A Photostory Friday - West Walls

Visit MamaGeek and Cecily, creators of Photo Story Friday.

walking back to the car from the church
 where my daughter 
had been performing in the senior choir

the sun was shining
in blue skies and I was
remembering how Merisi seems to 
find such great shots upon her walks

I thought I would try and look with her eye
for interesting buildings, views and reflections

these are the results of my 15 minute walk along West Walls
 the oldest street in the city which nestles along the city wall

view through leaded church window

(Don't assume all of Carlisle is like this, I also have pics of grafitti walls and boarded up buildings. These are pics of the older parts in Carlisle, my adopted home town)

  4. Those are very interesting images, Saz - You may need some of that museum space shortly, to have your own art exhibition, at this rate! xxx

  5. Wow! It must be wonderful to live in such a city with sites so beautiful! I can feel the warmth from the walls of the buildings. It's as if I can feel myself standing there by the wall with the sun in my face, smelling the moss from the bricks. You did an awesome job with the symetry of the trees, the walls, the windows and the shadows.

    Maybe you should be a photographer.
    Hmmm....

  15. Lovely pictures. (why are everyones pictures better than mine! Pardon my ignorance but is West Walls part of Newcastle? (Or Carlisle) I have never stopped in either yet do pieces for a motor mag!

  16. These are lovely.

    I'm always struck by how much I like looking at other people's parts of the world, especially their close neighborhoods. No doubt, some of this is just "normal" to your eye. But it is gripping to mine. I'll have to do a similar walkabout in my own neighborhood, and share the results. Thanks for the inspiration!

  23. What beautiful pics!

    At least part of Carlisle looks like that. Perhaps you should post the graffiti parts too....just for contrast.

  25. There are some lovely areas of Carlisle - but I have seen the grafitti also!
    I thought the buildings looked a bit familiar! (Born and bred cumbrian.)

    Great shots and fantastic Sunday Roast at David's!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
