Good sketching spots…one of these days:)
I agree about the sketching. You need a good spot to sit
I love it out there! Lovely…
You do! Graham looks quite comfortable 😉💕💕
he’s good at lounging!
I know someone else like that 🤣🤣
Surely not 🙂
He’s scarcely budged all day! Says he’s aching from rowing a kajak the other day. Poor old soldier 🙂 🙂 Off for a short walk and tea with friends soon. 6000 steps = cake, he reckons!
Ah well. Sounds like a rest is well deserved. And cake is always needed these days.
I love Wenlock Priory
It is a treasure. Lots of decay!
Yes you do.
I think I’d choose the Priory – perhaps the church green. Linden Field looks much too cold and I’d probably get my butt wet.
Great shots here.
Hello, Thom. Wet butts are definitely to be avoided.
beautiful images, Tish. i’m so drawn to the priory. 🙂 🙂
It’s such a special place, Lola.
I love the circle bench around the tree 😀 Nice post for this week 😀
Thanks, Cee. That circular seat is such an asset.
B&W makes these images special, Tish. I’m wondering why anyone put picnic tables at such an angle, though. Seems food and people would both fall off. 🙂
Ha! A case of extreme picnicking perhaps.
That’s for sure! 🙂
Beautiful! I love black and white photography!
Thank you, Kendall. You can probably tell that I love it too!
Welcome and yes!
You do indeed, and they look good in B&W. Lovely how they showcase places you have made so familiar. At Potato Point, at least on the beach, it’s rocks (with the danger of wave attack) or sand (with the ageing lack of grace in rising) or bring-your-own (and risk sinking down in the sand.)
Ah, but it’s always so good to have a handy beach even if there is nowhere to sit.
I certainly won’t argue with that!
Love the priory. So much history… Take care Tish.
Hello, Brian. Lovely of you to keep dropping in with kind greetings. You take care too. We seem to be heading into a new phase of madness.
And brexit is back with another Dominic at the helm. Bojo’s instructions seem to be very clear. No deal. Then he’ll sign a deal – on his knees – with the Tramp. tsss.
For some reason Ravel’s opera ‘L’enfant et les sortilèges’ comes to mind, but will we ‘toys’ rebel against the noxious child. Seems unlikely.
Well, well. I am impressed. Had never heard of it. And lyrics by Colette to top it all. French must indeed be your second language. 😉
Unlikely? Yes, I’m afraid. Sigh.
Ravel and Colette – two of my all time favourite creators. I should try reading her in French. That would be a marvellous diversion from all the nonsense, though doubtless a bit of a struggle.
You surprise every time Memsahib. 👍🏻
Colette? Read her ages ago. Still have a few books on my shelves. That’s an idea.
I’m rather fond of her autobiographical works ‘My mother’s house’ and ‘Sido’. In fact just looking out my copy, I see it was priced 450 shillings so I must have bought it in Nairobi. Oh the strange connection of things.
Don’t have those. Have Dialogues de bêtes et La chatte. Bought in Ethiopia for 2.25 Ethiopian $. LOL. The connection of things. 🤣
Now, 450 shillings? So much inflation. I bought my Gerald Durrell’s at a bookstore near or on Kimathi street for six bob a piece…
Kwaheri sassa memsahib.
They all look like they’ve been well sat upon too. 🙂
You do indeed! Lovely collection of benches! A very atmospheric series, Tish.
My favourite are the arches at the Priory.
Thank you, Ju-Lyn. That’s my favourite too – this week anyway 🙂
I like how you roll, Tish!
You have PERFECT places to sit in Much Wenlock 🙂
We are so very lucky, aren’t we.
Feels like I have walked into an art show, wonderful
Thank you, Becky.
Missed this. Pardonez moi as they say in Wales. Mr G looks very chilled, and the Linden Field looks even chillier!
Thanks, Ark. G is v. good at doing ‘chilled’.
Someone should host a bench challenge 🙄 Love Windmill Hill.
Now I wonder who that would be 🙂
What a lovely place to live. In LA you go miles without seeing a bench. No wonder no one walks.
We are indeed very lucky, Stephen. Wenlock has lots of assets (and seats).
Yes. And the seats are good for the assets!
