CHAPEL - LLANARTH


Posted by Picasa
Throughout Wales you will come across Chapels of all shapes and sizes.
One feature that I have noticed is that Chapels need to be viewed from the front, whereas Churches and Cathedrals tend to more special from the side or three quarter face. The gravestones are wonderful works of art in themselves because of the capacity of slate to take both broad and very fine lines.
It was because of these chapels or more especially, the slate, that I have developed a love of GREY. After rain the cemeteries glow with colour as do the walls and roofs. Wales is not grey and dull but grey and spectacularly colourful.
