367 // 365
Today we played Santa for most of the day. Wrapping presents in the morning then dropping them off in the afternoon. This little guy is probably my favourite Christmas decoration without him actually being mine. He lives with kB’s mum and dad, and I thought he deserved to be the star of his own shot today, even if this shot is a bit similar to yesterdays.
This morning I went to the Crooked Spire Church in Chesterfield. It’s proper name is St Mary’s and All Saints, but it is known for it’s crooked spire and such is locally called ‘The Crooked Spire’.
It was an uninterestingly overcast day, and I’m trying to only snap-to-use (meaning no snapping for the sake of snapping if I know I wont use the shot!) so I didn’t take any photos outside, nor did I take any photos of the view when I got to the top, but I did snap some inside.
Walking to the top of the building was not my wisest of choices, doubly so when I didn’t even take a photo. I could feel my legs and hips starting to twinge as I was going up, but I went up anyway. Sometimes I’m my own worst enemy.
Today also marks the first day of the Easter holidays, and my challenge to take a photo in a different location every day (weather permitting).
Day 1 / 16 – Photo in a different location every day challenge
Location 1: St Mary’s and All Saints Church, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, UK.
Chesterfield Parish Church is the largest Parish Church in the Diocese of Derby. It was built in the 14th century, but the spire was added later, in 1362. The spire twists 45 degrees and leans almost 10 feet from where it should.
