One Word Sunday: Reverse

A section of High Street, Southampton reversed in a store window early yesterday morning. I was rather amused by the elderly gentleman stood in the street while appearing to be engrossed in his smartphone.

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Reverse prompt.

Drain the Colour

A couple of selective colour treatments for the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Drain the Colour prompt.

I thought the mood of the two images made them ideal for draining the colour.

Nantwich town square

My Travel Tuesday blog post this week is traveling back to the market town of Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England in the mid 1980s.

This is part of the town square and some of the buildings surrounding it. Known locally as The Square it’s the center of the oldest part of the town. The town has one of the highest concentrations of listed buildings in England with lots of good examples of Tudor and Georgian architecture.

A fire in December of 1583 destroyed most of the town to the east of the River Weaver which runs through the town.
