Cotswold Collages - 12/15

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.

The final collage in this series, from the town of Broadway, features a few of the buildings in the centre, rather than the people around about that I included in the other two collages. Whilst it was busy there didn't seem to be quite as many visitors there as there was at Bourton-on-the-Water.

You have captured the twee commerciality of this place wonderfully Brian
Brian Walbey: That seems to be the only way that they make a living here Chad.
Looks interesting, nice collage, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, it is a nice place, plenty of "lady type" shops!
another excellent montage...
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Rob.
Loads in enjoy in this, Brian. I expect shop prices were quite high?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. As always, the prices reflect the touristy bit in the shops.

Nice collage, I like those little shops in England which don't have any neon-lights, only letter signs- oh, table manners!- can the people learn how to use the etiquette while dining? Many persons have terrible table manners in our country! The Treasure Trove might surely sell some kitsch, too- as the three stooges and me were in Buckfast Abbey we saw such a shop full of kitschy thingies, but, sorry, it must not be!
Brian Walbey: You always get kitschy sort of shops in touristy areas Philine, I think all over the world to be honest.
I enjoy visiting new places through your collages Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Nice series Brian. The area has its own distinctiveness that you have shown.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet. We only visited one small corner of the area, lots more to do yet.
I just love the colour of the stonework Brian...A nice place to visit.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron, it is a lovely area to visit.
Just browsed your present series Brian. I think you will be called Montage man from now onwards. Lovely stuff by the way.
