City Daily Photo Theme Day - Rock and Roll

Belgrade Theatre, Coventry
Rock 'n' Roll with Elvis


No, this isn't Elvis photographed here.  
 This is Ben Portsmouth (from the UK)
performing as Elvis Presley in his show,
'The King Is Back'.


 I feel so lucky to have seen Elvis Presley
perform twice in Hawaii many years ago.
The show at the Belgrade Theatre brought back happy memories.


 In August, 2012, Ben Portsmouth made history when
he won the 'Worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist'
contest in Memphis.  He is the only artist from
outside the USA to win this title.


 We enjoyed the show!


So here's my take on 'Rock and Roll' Theme -
An Elvis tribute show seen in March, 2017.

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...

...at 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
Warwick


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.
