Watford High Street
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(19th October 2013)

Shops closed? No one on the High Street. Unusual. I do like the pattern in the brick roadway. Even the simplest things in England are beautiful each in its own way. America is just "get it done and get on with it." Sad.

Pigeons at Watford Pond.

Linda-Mary Sigley(19th October 2013)

Trouble finding grub in winter, ha ha? Cute photo.

Watford
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(19th October 2013)

Excellent composition. Fascinating photo. Yes, looks like a question mark--probably questioning why so few people there attend their parish church. What a shame. England used to be known as the "Isle of Saints."

Vicarage Road Cemetery, Watford, Hertfordshire.

Linda-Mary Sigley(19th October 2013)

A little child--possibly she lost her parent. Yes, a thought provoking image. Excellent.

Watford Hornet
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(19th October 2013)

Oops! It's a hornet! Even stranger. Here we call pest control if we have trouble with hornets. Why a hornet, pray tell?

I agree with Dave. How old is the Green Man? Is he supposed to be an elf or wood sprite? I'm posting pic to Facebook to get members for POE and maybe a couple of tourists.

Linda-Mary Sigley(5th November 2012)

Were the soldiers simply visiting or were they quartered at the castle? We once knew a man whose surname was Cholmondeley; he owned a restaurant in Cincinnati, Ohio.

A picture of Rye
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(7th October 2012)

Great capture & focal point. Oops! The OT book of Wisdom was removed from the King James Bible. Surprised the inscription was not done away with in the 17th C.

Painting of Mermaid Street, Rye, in the snow by Colin Bailey
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(7th October 2012)

Lovely painting of Rye. Mr. Bailey surely should have it lithographed to appear on a calendar or even on Christmas cards.

Rye Harbour. The red tinned roof hut.

4 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(7th October 2012)

John, you purchased this place for 100 GBP? A bargain. I noticed there appears to be 2 raised gardening beds-good for broccoli, brussels sprouts and cauliflower. Yummy veggies.

Alfriston
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(7th October 2012)

Very nice. The old clergyhouse appears to have a recent thatch job as the thatched roof is in perfect condition. Really good capture, Martin.

Banbury, Oxfordshire
4 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(7th October 2012)

Interesting photo. Hard to believe it's heavy overcast and bare trees in May. It appears as to be still wintertime in Banbury.

The Rabbit Room where the 'Inklings' met.
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(5th October 2012)

Great photo. Why is it called "The Rabbit Room?" Should be an historic plaque put up mentioning The Inklings--they're famous.

Haughmond Abbey, Well House
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(5th October 2012)

(There was snow on 11 Sept.?) Yes, an interesting photo. The monks wanted their water without dust & bird droppings in it I'm sure.

Darwin College on the banks of the River Cam , Cambridge
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(14th August 2012)

Darwin was & is a great man. Nice to see a photo of his home. The house to the right looks Calif. contemporary; rather an oddity in England isn't it?

Oh, much clearer view.

Gourdon, Scotland
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(13th August 2012)

Another good pic. Looks as though there might be a fisheries industry here. I see a marina in foreground, but is there a rather curved pier in background or connector bridge?

Crovie, Scotland
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(13th August 2012)

Good composition. Interesting pic. How do vehicles get there? I don't see a road exiting Crovie, unless it's hidden beyond the hill.

A beautiful ruin hidden in some woods at Steinmanhill, Aberdeenshire
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(13th August 2012)

Love it. A secret place only a hiker could find. A watchtower or mill?

Linn o Dee, Aberdeenshire
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(13th August 2012)

Well-framed picture. The tree seems to beckon with its gnarled "arms and hands." Raw beauty.

A view over the lawn
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(11th August 2012)

A ferry? It's a quay so there must be water at other side. I see gorgeous trees and an interesting piece of machinery which seems to have a toothed winch. Picturesque.

Lovely. Happiness over the hill for travellers.

Lavenham, Suffolk
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(11th August 2012)

Extraordinary work. Blended exposures give the appearance of great age under brooding skies. What is a "centre monument?" We, at least in the west, don't have such monuments.

Lavenham, Suffolk
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(11th August 2012)

Cute. 19th C. gingerbread added to peaks of roof; next house appears a bit tipsy, LOL.

Hall Place
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(22nd July 2012)

5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(29th April 2012)

Looking towards the front of the Church.
5 stars
Linda-Mary Sigley(2nd April 2012)

Here we would say one is looking at the back of the church. To us the altar is always termed the front of the church. It is ingrained into Americans. This is a fine photo.

Many hundreds of years old that parish church.
