Up Close ...
... to a gargoyle - or maybe a water-spout? There was a pretty stout railing between it and me, so I couldn't get any closer.
We were on top of the tower at Melrose Abbey, and it was a great day for viewing the country round - I think. I'd just been to the opthalmologist and had drops in my eyes, so things were a bit blurry.
Going round the Abbey was displacement activity - I really wanted to have coffee and a scone in one of the cafes, but I'm supposed to be trying to fit into my summer frocks, and summer seems to be here.
I had the idea that I'd get a shot for the Wide Angle challenge from up there. The theme today is 'artistic'. Well, I suppose the carvings in the stone are sort-of artistic ... I gave it a tweak in GoArt, see extra, but I prefer the original.
Thanks very much, BobsBlips for hosting the challenge and prompting me to give my least-used lens an outing.
