My mondays aren't like that any more ;-)
Ginnie Hart: I know, Cherry. Isn't it wonderful?!!!
What a find that is! And good in B&W here, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I was with Lisl, who made sure I found it! smile

It is very good...a fine sense of humour at Wells.
Ginnie Hart: Apparently there are all kinds of treasure to be found in these grand cathedrals, Ray, if you know where to look! Thanks.

I think he just showed his tooth being pulled out and now he needs a kiss......
Don't you just love it, I wonder what the story is behind this one... Great detail and love the B&W.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid, and YES...I would love to know the story behind this!!! I wonder if Lisl knows?

I always admire your talent of observing - a wonderful detail I never saw at Wells Cathedral - but there are more than 400 figures as I read.
Ginnie Hart: I can't take credit for finding this one, Philine. Lisl was the one who pointed it out to me. Wouldn't it be fun to find all 400 of them!

Hou, la grimace !
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Martine, isn't it!
Magnifique bas relief sur la haut de cette colonne.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale. I love stuff like this in the grand cathedrals. Little treasures to be found everywhere. smile

Only one eye or only half awake? At first I thought this fellow was smoking a pipe Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: And to think he's complaining about a toothache, Chad! smile
What a great find Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Lisl was the one who found it for me, Bill, and I was pleasantly surprised!

Lost an eye, battling with a tooth - man alive, that is a real bad Monday.
Ginnie Hart: It makes my Mondays seem like heaven, Louis. smile

apparently his excuse is that he's missing an eye, and bites his finger nails smile neat shot, sister!!!
Ginnie Hart: Actually, this is "the one" in the cathedral with a toothache, Elaine. HA! Apparently there are 400 such figures throughout the place...if you can find them. smile
If he was modelled on an actual person time hadn't been kind to him.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure you're right, Brian! sad
I think that fellow has a sore tooth.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Mary. He's the figure known to have a toothache. smile

An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth?
Ginnie Hart: OMG, Bonnie. I couldn't have said it better! smile
Reminds me of one of our late, great commedians, whose name I can't remmber right now.
Ginnie Hart: I'll take you at your word, Tom. smile
The Hunchback of the Wells Cathedral? wink
Ginnie Hart: Maybe, LC????
Hey, that looks like me!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I hope not, Michael!!! smile

Funny face!
Ginnie Hart: A toothache, Anne. sad
I think at Quasimodo. Nice bw and photo Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Marie. And now he has a toothache. sad
something stuck in the teet? smile this is by far one of the most unusual faces i have seen, Ginnie. very well spotted
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. This is the one known in the cathedral as The Toothache. smile
> Unusual > cool capture.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Jacquelyn, isn't it. Thanks.
Oh my...what an interesting little character...and to know there are 400 of "them!"
Ginnie Hart: I know, Robin. Lisl knew where this one was and took me there immediately. So much to see in that church, tucked away in all the nooks and crannies.
