines Ray

Great image, love the reflections and the see through.
Beautiful details.
Chris: One day I will take you to this wonderful place Astrid, Ginnie & you will surely love it

It is obvious that people can be absorbed into the whole fabric of such a building.
Chris: That is a very reflective comment Comrade, you are clearly remembering to take your medication..
It is a fine place and you have found a very pleasing detail
Chris: What you see in the glass are all reflections, a hint at what you might expect to find within

Where is the door for the cats? (Ray) - I see only the 'Gothic' windows and the fascinating reflections (look into the giftshop/ the café?) - this part of Salisbury Cathedral is not known to me - I was very impressed with this cathedral -outside and inside!
Chris: I went to Salisbury a couple of weeks ago and visited the Cathedral Philine, naturally I took a lot of pictures but few get posted on Shutterchance because there is no space. The is one of the entrance doors

Some lovely doubling up of images in the leaded glass - even the hi-viz jacket looks good!

A door for PUS (Philine) that Ray is a card ;o)
Chris: Ray Storey is a VERY NAUGHTY BOY!

The breadth of your travels never cease to amaze. I have fiends (yes, strange but true) who live near Salisbury but I've yet to get even into the Close.
Chris: That is outrageous. Get down off those wind-lased freezing mountains and explore the delights of this charming place!

Alan enlightened me about Ray's (typically!) joke. You know I love church cats and I had a special relationship with Louis, the church cat in Wells Cathedral who died a few years ago, sadly. Salisbury Cathedral had many cats since ages, for example "Wolfie gave pleasure to the cathedral staff and visitors for over 16 years, but died after a short illness in November 2011. His memory remains on souvenirs such as fridge magnets bearing his likeness, which were sold in the cathedral shop." I assume there is not any cat or puss now, unfortunately!

Chris: I wouldn't be surprised if there is always a resident Cathedral cat Philine: the Brits do so love tradition..
These are beautiful old windows. These old European Cathedrals are treasures.
Chris: They are indeed Mary, always a pleasure to visit them
Wonderful reflections through the glass, Chris. Such an elaborate design; just beautiful.
Chris: This just caught my eye as I was about to pass through Bev
This is how it was during my only visit to Salisbury, being a Sunday services were being held and so we didn't venture inside.
Chris: Thank you Brian
Very Victorian - I assume?
Chris: This screen might be but the fabric of the building certainly isn't Tom

What lovely leaded windows
Chris: Gorgeous aren't they: thank you Anne

I just started photographing images in glass windows, I find them to be very interesting

I didn't notice these delightful windows or the reflections on my recent visit. Maybe next time...
