Weekly photo challenge: Background

april14 001 IMG_0935Oops! I didn’t mean to include myself in the background when I took these two photos 🙂


DSC00627In 2008 I went to Ireland in search of the land of my ancestors. I was looking into their BACKGROUND. The building behind me dates back to the 1100’s – WOW!


DSC00509I don’t think it will be too difficult to guess what is in the background in this photo.


DSC00580 DSC00571If you ever do a bus tour of the Tower of London, make sure you make a mental note of the background where the bus drops you off. I didn’t and then missed the return bus! Fortunately I found my way back to the hotel 😉


DSC00495For an Aussie girl who enjoys writing I couldn’t resist taking this photo with No.1 Fleet Street in the background.

My first and only trip to London was in 2008. I loved every minute of it. I was really taken with the AGE of the place and the history. I’ve included a few of my favourites from the trip. I am experimenting with some new features on the blog – I hope you will bear with me while I learn. I am one who learns best by experimenting. I am not so keen on reading instructions :-). I liked some of them so much that I included them twice 😉

They include the Royal Courts of Justice, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London…
