    Interesting, for some reason my attention is drawn to the shadow, wondering whats there. What exactly is the structure in the picture?

    Thanks for the comment A4RingedONE8T. The structure is a font, found in most Christian churches. It holds the water used in the ceremony of baptism that accompanies entry into the religion. Font design varies in time and place. This one, unusually for England, is fairly plain.

    Regards, Tony

    Wow. I really like the play of the light/shadows on the font, and how the coloured tiles fade and brighten in a sideways 'v' pattern. Really well spotted and captured pic, Tony.

    Thanks Antarctican. This was the only image I got in the church that afternoon - the sunlight through the windows was really difficult to control alongside the deep shadows. The tiles round the font are much less common than tiles in the chancel, but I was glad to see them - they made my shot!

    Regards, Tony
