Best of the Cotswolds 4/7

When I posted my three week set of collages of the Cotswolds in August/September several of you said you would like to see several of the images full size so I make no apology for repeating those ones and a couple of my more favourite ones from the set.

Bourton on the Water is full of visitors but these two ladies were serving on a charity stall in the town centre and again is one of my favourite shots from the visit.

Is the picture of the two nags on the bench symbolic of something Brian smile
Brian Walbey: We seem to remember the stall was for a donkey sanctuary Tony.
Lovely Brian ... couple of possible variations:
1. Convert to black and white

2. Crop out the picture and soft toys on the right.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. I think #1 might work but if I crop as #2 it might leave the lady too close to the edge, anyway I will give it a try.
Lovely shot of two characters!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.

A fine study of village people Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Chris.
This is a nice record of village selling. Those two ladies look like characters - pillars of the community.

Was the charity a donkey sanctuary?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila. We think their stall was for a donkey sanctuary but there were some stalls for the local church as well.
I don't know why but a certain Little Britain sketch comes to mind.
Brian Walbey: I must admit to not watching that programme very frequently Chad.

Great shot Brian - they look like they have stepped straight out of Miss Marple or Midsomer Murders!
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Ingrid, real country people.
Two characters! Great capture Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
I wonder about the picture of the two donkeys. Love the expressions on the gossiping ladies.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. We seem to remember their stall was for a donkey sanctuary.
Excellent! They look like they have a few stories to tell.
Brian Walbey: They could be going over the latest gossip hayley, you know what some ladies are smile
Great character shot Brian. They are deep in conversation.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron. I bet one is saying, "Have you heard about Mrs.Jones?" smile
Excellent shot Brian, They are having a good natter.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda, a good natter as ladies do.

"charity stall"- this is very English! Perhaps I had bought the photo of the two donkeys, for it reminds me of my blind donkey I had once as pupil adopted in England, the donkey had worked very hard in the coal mines of Wales and then received his bread of charity on a farm in South England. I think all donkeys look very similar! A nice snapshot!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. The donkey picture is there because the stall is a charity stall for a donkey sanctuary.

I'm assuming from the photo pinned to the front of their stand that they were raising money for a donkey sanctuary; I hope they were successful. Busy chatting away though.. talking the hind legs off a donkey?
Brian Walbey: Smile. Yes it was a charity stall Alan. I think they were discussing Mrs Brown from the next stall smile
Great shot Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much RS.
