    Distorted reality

    A convex (or concave?) mirror in a national trust place I visited recently. You know what they say, it all depends on trough what lens (or mirror) you look at things. I should start applying this more often to how I see things recently. I will post more pictures of that house soon. It is…

  • Lake district

    Lake district

    It feels like yesterday, but I have checked and… It was almost last year when I visited Lake District with my daughter. We stayed in a small cosy cottage in a village called Cark. What I did not know when I rented it was that the place was a bit out of the actual park.…

  • Granchester

    Granchester

    I liked a lot the surroundings of where I lived a few months ago. Close to me I had Granchester, a very nice place for walks, or just have a tea (I prefer coffee) in the Orchard, a very famous place visited in the past by famous people. They say Granchester has the biggest density of Nobel…

  • Dunwich

    Dunwich

    A small gallery of pictures I took in Dunwich Heath, in Suffolk coast, a while ago. As usually happens, the weather wasn’t very nice. I yet have to visit one of this coast places with good weather. Maybe in Summer? One thing that caught me by surprise was the Sizewell nuclear power station. I had no idea…

    Ok, gardening. In the long list of things that I have no idea about, gardening is one of them. And here in the UK is a very appreciated thing. Houses have a garden, and even if you live in a flat, in a big city like London, you may know someone with access to an allotment. It’s…

  • Stonehenge

    Stonehenge

    There must be millions of pictures of this place already. But I wanted to visit it since I was a child. You know, when I was a child I was a firmly believer in UFOs, paranormal activities, conspiracy theories. You name it. Stonehenge was the subject of a lot of books and documentaries I read…

  • Lavenham

    Lavenham

    Some pictures from the small village of Lavenham. A really picturesque place, just an hour ride from Cambridge. It is full of old crooked and timbered houses. The pub where we had lunch had also what looked like a really old carpet.

  • Mam Tor

    Mam Tor

    Here are some pictures I took while we climbed Mam Tor, a popular hill in the Edale Valley area. It is relatively easy to go up there, more if you just start your walk from the national trust owned car park down the road. From the top of the hill you can continue some popular…

    Sorry for the lack of updates in the past week, I’ve been quite busy visiting Peak District, a national park in UK. I arrived home just yesterday with a bunch of pictures I need to edit and process. I will post the best ones here soon. In the meantime here is a couple more black and white…
