I had a chance last week to look around Rochester and do some sketching and take some photos. These thumbnails are inspired by that trip. I also had an interesting idea about the religion of the citizens of Octavia. They worship the two mountains from which the city is suspended, represented by the female sculpture on the left (thumbnail 1 ) and the male one to the right.
Here are some photos taken from the Rochester Cathedral:
And some urban sketching of the buildings around the University and Rochester Cathedral on the Outside:
