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 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


Near Moreton-in-Marsh


Welcoming, but we went walking instead


Headstones well worn


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




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



Stay tuned for the Lake District, Yorkshire and Derbyshire
