Romance at a restored chateau in Bohemia
Looking from a decaying area (about to be re-developed) to the Royal Bank of Scotland HQ in Bristol. Compare and contrast!
A tiny portion of the inside of yesterday’s Red Door. I particularly liked the contrasting soft green velvet curtain used to keep in the warmth and the design of the door knob.
This is one of the entrances to Holy Trinity Church in Trowbridge. I think a red door is most unusual for a church and was struck how it matched the berries of the holly tree nearby.
It seemed an apt beginning to the Forgotten Carols workshop I went to on Saturday 🙂
The outside of the HSBC in Devizes has some amazing carvings both at the entrance (as seen here) and on the sides of the building. I’m not sure whether it’s stonework or moulded plasterwork. Whichever it is, it’s stunning.
This ties in with the post about my garden visit over at Veg Plotting today.
This building is at the top of a tiny little road leading off from Station Hill which goes down into town. I think it’s quite old, though that might be deceptive because it’s also seen better days.
I like the textures though – and the juxtaposition with the road sign. By the way it’s been placed, it seems the sign goes with the building rather than the road.
This is the nearest shop to where I live – just a few minutes walk away. In view of what’s sold there, I thought it’d be ironic to photograph it when it was closed.
However, it doesn’t seem to be open during the day either. We need some new doors for downstairs, and wanting to support our nearest and local business popped along there to see what they have on offer. No-one was there when we went in apart from a man working in the adjacent workshop. Although we made ourselves known to him, he didn’t come into the shop to help us make a choice.
So we took our choice elsewhere to the not so local, national business in Swindon – B & Q – where a most helpful man who specialises in doors soon ordered just what we wanted.
