Phoneography Challenge: My Neighbourhood

10 Mar

Like many others, I have a mobile phone to text and talk but it stays in my pocket. My lovely little CanonS100, however, is always in my hand and so I was delighted that I don’t have to use a phone to join in this week’s challenge.The following photos take you on a circular walk from our house and were all taken in the last few months.

    Hi ,
    I think that your neighborhood is lovely! I love the old cemetery and the dragon on the roof :).
    I am also a “black box girl” but am getting out of my comfort zone to use my hubby’s iphone.
    I still prefer my Nikon :).

      Thank you! I’ve taken a few photos on my phone but it’s not an iphone and the quality isn’t there. Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

    I love snapping around with my phone. I haven’t got a camera so it has really come in useful. Lovely set here!

    These are GREAT. I really like them, Sally. Either you are a natural at taking photos, or the world really IS this blooming beautiful 🙂

    What fascinating neighborhood. I especially like the griffin! Can’t imagine how old he is.

      Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. The houses were built around the turn of the century 1890 – 1905 so I guess they are over 100 years old! 🙂

    Beautiful shots! That door looks as if a Hobbit should be coming out to ask me in for tea …

      I think we do – and that’s all within minutes. Fifteen more in the car and we are at the coast with all the glories to be found there.
      All the best to you 🙂
