Weekly Photo Challenge: Corner

This is the exterior wall of the nave at Westminster Abbey in London, where numerous corners on the famous flying buttresses are visible.  “To buttress” means to hold something up. Here, stone arches connect the buttresses to the wall of windows and heavy roof, giving it “wings” and the perceived ability to fly off to Heaven itself!
