Very cute composition Keith (can I call it cute?).

This is actually quite clever - and I like it a lot.

Nice one - Jethro

Thanks Jethro. I knew there was a shot there as soon as I saw it. It was just a matter of shuffling around until it looked right.

I have taken to shuffling recently. Its an age thing!!! Try NOT to keep that up J

Oh - this is special Keith. I love the light and shadows on the arches, and the flagstones. Did you have a cream tea here? The thought of scones, jam and a dollop of clotted cream is making my mouth water. Breakfast is called for!

Cheers, Amelia

We resisted the temptation, Amelia, because we intended going for a pub meal after here. The fact that it was dull outside when I took this (just before the one of Linda looking at the rain) helped because the contrast in sunlight would have killed the shadow detail. Thanks for the kind words.

Yes, Keith, I can see that you were fortunate with the lighting. But mainly you were skillful with the composition: your "shuffling around" worked well. I wish I were in the neighbourhood: I wouldn't resist the temptation for tea!

Thanks Marilyn. It is great when something comes out as you hoped it would, especially with film, where you don't know until after development. Unfortunately the tearoom is undergoing refurbishment so we missed our chance for some time to come.
