Hole in the Wall

This is one of the gates in the sandstone walls that surround St Leonards School in St Andrews. Like many old walls in the town it is most likely built using the stone from ruined St Andrews Cathedral.

The “turrets” look to be purely for asthenics rather than function.

The Pulpit – Holy Trinity Church

A few days ago I went back into Holy Trinty Church to grab some more shots for their Website (http://www.holyt.co.uk). They’ve asked for a few specific images to put up on their site.

This is the first one I’ve finished processing for them. It shows the pulpit of the church. The organ pipes can also be seen in the back ground.
