Friendly Friday – Balconies

Theatre Royal

For my 60th back in 2018, my hubby arranged for us to go to the West End and see 42nd Street at the Theatre Royal, in Drury Lane.  And I thought the balconies of the theatre would be an ideal image for this challenge.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Changing Seasons

Trumpet Creeper - Campsis

A photograph of a trumpet creeper flower also knows as Campsis photographed at Sissinghurst Castle in Kent. Yesterday I found an amazing app called Picture This and it allows me to find the names of the flowers I am processing. The app is available for Android, and IOS and so far has been very useful.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Stone

Bayham Old Abbey

A monochrome photograph of a set of arches at Bayham Old Abbey which is on the Kent and Sussex border.

Bayham Old Abbey is an English Heritage property, located near Lamberhurst, Kent, England. Founded c. 1207 through a combination of the failing Premonstratensian monasteries of Otham and Brockley, Bayham functioned as an abbey until its dissolution in the 16th century. The ruins were partially modified in the late 18th century, to provide a better landscape feature during landscaping of the new Bayham Abbey mansion park, and were donated to the state in 1961.

Photo for the Week – 38 -China

Anyone for Tea

The topic this week is China. For my choice, I photographed this beautiful pink and white bone china teapot at Chiddingstone Castle.

So for your submission this week, it can be either crockery or anything oriental. Maybe a photograph of a trip to China. As long as it reflects China in one form or another, the task this week is very varied.
