Now those are beautiful pews. It would be almost enough to get me to go to church. Almost smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, in this case you'd be singing in the choir, Michael, if I'm not mistaken. smile
Très joli tissu sur les sièges.
Ginnie Hart: I love the colorful cushions from so many of the English churches and cathedrals, Martine.
Such lovely colors! I love your point of view... do all the back cushions have a quote?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks and good question, Elizabeth. I'll have to go back to find out!

A bloke could have a serious snooze in these seats, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: ...until it was time to do the musical rendition of the day, Ray!

I love the point of view and the colourful cushions. It will be a 'different' Monday morning to me, I am about to go to the 'salt mines' wink
Ginnie Hart: It's always so strange whenever you work on a Monday nowadays, Astrid, but when the reason is good, I'm glad you have the option. Hopefully it'll be a colorful day in a good way!
Loved those colors and old feel smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Joshi. These old cathedrals seem to know how to do it right!

Somewhere I really must go to see for myself. I've not been in the Cathedral for fifty tears.
Ginnie Hart: You won't be disappointed, Alan!
A fine corner of this wonderful building Ginnie

Très original cet intérieur de Cathédrale.
Merci pour le partage Ginnie

Apart from likeing the shot the embroidery on the seats and banners in the background is very good.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. You know how much this handiwork in your English churches awes me.

Oh my, the priest provided soft seats for the choir boys. Maybe I should better comment on how colourful the seats are.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Indeed so, Louis. smile
All those beautiful colors would get anyone going on a Monday!
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Robin!
What a colourful place this is, Ginnie - Gorgeous!
Ginnie Hart: I so agree, Mary. Thank you.
Ha ha... I have to say this is definitely more Orthodox than English! wink

Yea, it was so tiring yet satisfying. I am sure you would enjoy Wales as much as I did.
Ginnie Hart: Befitting a cathedral, LC, I'm sure. And yes, I know we would LOVE LOVE LOVE Wales!

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. I'm such a glutton for these English churches and cathedrals.
