Photo 101 : Day 19 – Double

Chapel of St.George

Chapel of St.George

These stained glass windows in Chichester Cathedral may have different pictures in each one, but apart from that they are similar in every way, in fact doubles!


Mr Snowman and his little brother!

Mr Snowman and his little brother!

When I visited my local garden centre, the two brothers above were waiting  to greet me at the door, they are very cute, and for the next month I am sure we will see plenty of the Snowman family in various places.



Photo 101 : Day 18 – Edge

You have so many choices!

My photo today is an evening shot taken in the centre of Westport, County Mayo – it gives me the edge, with a lot of options for nice places to visit.

The next photo of one of the places mentioned on the sign post – Croagh Patrick – the mountain that overlooks Westport, and which you can see from most parts of the town – I think it also fits the challenge of having the edge!

Old telephone box

Old telephone box

The old telephone box, pictured above, is something that is not seen or used very much anymore, with practically everyone now having their own mobile phone, which makes communication so much easier. I can remember spending lots of time in telephone boxes when growing up, or queuing outside one while the person in the box holds a long conversation with their friend/lover/parent or whatever.   Even worse was the frustration of finding the right change, walking to the nearest phone box, only to find that it was out of order or worse still, that the handpiece was missing or broken….Oh the joys of the olden days!!!

I took this photo last night, but I didn’t check inside the booth, so I am not sure if it is still a working telephone, or just there as a reminder of things past.

Photo 101 : Day 16 – Treasure

My grandfather's clock

An old Grandfather Clock at Westport House, Co Mayo.

My grandfather’s clock was too tall for the shelf
So it stood ninety years on the floor
It was taller by half than the old man himself
Though it weighed not a pennyweight more

It was bought on the morn of the day that he was born
And was always his treasure and pride
But it stopped, short never to go again
When the old man died

Weekly Photo Challenge : Angular

My ‘angular’ photos are of two churches in Italy,  you will often see a very elaborate tiled roof on a church, with even the windows, or air vents, also incorporated into the tiled design.   The doorway of the church in Riva del Garda is also very symmetrical and angled.

On a trip to a winery, there were a lot of angles and interesting shapes, from the sign outside, to the wine barrels and old dusty bottles, lying at right angles to the frames they were maturing in.
