112 - ST. BARTHOLMEW'S CHURCH, CRESSWELL - DAVE EDWARDS - 2012 by 


FEATURED BY TOTALLY AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP – 14th July 2012

This is a companion to number 111. It shows a carved face of someone apparently suffering from toothache. It can be found at St. Bartholomew’s Church in Cresswell, a lovely little Northumbrian village.

I used my Samsung WB700 compact camera.

My real name is Dafydd (Dave) and I am retired for health reasons and take charge of the housework while my wife is at work. I have many interests, including genealogy, poetry, writing, art, art study, local history, photography (I’ve no expensive equipment though – just a love for clicking) etc.

    Kind of unusual for a church… Nice capture Dave.

  • At first I wondered if it was one of those “in jokes” that sculptors often indulge in …. maybe one of them had been to the dentist. You have set me thinking and maybe it refers to this passage from James:

    5 Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. 6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
