Canterbury


I thought I'd posted this shot - it's one of the little streets between the High Street and the cathedral. I'm enjoying a coffee hence the pole in front of the lens (must get some photo taking tips from Pyk!). The pub on the right is The City Arms and given to be one of the best town pubs in the county and there are a number of cafes and eateries along this lane. At the top is the High Street. Notice the cobbles and the way the first flooor rooms overhang the ground floor frontage in order to "steal" a little more space, this is one of the older parts of town and luckily survived onslaughts by Goering's town redevelopment plans during the 1940's and later and far less sympathetic work by the local council town planning department - evidence of their handiwork is sadly available elsewhere.

9 careful considerations:

What a gorgeous spot to have a rest and watch the people go by. It reminds me of Harry Potter too ... anyway.... lol

It's truly lovely and there are always interesting faces to watch. Not seen Harry Potter there yet but I'll keep an eye out for him :-)

Ah but the pole and the umbrella have nicely framed and given emphasis to the women in the middle. :-)

Kat - yes, that was my first thought, too! I was focused on the pic loading, rather than the text, & didn't think "where's that?" but "who's that?"

Nogbad said...

Ah that may be a feature of the editing. The original includes the person I was having coffee with but she wouldn't thank me for publishing her photo on the web without permission. And I thought the view of the lane would interest this audience more :-)

But was the new hairdo in it? And is that a face lift I see? A smile and glasses - HP extra? No - not Hewlett Packard! Talking of HP.........when you're passing........(sorry - that one's for Nog the Bog only)

Nogbad said...

Sorry Annarid - ya got me. When I'm passing where?

Nogbad said...

(Loud sound of penny dropping) You still got problems with that PC then Anna?

annarid said...

Sorry I got your name wrong - Nogbad not Nog the Bog. Re: Pennies from Heaven - YES!!! I can't email out but can receive incoming mail. However, I really think I've found my forte in life - blagging, blabbing, blobbing and blogging. What more could one wish for? Oh the simple things.....

Seriously - you look well
