Over the wall

I like to take photos from slightly different viewpoints.

I also like to photograph a particular feature of a building inside

and out

and sometimes the traditional shot

even if the trees get in the way.

It should be Sunday

Only it’s Bank Holiday Monday. The only sounds heard are the wood pigeons calling out to each other.  The roar of a car engine momentarily shatters the peace. The car speeds by, the occupant apologetic.  It feels like a Sunday even though the refuse truck has been and gone. No Bank Holiday for them.  It feels quintessentially British. A throw back to the television shows from the sixties that I would watch endlessly as I grew up. Any minute now John Steed and Emma Peel would appear, roll opening credits……

It feels earlier than it is, the sun is still hiding behind low cloud, perhaps hiding in a game of hide and seek that only its playing.

There is a stillness in the air, it still feels like it should be Sunday…..

A Sunday Morning Walk

The early morning mist hung around this April morning, so these images look as though they were taken earlier than 11am.
It was so quiet as I walked through the churchyard, then I heard the distinctive sound of crows  and a dog barking in the distance.

 

It was a little chilly (compared to yesterday) but a pleasant walk to recharge the batteries and ready for the following week.

Angel

I often find myself walking around churches and graveyards, the other day I walked through a large cemetery and saw this lovely Angel

Although the day was bitterly cold, the sun was shining and a robin was singing his heart out

A Sunday Morning Walk

It was a little chilly out side yesterday (Sunday) so I took a brisk walk rather than my usual saunter.

However shortly after this photo was taken, it began to rain which turned very quickly into sleet.

The Old and the New

As I wander around from place to place (with my trusty camera) I see buildings old and new.  Some still in regular use, and others just waiting, waiting until they are ‘repurposed’

I see a lot of churches, large and small, and I wonder if those who built them ever thought of how long the building would last.

or how these stately homes would adapt and survive

This building below

however has had many uses throughout the years.
