I love these fun photos I took of Zach running about and enjoying the sun at Hall Place and Gardens in Bexley :-)

Brooklands Museum-73

Travel Theme: Interior

I’m so glad that Ailsa picked this topic for Travel Theme as it forced me to search my folders for inspiration. I discovered a whole treasure trove of unprocessed photos, from both DSLR and my phone, of Brooklands Museum from almost a year ago! All these images are from the different areas inside the museum and some are the insides of engines and a variety of automobiles, old and new!

My first gallery has some family photos with my friend Sam, her children and her sister, Charlotte’s two boys. Amazing to see Matthew only a couple of months old! I love the photos I got of both Zach and Callum inside the F1 race car :-)

My second gallery is from inside the London Bus Museum which is within the grounds of Brooklands itself. The boys were so excited about this exhibit! It was really hard to get them out again.

The Museum sits on the site of the world’s first purpose-built motor racing circuit, constructed in 1907. Brooklands was the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation, home of Concorde and the site of many engineering and technological achievements throughout eight decades of the 20th century. Of course it’s far more than a simple museum with scores of events held throughout the year! This last gallery shows many of the exhibits from the main interior of this brilliant venue.

Newark Priory with circling birds

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

Newark Priory

Memories held in
Bricks and mortar, ruined yet
Standing steadfast still

 

The rafters are gone
Yet sanctuary remains
Birds flock to her walls

 

On ancient marshland
Cattle graze and chew the cud
Splendour lost on them

Light Through Leaves

Light Through Leaves

Autumn colours bright
Dappling dancing shadows
Soft seductive light

Grapes

Travel Theme: Bountiful

This bountiful harvest of grapes seemed to me to be the perfect thing to photograph and share with you for this week’s theme. I didn’t find this in any vineyard or garden though! No, this heavenly sight is right outside my favourite coffee shop in West Byfleet, a lovely little place called Taylor’s. It’s a joy to sit outside with the Autumn sun glowing on the vines, sipping a dark chocolate mocha!
