I'd organised a photo walk around Castle Combe and that's where these were taken. First thing this morning it was raining so hard that I thought we'd have to cancel but we decided to meet for coffee anyway and were lucky enough to arrive in the village just as it stopped raining and the sun came out. The rain held off for the next hour, so we all managed to get a good selection of photos. Most of the ones I took were for the Winter Photographic Scavenger Hunt but this selection for 5 in 5 was taken as we walked into the village from where we'd parked the car.
I love this sign and have been meaning to photograph it for ages ... and now I have!
Walking up through the main street (simply named 'The Street'!) I saw this house name ... I think I'd feel completely at home living in Reading Room Cottage.
Reading Room Cottage is in this rank of cottages, mainly photographed for the chimney pots.
Taken in the Market Place. You can see the church behind the cottage but unfortunately we couldn't photograph there today as there was a service in progress.
This rank of cottages is on the other side of the Market Place and is where we tried, unsuccessfully, to photograph a robin. It was on the ivy clad wall in the bottom left hand corner of this photo, but it didn't want to play nicely today so we all ended up with blurred shots of it disappearing off the edge of the shot.
Rain stopped play at this stage, so it was back to the pub to share our morning's efforts with each other. It never fails to amaze me how we can walk around together yet all manage to see different things. I was chilled through so sitting in front of a roaring log fire with a huge mug of hot chocolate was a thoroughly pleasant way to round of the morning.
Thanks for organising this photo meme, Sandie.
