P Is For Private...

...or even 'peering' into a 'private' tennis club today with
the most amazing back drop of Warwick Castle.  


P could also be for an annoying 'post'.  What a photo (below) 
this would be if that lamp post was positioned somewhere else.


Ten minutes from Coventry is the most wonderful town of
Warwick.  Warwick is celebrating 1100th anniversary this year.  
That's right!  In 914 the first fortified dwelling was built here.
William the Conqueror founded Warwick Castle in 1068.

Tomorrow is CDP's Theme Day - Squares.  See you tomorrow :).

Those are both beautiful shots. Posts get on my nerves when photographing but that one isn't too bad. Carver, ABCW-Team

I'm always having problems with posts and overhead wires! Great pics though.

WHOA 1068--amazing castle. How odd it is to see the modern tennis courts and club adjacent to the castle.

Exclusive looking tennis club, very scenic place to knock a few balls around!

We can cut the posts down, right?

Beautiful castle, Lauren. It always strikes me about Europe how old things are... a thousand plus years of history, and then when we talk about an old building here, over in Europe it'd be considered brand new.

Jack said...

Very fine place. (And, next time, skoosh down just a little to the left and the post will be out of the frame.) 1100 years old? Some days that is how I feel.

Wouldn't it be nice to climb to the top of that turret?

Lamp posts, treffic signs, tram cables... all are so annoying! But even so the photo is lovely. What a contrast those buildings make. Fantastic!

Betty said...

That's a great angle to take a snap of Warwick Castle. Looks superb!
Yes, light poles etc. spoil many great photo opportunities.

Gorgeous! I can see myself enjoying a nice long walk there.
