Richmond upon Thames: the view from London's "Arcadia" along the River Thames in Southwest London.
Well this is a great shot but I'm bummed about the sticks. Get to working on it. The challenge will give you something to do! I expect to see them tomorrow!V
You can never take the School M'am out of some southern chicky-babes!!That looks like a powerful vac for restoration work! The light is a bit overwhelming for my tender eyes, but I like the sepia effect.
Ah-ha, I thought the walking sticks would be difficult! Keep thinking - else you'll have Virginia (and me) after you...!I love the concentration and care one feels looking at this shot. This comes across with all your wonderful Ham House shots.
Hi Stuart - nice shot - are you back at HH then?
Oo ... yes ... did not think to take this image to its logical extreme.So ... are you?
Damn straight S,Get on it. I"m cracking the whip from across the pond! :)V
I've just stumbled across your blog and am delighted to have found it. I'm a great fan of Richmond: have stayed there many times, the longest was in 1972, three months up on Richmond Hill. Also devoted to Ham House, so much so that I set one of my murder mysteries there.I shall keep an eye on your site. Thanks for creating it. Cheers, Brian
Hi Stuart! I take it as Vermeer, one I love!!Great shot!!Recovering for the beer at LHR?Blogtrotter 2 is still in Jamaica; reggae but no rhum... Enjoy and have a great weekend!!
Magnificent, thanks for sharing!
So how are the 'stick shots' coming along? Got anything to show me? Hummm???? :)V ( the School Ma'am! HA)
Was going to post a comment on the Loo pic above but scrolled down and saw this - a great portrait of a woman at work and the detail is simply lovely.
Your reference to Vermeer and the light is definitely appropriate!
