  1. That´s quite a spire! Bet rain/snow/pigeons stay away from that! Ouch! Ypu don´t wanna fall onto any of these... I just see it in a The Simpsons-episode and the picture is not nice ;-)
    Sunny but cold here, perfect Bill-weather, I reckon.

  8. That scene could have been lifted right out of a Québec town on this side of the Atlantic. And, of course, Irish immigrants flocked to that area during the years of mass emigration due to the potato famine.

  17. When I see spires, I always wonder how they were built with the technology of the time.

  21. It's amazing how many architectural variations have been worked on the simple theme of a spire. I don't think I've ever seen one exactly like that.
