Day 26- 29/10/09

Todays photo of the day comes with two photos. Upon looking at the church it may be just another church in town, but read the sign, and it has a bit more of a story!

The sign reads: "Let this small monument record the name of Cadman and to future times proclaim how by'n attempt to fly from this high spire across the Sabrine stream he did acquire his fatal end. 'Twas not for want of skill, or courage to perform the task he fell: no, no, a faulty cord being drawn too tight hurried his soul on high to take her flight which bid the body here beneath good night. February 2nd 1739 aged 28"

I loaded my 35mm up with film this morning and spent a couple hours wandering around the town. It felt nice to take photos with a "proper camera" and of course found I framed each shot and thought about it a bit more than just a digital camera. I've missed this camera!

A part of Sagrada Familia. It's too amazing not to be included as a photo of the day. This was taken from one of the spires looking over to the Jesus statue. I highly recommend going up the lift to see the view from the top. It's worth the wait.

When moving to a new place there is many things to get started. One is banking...This is out of the window of the bank- "Welcome to Shrewsbury" it says, and has two traditional Tudor style houses shown as well, these are all over the town. I have been to this bank every day it seems.

The standard map screen when flying always gets me excited. It seems as it's finally happening.
