Through My Lens – The Cotswolds

Through My Lens – The Cotswolds

I’ve often said that when I walk off a plane, I want to know I’m in a foreign country.  In other words I prefer traveling off the beaten path, in a place where English is not the first language, where the culture and aspects of life are different, unique, bordering on the exotic, and sometimes even chaotic.  Traveling to England certainly doesn’t fit this image, but as someone who enjoys hearing stories from the locals, meeting unusual people, and photographing landscapes and the chance encounters on the street,  this destination was perfect for me.

Here’s my story told through my lens.

SPRING

Spring in the Cotswolds = bluebells

 

Seven friends walking a well-traveled path

 

The benefit of the climb was being able to ………..

 

Admire the view

 

See all the new families

 

And watch the changing colors under threatening skies


THE CHURCHES

Near Moreton-in-Marsh

 

Welcoming, but we went walking instead

 

Headstones well worn

NATIONAL TRUST PROPERTIES

The same family lived in Chastleton House from 1607 until 1991

 

A rare peek into a Jacobean Gentry House

 

Reeking of class

 

Snowshill Manor filled with a lifetime collection of Charles Paget Wade

 

THE PEOPLE

 

Outdoor market in Moreton-in-Marsh

 

Relaxing at Tilley’s Tea House

 

The pub for fish and chips and a pint of Guinness

 

Shopping for a new hair color, perhaps

 

A bookseller at Stroud’s farmers market

 

THE TREES


Stay tuned for the Lake District, Yorkshire and Derbyshire
