Pictures from Worcester

Here are some of the pictures I've taken over the past few days. Mathias' doesn't have Photoshop so I'm using the programs he has. I can't crop them, so some include parts I would otherwise have eliminated.

This one is the cathedral in Worcester

This one shows the interior

The altar cover is a wonderfully colorful, contemporary piece of needlepoint. In fact, almost every church we've been inside included cushions and banners that were stitched both in the distant past and well as more recently.

Dozens of flags hung over the chapel dedicated to veterans from all sorts of wars. Some were quite old and had been carefully stitched to gauze-like fabric.

There were all sorts of grave markers and tombs inside the cathedral including this one with beautiful marble angels.

The crypt church had some of the most ancient sculptures including this lunette.

Here's another exterior view taken from the banks of the Severn River.

This is beautiful, downtown Worcester. We had great weather and a beautiful day.
