Weathered Wall

A Weathered Wall….

Solid, standing the test of time and enduring all that the weather can throw at it.

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Corners

Holkham Hall

The Marble Hall, Holkham Hall, Norfolk

There are plenty of corners, curves and angles (and a few hidey holes) in the majestic Marble Hall.  It really is spectacular and a photo does little to show the true scale…..even a Grand Piano tucked away in one corner looks rather small.

Just thought that this would be a good submission for this weeks Black & White Photo Challenge – CORNERS

Wordless Wednesday…Favourite Places


It is a New Year, so in these dark months we can start planning this years trips. Perhaps this is best done by reflecting on past favourite locations a little further away from home…next Wednesday another travel reflection.

Location:-  Helsinki, Finland.  To represent the city of Helsinki I thought that the Lutheran Cathedral was an appropriate image.
