In search of the true "workman's cottage" - # 116

Perhaps I should be firmer, and not allow popular, and minority interests to knock me off my course. However, I crave public approval, and will therefore respond to comments and go off in search of a few Workman's cottages around about Richmond. It's going to be a bit of a "cute gardens" and "divine doors and windows" trip, but we will enjoy it; I promise.
For me, again, this is another benefit from the City Daily Photo fever. It drives you out and forces you to look about and notice and discover things that you've overlooked before. Secondly, people from all over get great enjoyment from seeing different things from around the world.


  1. You are so right with your comments. Looking forward to the next one!

    I guess many of us would like to live in one of these houses, once upon a time probably not as fashionable - and perhaps not so nicelooking(?) as today.

  2. Ah, "cute gardens" and "divine doors and windows" ;-)

  3. I agree. Praise and compliments are a driving force that causes all of us to do more than we originally intended to do.

    I like your post today. It is like pulling back the curtain to catch a glimpse of the home your photographed.

    This is the second episode of the Robin feeding the babies. Mom had her head down a throat today.

  4. Popular? Minority interests?!


  5. Delightful workman's cottage. Those pastels and the wisteria are just lovely. Can't wait to see the rest of them.


  6. Hey, there's nothing wrong with quaint, "cute and divine." Keep 'em coming; I, for one, will be delighted and charmed!!

  7. I'm wondering how much the ordinary workman has to earn to afford one of these now.
