Now that I have a companion, Ive been getting out and about a bit more. Last stop was Salisbury, home of the famous cathedral. Some of the old churches and cathedrals that litter the UK are quite incredible architectural monuments. To think this was built when the Mayans were building Tulum, some 700 to 800 years ago.
The cathedral contains one of the four original copies of the Magna Carta. Which we had a good look at, behind its protective class. No photos allowed, sadly. But not unsurprisingly. That document has had quite some impact on the world, but when I look around I do think that we might be in need of a updated variant. How this would look, I haven’t yet decided. But I’d allow it to be photographed. Maybe that’s a topic for another post.
I took plenty of photos, including a set on Flickr taken with my Olumpus Pen. But I got plenty of shots of the cathedral and town with my Samsung Galaxy S2, with the Camera 360 and Vignette apps, which I uploaded to a Facebook album. Both are great fun to use and whilst the purist might turn his or her nose up at the image quality, I think the final products are pretty funky.
