Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

A little late to the game with this challenge. Visiting Nunton Cemetery, I came across these little grave stones. Not for children or pets, they are what the poorest of Victorian society used to mark their final resting place. I showed them to Year 10; we’re doing Christmas Carol: just got to the graveyard scene. […]

Weekly photo challenge: Windows

Short post from me this week. My inspiration comes from the weekly photo challenges, which I like to dip into from time to time. This week’s inspiration is windows. I took this in March time before we moved from Southend. Taken from the Southchurch underpass, it was one of those point, click, and hope moments

Holiday 26

Was a day out to Rhyl I remember it fondly as a place wherr cars crawled in queues for miles to get into. Alas no more. Since the Sunlife Centre’s demise, the place was empty. Rolling sandy beaches devoid of life stretched for miles. There were seagulls and starlings and a few hardy tourists braving […]
