I didn't have to work yesterday, there was only housework to do at home, but ... I don't like housework and the sun was shining, so I made better use of my time and toddled off to Bath to take some photos for the Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt.
I started off up at Claverton Down, the home of Bath University, to photograph the entrance for No 10 | a college or university.
Next stop was to be a little way down the hill at Claverton Manor but as I turned the corner by the university cricket ground I spotted this, No 9 | a tent.
I carried on down the hill to Claverton Manor and the location of the American Museum so that I could photograph their ticket booth for No 19 | a ticket booth. I had planned to go into the museum as there is a tepee in the grounds but unfortunately everything was closed due to a power failure, so maybe a return visit for that one.
My next stop was Sydney Gardens which is the only remaining eighteenth century pleasure garden in the UK. The first photo is Minerva's Temple and the second one is, I think, the Pavilion, both for No 5 | architectural columns.
Still in Sydney Gardens, and photos of the two cast iron bridges over the canal for No 6 | a metal bridge.
The final photo took me right to the top of Bath to Beechen Cliff, the hill mentioned by Jane Austen in Northanger Abbey. At the top of this hill is Alexandra Park where there are magnificent views over the city and its surrounding hills. This is for No 16 | a panoramic view, taken while standing someplace high in the air.
