Weekly Photo Challenge – Broken

Tags : 

I found this broken tree on the grounds of a lovely manor house in England, Croft Castle, when I was there in the summer of 2013. Croft Castle is located near the village of Yarpole in Herefordshire. I don’t know how long it had been lying there, but I thought it created a beautiful rustic image.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Early Bird

Tags : 

I have to be honest I am more of a night owl, but when I was visiting Newquay, Devon with my mum and dad I did grab my camera and head off to the beach at around 7:00 a.m. There were only two other people who had the same idea, which was nice, as it

Weekly Photo Challenge – Minimalist

Tags : 

This weeks Photo Challenge is – a minimalist photo can also effectively tell a story, in spite of its relative simplicity, and it is anything but “plain”. This photo was taken in Instow, a small village in Devon. There were many boats sitting on the sand waiting for the tide to come in, but this

Travel Theme: Meeting Places

Tags : 

For the Travel Theme this week I thought about when I lived in England and we would meet for tea and scones in the afternoon. The “official” name is Cream Tea which consisted of a pot of tea, scones, clotted cream and jam. it really is a delicious treat. I really enjoy a nice cup

Weekly Photo Challenge – Containers

Tags : 

For this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge I thought the good old Mail Box would be a good fit. The above artwork is my poke at email, but imagine if we didn’t have email just how full these containers would be. Or would they? We send billions of emails, many of which would have to be

Weekly Photo Challenge – Beginning

Tags : 

I took this photograph when I was in England in the summer, this wonderful vintage car belongs to my mum and dad’s neighbour. The very first car I ever owned was a Morris Minor, affectionately known to the British as a moggy thou, and I still love them to this day. Passing my driving test was so exciting because, once

Travel Theme – Stone

Tags : 

I took the original photograph of these stone ruins of an old Tin mine in Cornwall, when I was there in the summer. I can’t believe that they have mined Tin, plus other metals, in Devon and Cornwall since the Bronze Age with the last mine, South Crofty, being closed in 1998. The Tin mines

Travel Theme (Through)

Tags : 

While traveling around the English countryside this summer I took this photo of the trees creating a ‘porthole’ in the road. While we couldn’t see around the corner, we could get a glimpse of what was ahead, through the trees. I do realize this looks more like a path than a road, but there are many

Travel Theme (Distance)

Tags : 

I’m ‘late out the gate’ with this post as I started a new job, but Ailsa’s travel theme this week is distance and I felt that this photo fit the bill. The small beaches you see in the distance can only be reached by swimming out to them from the main shoreline or by propelling yourself

Travel Theme (Tilted)

Tags : 

I tried to find something a little different for Ailsa’s theme this week and stumbled upon this shot from my visit to England a few weeks ago. I realize this looks like the result of the angle of the camera, but it actually was the horse. There were two horses in this particular field and they

Travel Theme (Sculpture)

Tags : 

I saw the following statue in Ilfracombe, Devon last week and while fascinated by it, I thought it was a strange type of statue for a harbour front. As I was taking my photos I looked for a plaque so I could find out exactly what it was all about, but unfortunately there wasn’t one. She is

Back In Time, Vintage Clothes And Highwaymen

Tags : 

On my travels in England I came across this wonderful store in Bromyard, Teagowns and Textiles, which sells vintage clothes and accessories. Some of their items even date back to the Edwardian times. They have some lovely things, but a lot of their clothes are only available in the smaller sizes; relative to the times I assume. If
