Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

I’ve been waiting for a reason to post to show you the inside of Exeter Guildhall. In May there was an exhibition about the 1942 blitz and I popped in for the first time in thirty years. It is believed to have been built around the late 12th century, with a new front in the 16th and the interior was restored in the 19th century. In my photo you can see the windows reflected in the chandelier and some of the exhibition stands.

There will be hundreds of different interpretations of inside over at the Daily Post.

Between your photo and my friend Jean’s (Local Nomad) recent “above” post of a section of the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco (constructed for the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition), I am inspired now to look UP and take more “above” photos, too!
