This is my entry for Krissy's Photo Scavenger Hunt #81 hosted by Val . The subject is things that make a noise.
My first thought for an entry was my cats, you wouldn't believe what stompy feet they have when running around. They sound like a herd of horses!
I decided on this photo I took in La Paz, Bolivia of the cathedral bells of the cities' old Incan cathedral. They were right opposite my hotel so I can vouch for the fact they made a noise! I felt like Quasimodo .... clutching my ears and calling 'The bells, the bells!'
If you want to play entries have to be in to Val by this evening at
There is a Season. Post an entry on your journal and leave a link to it in Val's comment box.

It has always amazed me how much noise something so small can make.  Bet you can hear them for miles.  Great entry.

Jeannette,
Great picture of the bells. The largest bell I have encountered hangs in the spire of the Dom at Cologne (Germany), and weighs 25 tons. It is only rung 3 times each year; at Easter, Christmas and Sylvester (New Year's Eve), because it makes the 400 ft high spire of the Dom sway alarmingly.
