Walled Garden, Attingham Park
He who lives my house has a habit of walking into my shots so I have quite a file of Graham-from-behind photos. I rather like this one though, mainly because the truncated wintery view of the walled garden probably wouldn’t have added up to much if he hadn’t stopped for a moment’s contemplation.
Here are some more ‘back’ views come upon during Farrell expeditions around Much Wenlock:
The path from Wenlock Edge behind the house
Field path to Bradley Farm
The lane behind Wenlock Priory
The Linden Walk with passing speed-walker
On Wenlock Edge looking towards Ironbridge Power Station
A ‘now what’s she doing look’ on the old railway line

an interesting collage, he puts things into perspective a bit
Ha! Thanks for that, Beth. A scenic addition perhaps 🤔
Super pics and loved the added interest:). The lane behind Wenlock Priory is beautiful. Enjoy the weekend. Janet 🙂
A good weekend to you too, Janet.
Brings more feeling to the photos in black & white.
Thank you, Teresa. This was my thought too.
That would be me too. 😀 😀 Terrific photo. 😀
Thanks, Cee. Good to have you in the rear guard too 🙂
My OH is always ahead of me too! They do come in useful for a sense of scale at times 😊
My thought too re scale 🙂
Sometimes it’s flipping annoying though. (Oops. Should I admit this.)
other way round with us!
Oh, great set!
Thanks, Sue 🙂
I like a figure in the distance!
There’s a lot to be said for it.
I like that we’re chuckling here i.e. in the same time zone, as it were.
But we are in the same time zone??
I have a similar collection of shots: maybe it’s a man thing? I love the silvery cast on the images Tish.
Thank you for liking my silvery cast, Su. It seems to give monochrome a little lift. And as to man things, I think it probably is. Women like to meander and study things in context while chaps forge ahead on a mission; something to do with our old hunter-gatherer days I posit – naturally at the risk of sounding sexist.
I think you may be right Tish. Is it sexist to observe difference when there’s no judgement being applied?
oh crikey MrB and I are the other way round in terms of walking speeds, we both though study in slow time!
This morning it was He who was bringing up the rear. Mind you I was walking faster than usual because I’d just been bitten by a dog (mildly) and I was trying to come to terms with the assault. However I did get some wonderful shots of Him contemplating the ocean. I’m off to see what happens if I B&W them!
Oh now that sounds v. promising. I love catching people watching the sea, and such scenes often work v. well in b & w. Sorry about the canine assault though.
Wonderful!!! I never get sick of sea shots and even if I did this would make me well again!!!
Sea medicine – I like it.
What a wonderful series, and such a great model (most of the time) 😀
beautiful b/w series, Tish. i smile here because it is more like my hubby and i; especially the last photo. 🙂 🙂
My wife snaps pictures sometimes. I give her the “now what’s she doing look” quite a bit.
Don does that to me all the time! In almost all of these I think Graham adds to the shot, giving perspective, and a human feel that allows the viewer to imagine themselves there more easily.
I’m glad you think that, Alison. Apart from the first shot, I was wanting to give people a sense of ‘Wenlock’. Thank you.
I love these figures in a landscape, given a feel of the past in black and white.
I’m thinking there’s a strand of nostalgia in the shots. Either that or our Much Wenlock time warp.
Hi Tish, Happy Sunday to you! 🙂
While reading your post and looking at your wonderful pictures, I had a thought, is the path behind the house the one you take to get to the allotment? Just kind of visualizing your journey to the allotment from home.
Hello Mitch – and in upper and lower cases! How are you? I didn’t include the allotment path in this sequence. It runs parallel to the back garden. Last shot in this post: https://tishfarrell.com/tag/to-and-from-the-allotment/
And also here. The gap in the hedge into the allotment is under the first ash tree:
These are all great pics.
All spectacular, but that first one? Bravo! 😀 … well photobombed, Graham! 😀
Thanks, Widders. As to being photobombed, G doesn’t yet know he’s been worldwide ‘posted’ too 🙄
Oh-oh … that’s going to be an interesting conversation! 😀
I can relate. I have a lot of Frank from the back as he is always walking ahead of me. 🙂
It can be a touch frustrating at times. On the other hand it’s good to keep them in one’s sight lines 🙂 🙂
