The Globe Theatre Gates

The gates of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre are too pretty to just walk past without taking a closer look.

End of summer and a return to blogging

After two months of blogging I am back and ready to hit the blogosphere!

August and September proved to be busy months for us. We had friends visiting us from the UK for three weeks, so we took them to Jasper (Alberta), had days out and about and had fun just hanging out. This was followed by a spontaneous trip with my other half to Las Vegas (thankfully we had left the city a few days prior to the terrible events that unfolded last Sunday).

So, plenty of photos and stories to share from those summer adventures and I am still (yes, still!) working on photos from my earlier trip to London, as well as finalizing those taken on our trip to the Dominican Republic prior to that.

My last blog post was in August and was part of my London series. I am still in two minds on whether to continue with this series, or jump to the summer adventures and revisit London later. In any case, regular blogging has resumed!

Baker Street Tube Station

This Tube Station has been photographed many times, and no doubt you will have seen it somewhere on your social media feeds (I know I have seen it a dozen or so times on Instagram and Pinterest).

I could not leave Baker Street without taking my own version of this often photographed station.

More streets

This street offers a view of the St Nicolai church in Hameln, Germany. A you can see, this was taken last autumn, and I think the yellow leaves really set of the old brickwork of the church very well.

Bückeburg Palace

The palace of Bückeburg is the residence of the princes of Schaumburg-Lippe in Lower Saxony. It’s history spans over 700 years and last October I visited this beautiful building for the first time, despite the fact that it is only an hours drive from where I was brought up (shame on me!).

I found this gated little street on our day trip to Bückeburg, Lower Saxony, Germany in October last year. Wonder if the gate is locked; I never did try it!
