York Minster

without comments

Many of you know that I reside in the US, and here in the US we like to build things that are big. We live in a big country, with big buildings, big hair, and big mouths. We know big. However, when I came upon York Minster located in the heart of York England my jaw dropped. York Minster, now that is big! To get the entire front of the church in frame, I had use my super wide angle at 10mm, as wide as it would go.

I visited York, UK with no expectations and left loving the place. I had just visited York Minster when I walked by this fudge shop with a friendly attendant. She noticed that I had my camera out and she gave me a big smile and thumbs up to take her picture!

Mmmmmm…. Bile Beans

Bile Beans, don’t they sound scrumptious?  I’ve never had anything like them, but the name alone makes me vomit a little bit in my mouth.  Bile Beans back in the day were a great way to releave consitpation.  This sign was in a famous 1980’s painting by Baz Ward, if you want to learn more visit the York Stories blog.  I took this photo because I thought if quiet hilarious.

The Massive York Minster Cathedral

York Minster

The sheer size of York Minster is amazing!  The catheral was built in 8th century and towers 60m tall.  I had no idea they could build things this big back then.  Located in the old walled city, York Minster is easy to find, just walk toward the tallest building you see.  York is a great place to visit, not only for York Minster, but the old city streets dating back to who know when.  I took this photo at the front entrance shooting HDR.

About York

York needs to be on your itinerary for your next trip to the UK.  The city was described to us as the England’s second city; however, not in city size, but in culture.  The city center still has it’s medeval walls and to enter you have to go through an old gate.  Boasting several restaurants, museums, historic buildings, and shopping, you will not be disappointed with York.
