I have so many photos to choose from, and it’s difficult to pick a favourite. York Minster has given me a number of strong images. It is a gothic church, and the second seat of the Church of England.
The Minster dominates the York skyline, and a couple of my favourite photos are taken from the Roman wall that surrounds the city. It shows the dominance of the building on the surrounding city, as well as the dominance of religion.
I have taken both black and white and colour photos of the building, and the Minster lends itself to both.
The b&w image to the left is one of my more recent images – taken a few years ago while visiting friends. It’s dominance over the surrounding buildings is quite clear, and I quite liked the wheelbarrow and gardening tools at the bottom. They give a human aspect to the surroundings.
The colour image below is an earlier image, and I liked the Minster peering through the Roman wall. It’s dominance is still there, but is contained by the stone wall.
