These days its nigh on impossible for children to get up close to Formula One cars.  Life was very different when my brother and I were children.  The sport isn’t going in a direction that makes me happy as a life long fan.  It’s so much about money these days… Continue reading »

I was in Birmingham last Sunday, a city that has changed so much over the years I’ve visited it.  I love architecture, old and new.  Buildings fascinate me and I wish I had the design flair to come up with some of their designs.  It was the first time I’d seen Grand Central… Continue reading »

Monkey and I both love Stowe Landscape Gardens as you all know.  I’ll be sharing a post on our most recent adventures there later in the week, but I thought this photograph worked perfectly as a ‘Silent Sunday’ shot. I love Swans, I could stand and watch them for hours.  There… Continue reading »

We visited Thinktank in Birmingham a couple of weeks ago.  Monkey loved it, and I’m sure we’ll be back to explore again at some point when the outside attractions are open again. We found this handsome chap lurking around on one of the floors. You can imagine eyes in those… Continue reading »

Chimneys at Waddesdon Manor in Black and White

The B&W Photography Project Week 81 and this week it’s all about looking up.  We’re lucky enough to live pretty close to Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire and the manor house is stunning.  You really do have to keep looking up to admire the intricate stonework, the details are just beautiful.

Stone Face at Waddesdon Manor Silent Sunday My Sunday Photo 070216

I do love stonework in case you hadn’t guessed.  Sometimes there are details that are calling out to be photographed.   I wonder what he’s shouting out?  Or may be he is yawning?  What do you think?
