This afternoon, the Autumn sun was shining and I felt compelled to walk into town with the camera. I didn’t know what I would find, but I hoped to see some beautiful things. I live in Stamford, an old coach stop on the Great North Road. It’s a lovely little town with lots of Georgian stone buildings. Having decided I was looking for pictures, I turned down a narrow lane I rarely use and met the most adorable tortoiseshell cat. It was in the mood for company so it deigned to pose. I couldn’t believe it when it walked over to the brick wall and sat down. Did he know he matched the brick wall? I think so!
Near the cat was a black iron gate that someone had coverered on the inside with a blue tarpaulin. I liked how the black looked against the blue, then I turned and looked at it from the side. It looks like a painting with the yellow plastered house, that rectangle of blue and the red leaves on stone…lovely!
Just up the lane is a little church. I’d never noticed the flowers before. I stopped and smelled the roses…they were divine! Roses that smell like roses. I had to take some pictures.
I then went around to the front and took some pictures of the door. There were workmen inside so the door was open. I love how the light highlights the wrought iron on the door. One could do a whole fashion line based on the door.
It was a glorious walk. The air had that sweet fall scent and it was just the right temperature; not too cold or warm. I feel so blessed to have eyes.
