Woburn Abbey Gardens

Just a few photos from last years day trip to  Woburn Abbey and Gardens

As you can see this little chap was more than happy to pose for his photo

His friends were a little shy, though they are very vocal birds

These next shots  remind me of all the secret passages from all the Enid Blyton books I read as a child

It was a great day out, one I hope to repeat as there is always something interesting to see.







Connecting with the Past

On a very chilly but sunny Sunday afternoon

I took a  quick walk though Foster Hill Road Cemetery Bedford

I was there to listen to a very entertaining talk by author Ruth Hogan (Keeper of Lost Things) but took the time to take a few photos with my trusty camera on my way out.




Birds through the Lens

I have been looking through some old shots and have found quite a few of Great Crested Grebes.

Maybe one of these days I will be able to capture their incredible courtship display.

Looking through old photos

Flicking through old photo albums, or clicking on digital images on your PC. Its the same. That moment in time when you pressed the shutter and captured that image.





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.





I love to watch birds in flight

Sometimes I am not quite quick enough

or close enough

to get the shot I would like

but I still love to watch birds in flight.



From the Archive

Looking back on some old photos

Bedford’s very own Pyramid!

The changing face of the river

Buildings being demolished

New ones being built

Old buildings

get a new purpose

And not a Swan in sight!
