Monochrome Arches – Series 4

This series continues with a few more favourite images of passageways and doors.

Old churches in England are great places to search for arches and vaults. Salisbury Cathedral has the largest cloister among all of the churches in England. A cloister is a covered walkway that surrounds an outdoor quadrangle. Salisbury Cathedral also houses one of the original copies of the Magna Carta.

The underground vaults are from Canterbury Cathedral, which is the centre of the Church of England. Canterbury Cathedral is a popular pilgrimage destination for tourists visiting the shrine of Thomas Becket, the archbishop who was murdered in the cathedral in 1170.

The other images are taken during walks in France and Spain. The passageways lead the viewer on to explore the world on the other side of the opened doors.
