Doors of Portobello Road 

Exploring Notting Hill, just over a week ago, we were treated to some gorgeous doorways along this famous, vibrant road.  Let’s take a walk ….



Each of the entrances to these terraced houses have such a lot of individuality and personality.  





And, at No 22, the the former home of George Orwell. 

That’s enough walking.  Time for a cup of tea …. or maybe a gin & tonic.

Nature’s Forces….

 

Although I’m glad I took this photo, I didn’t need it to recall the scene.  The photo was taken from our borrowed car, from a bridge on the outskirts of Ludlow, England way back in 2007.  We were there on a house exchange holiday (which was marvellous, by the way), and had arrived in the town just after some major flooding had caused this damage.  The bridge we were on was also being reinforced, as you can see.  

But this image is absolutely seared onto my memory.  The (literal) suspension of a moment in time……… When I read the theme for this week’s photo challenge, I immediately thought of this.

The Forces of Nature, indeed.   Perhaps the house was built a tad too close to the waterway?
