Photographer's Note

For my second post from Mount Grace Priory I have chosen this image of the east fa軋de. Founded in 1398, Mount Grace Priory was home to an order of Carthusian Monks. For more information please click the link above.

On the grass behind the cross, if you look carefully you can see parallel markings just within the walls. These are where the monk痴 stalls were located, although, as I explained in my previous post, the monks lived solitary lives eating and praying in their own cells and didn稚 use the church very often. In between the monk痴 stalls you can just make out the markings of a tomb. This is thought to be the resting place of Thomas Beaufort, the priory痴 patron. I can稚 find out if the cross is marking anything in particular. It is not shown in any of the photos in the booklet I bought, or on anything I can find on the 創et. I assume it is a recent addition.

I have an alternative shot in the WS. This one is very centrally composed and I know that is not ideal and I usually try and avoid that, although in this case I prefer it to the de-central composition in the WS. What do you think?
