City Daily Photo Theme Day - Sensual

Lady Godiva
St. Mary's Guildhall, Coventry

This sculpture is by WC Marshall, mid 19th Century.
The Oriel window dates between 1394 and 1414.
It was rebuilt in 1826 and later restored in 1893.

I posted this photograph in September, 2012, and
thought is was perfect for today's theme day topic.

Museum of the Moon... Coventry Cathedral

This is worth sharing.  It isn't often that you can walk into the
beautiful Coventry Cathedral and find
our Moon sharing the space with you.

 I will leave some links below, if you are
interested in learning more about this exhibit.

The image above is a sculpture made entirely
of lollipop sticks with the Moon beyond.

And, finally (below), the Moon as seen through the
magnificent Cathedral windows.

All photographs taken today with an iPhone 6.

Glazier 1742...

Collegiate Church of St Mary's

I love it when something like this
is pointed out to me.  The windows above and below
show signatures with dates.

The pains of glass are located in the window below.

St Mary's a huge church located right in the center of Warwick -
a short distance from Warwick Castle.

Station Walk

Warwick Road
What you see between Coventry Train Station
and the City Centre.

The Spires just past the mirror architecture,

and plenty of flowers.

The powers that be (in this case, Coventry City Council, I believe),
have done an amazing job.  Even on a very dull day,
this all looks so pretty for those walking between 
town and the train station.

Thistle & Friends

Coombe Country Park

Today at Coombe Country Park
just outside Coventry, England.

The butterfly and the bee/wasp (not sure which) are 
both moving...amazed at the result.

Thatched Roof Thursday #93 - Henley-in-Arden

Warwick Road

Whoopee!  I found another thatched cottage to add to my collection.

It is somewhat hidden from a busy main road.  But here you have it,
a thatched cottage.

Today is CDP Theme Day - Nature

Have a look HERE to see other contributions to theme day photographs.

Rear Window Surprise

Our Lilac Tree, and if you re-focus... music from distant neighbour's garden.

On Saturday evening we could hear fantastic
music coming from one of the houses
behind ours.  Thanks to my camera I
found the source of great live entertainment - 
swing, jazz and more all from this lady. 
What a great voice.
Yes, I did go around the next day and knock on
the door to find out who she was.  Sadly,
no answer.  I'll keep trying and report back later :).

Thatched Roof Thursday Revisited

Stoneleigh Village

This was Thatched Roof Cottage #31 back in
May, 2013.  It looks almost the same now.  
It is for sale with a guide price of £650,000 (ouch!)
for this Grade II Listed home that dates back to 1500.

Nice neighbourhood :).
