Catching the Light Hereford

The third in the ‘Catching the Light…’ series finds me in Hereford whilst making a visit to see the glorious Mappa Mundi at Hereford Cathedral. Since a small child I have been fascinated by maps and as one of the largest medieval maps in the world, the Mappa Mundi from around 1300 holds particular significance. The folds of a fabric window blind at our hotel captured a moment of light that I had to ‘catch’, the same light that shone around the Mappa Mundi, the same light that had been present when it was first being crafted.
