A quiet space

I love the little square at the front of the Upper Chapel on Norfolk Street in Sheffield.  Its a great place to sit with a sandwich or chat with a pal.


 It has 3 lovely sculptures by Sheffield born George Fullard.   I love these sculptures as I have been   all of these women at some time or other - and often all at the same time!
 Mother and Child
 Angry Woman - OK, so I may never have worn a Ra ra skirt!
 Running Woman - in those shoes?  I don't think so!
 The square also has a great view over the higgledy piggaldy roof tops of the cafes and shops behind.  A view that my husband says that you would never notice - unless you were out with a blogger and her camera!

You are painting a picture of a very interesting city in your posts. We must visit soon.

I love those kinds of quiet places too. Where you can just take a moment from the hustle & bustle.
Keep taking those brilliant photos, blogger with camera. xx

When I see people taking photos of random things at odd or unusual angles I always wonder if they too are bloggers! I love those sculptures:)

We are such enriching souls aren't we? Without us others wouldn't get to see sights we pick out with the help of a camera lens!
Angry woman looks like her skirt is made out of autumn leaves.

I like views across rooftops and chimney pots.

That looks as though it would be a really lovely quiet place to go. So often these little corners are better than big parks.

Not too keen on the sculpture, though!

It is good to have a quiet space...We need more of them! I like the statues too! Hope you are well! xxx

I love that little square with its statues too. Can't beat a quiet corner and some public art. xx

Lovely photos. I actually just got back last night from a trip. Me and my family went to Mexico. It was amazing. Met some interesting people there. Actually, I met alot of English tourists down there, surprisingly enough. Most were probably from London, idk. But I did see this really cute scuba diving instructor who had a really hot English accent. OMG!! He was gorgeous!! His name was Sebastian. OMG, what a hunk!!
