Budleigh blue plaque

Situated on Fore Street Hill in Budleigh Salterton is a blue plaque on a wall telling all that Joyce Dennys (1893-1991) lived in this house in her later years. Two lions guard the gateposts. She was a poet, artist, illustrator, playwright.

Potentially a very attractive shot, but spoiled by the big item of street furniture at the lower left of the frame.

Thanks for the comment, Edward. However, the "big item of street furniture in the lower left of the frame" is in fact the right hand gatepost of an access drive to the property next door. From the angle I was sat in my mobility scooter and inability to reposition because of parked cars, it would have meant cutting out the left of the white house.

Apologies for my misinterpretation, Mobscooter. I can understand that it's not always possible to get to the best vantage point when you are in your mobility scooter. I suppose you could partially crop off the gatepost, but this would also take out some of the house. There's not much else that can be done without resorting to Photoshop.

No need to apologise, Edward, you made a fair comment. Had I moved further down the street I could have paused to take a more full frontal shot - but then I would lose most of the right cliff/sea view. We live and learn all the time. No offence taken.

I really like this shot and the atmosphere it creates with the extremely low light and subtle blue/mauve colours and glimpse of sea. Like the framing too. Excellent.
