Photographs: I dabble. I aim and shoot….when I am not writing. Sharing again – lockdown has stopped me doing this.
As you know I love to take photos and quite often they are visual notes for my writing.
But, I also take photos as reminders of places I’ve visited and experiences I’ve had.
Some I use to illustrate my blog and others are just filed away for me and family to look at now and again.
I always take far too many.
Thanks goodness for the digital age.
If I had to take photos on film and have them developed, I’d think twice before shooting a couple of hundred at a time.
These are not in any particular order or even taken at the same time or place, but here goes – let me know what you think.
Oh, and my camera isn’t fancy, often just my phone camera.
I just aim and shoot.
These photos are all taken by me during various visits to places of interest, or on my various walks.
Several visitors here tell me they love my photos which is so kind of them.
They tell me they love the little snippets of history or points of interest that go with each photo.
I must say, I enjoy posting them too.
I thought I’d take a break from writing today, to share some photos. No snippets today, I’m in a visual mood.
I’ve visited Wakehurst Place twice now and simply adore it.
I blogged about one such visit a while back.
You can see more photos and read all about it at http://wp.me/p2dg55-Z0
My visit to Canterbury Cathedral where I visited the tomb of a distant relation, a former Arch-bishop of Canterbury, can be found at http://wp.me/p2dg55-1sO
There are two parts, this is the link to part one.
My visit to Cowdray Park (one time palace) was wonderful too.
So much history and Midhurst was just so pretty.
I’ve written more and posted photos at http://wp.me/p2dg55-28O
Beaulieu House has the most amazing motor museum as well as wonderful gardens and ruins, not to mention the house itself.
I am yet to blog about my visit there.
I have not posted photos of animals before.
I don’t have any but friends owned the Alaskan Malamutes pictured, who are sadly no longer with us.
They were ancient.
Molly, Lola and Simba belong to a relative.
I do hope you have fun looking at these and taking a peep at my blog posts. Let me know.
