Photo Fun

I am happy to say it is time for more Photo Fun. 

For any reads new to this feature, I share with you a photo from my personal collection and I tell you a little about it. I love so many of these photos and I just hate that they sit on my hard drive doing nothing.

Today's picture takes us to cold and rainy Scotland...

It was a cold and dreary day when I was traveling through Glasgow. It was about 7 years ago and I was running around with a bright and shiny 3.0 mp digital camera.

A couple of things struck me about Glasgow. First, was the architecture. Many of the structures were 500 - 800 years old. They reeked of history. The second was that the people of Glasgow couldn't understand why tourists would come there. Many asked me if I was lost on my way to Edinburgh. Ha ha.

Since I am a sucker for old stuff, I wandered in to Glasgow Cathedral. The structure that I visited was consecrated in 1197. It still has an active congregation.

As I wandered around I was taken back by the beautiful stained glass windows and the cross. So of course I snapped the picture and continued my wandering.

It wasn't until I got home did I notice the eerie, I don't even know what you want to call it. The picture is untouched and unedited and if you asked me to create the effect again I would cry in frustration unable to do it.

My churchy friends tell me it is the Lord doing a little magic.

I think it is pretty cool.
