This is Friends Meeting House in Lancaster. The building featured previously in my post Things That Look Like Faces, which was my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.
I don’t have any more photos of this building, so the bonus here is going to be this sign on the side of the house on the opposite side of street.
When I took these pictures, I had no idea what Friends Meeting was–I even feared I was not supposed to actually photograph that house and was doing something naughty. That’s why I only took the one sole pic. Now, of course, I know it’s the Quakers and it seems disrespectful to be using their meeting house for things-that-look-like-faces type of internet thing.
It’s been a bit dry here on Some Photoblog lately, so I decided to post some photos of places I’ve been to that I have not posted before.
So this is Lancaster Castle.
All the shots are outdoor ones, as photography is not allowed inside–the castle used to be a prison and is still used for legal proceedings. Under UK law it is not allowed to take pictures inside courts.
Also, the Queen is Duke of Lancaster here.
Is there anything worse than a van ruining your pic?
Seriously, have you had a beautiful shot completely spoiled by a vehicle (or other things or people)? And anyone here been to Lancaster? I definitely recommend, if you’re in the area.
