This is the image for week 28 of my 52-week-project, 52 Weeks of Yorkshire. Many people know of York Minster, but York has plenty of other churches dotted around, each with its own story. This is the Church of St Lawrence. There has been a church on this site as early as the 12th Century, although the current church is more recent. The current church is the second-largest religious building in York, which, given the size of the Minster, is impressive. I can’t say I’m particularly religious, but part of me is thankful to those who are for providing us with such beautiful monuments. They would say it is a monument to God, but I am more inclined to say it’s a monument to the beauty that we human beings can create.

This is the image for week 27 of my 52-week-project, 52 Weeks of Yorkshire. These walls surround the medieval city, and have stood for centuries. One of my fascinations, both with regards to photography, and in general, is with the monuments left behind by our ancestors. Sometimes these monuments are intended as such, like the Minster, but these walls were never intended to inspire awe in future generations - or at least, that wasn’t their main purpose - but to defend the city from attack. It’s rare that you get to walk the circumference of a centuries-old structure, still as stable today as it was when it was built.
