photoblog image Cotswold Collages - 9/15

Cotswold Collages - 9/15

I took a lot of photos during our trip to the Cotswolds in early July.  I am now presenting photos of the area in a series of 15 collages over three weeks which I hope you will enjoy.  They have been mixed up a bit to hopefully retain your interest and each individual photo has been processed using Topaz.

Returning once again to Bourton this collage shows a few more of the lovely old stone buildings in the town centre.  Whilst the public toilets (centre) look very old I can assure you they are very modern, and spotlessly clean, inside.

Really like this montage, Brian...all that gorgeous stonework is great to see.

I'll make a note to visit the public toilets if I am ever in Bourton. [grin]
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. Its when you want to visit the toilets and they are closed that the problems start!

The mellow stone work really does come throughin these examples, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, the colour of the stone everywhere there is really attractive.
lovely.
amazing how so much can come out of an area
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob, and this series is only one small corner of the whole Cotswolds area.
This yet again captures the atmosphere of the Cotswold villages and towns and glad to here their toilets are up to scratch.
Brian Walbey: I can't vouch for the Ladies Janet but the Gents was very clean and tidy.
On this sclae they look scenes from the model village Brian.
Brian Walbey: We didn't have time to get to the model village Chad, I'm told it is very good.

A nice collage of different windows- very English the pairs of porcelain dogs, the flowers, Cream Tea, the honeyyellow Cotswold sandstones ...- oh yes, extraordinary 'pubic conveniences' in a building which might have been formerly a little chapel! If I were a photographer, I would take a series about toilets- outside and inside- there are some differences!
Brian Walbey: I think I might get arrested if I started taking pictures in Public Toilets Philine but thanks for the rest of your very nice comment.

Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Jennie.
