How lucky am I? The rain stopped, the clouds dispersed and a little blue sky opened up above the Washington National Cathedral!
I was standing in the Bishop's garden composing this photo when the church bells began to ring!
What did I do?
I called my mom and held the phone up for her to hear. She loves church bells and used to take me to carillon concerts when I was young. She couldn't believe our luck that they happen to ring when I was standing in the garden.
As I looked on the cathedral website, I found that the Washington Ringing Society performs the art of "change ringing" every Sunday (after the 11 am service) at approximately 12:30 pm.
I just looked on my computer for the photo properties and found that this picture was taken at 12:32 pm. Neat, eh?
Can you hear the church bells ringing?
