Now we are six

Late again, but my excuse is that although I'm not six, nor even a multiple of six, I am one year older than I was this time last year.

I felt obliged to do six pictures this week - one of these days I'll be able to settle on a single picture but not today.  Each picture does have six things, and I think easy enough to spot.

The Mediterranean Sea

This was taken just after the Grand Prix of Monaco, when there would have been wall-to-wall yachts. 

The church in Collonges-la-Rouge in France
The whole of this village is built in red sandstone.  It is a spectacular sight but sadly it is almost entirely dependent on tourists and during the winter is completely dead.

A retaining wall alongside a river in France
Not the most inspiring sight perhaps, but it captured my imagination somehow, wondering if the drainpipes all spout at once.  I should go and have a look next time it rains.  That's likely to be any moment now, and all tomorrow, and ...

A visitor to our garden
I find it very hard to take photos of birds, I'm far too slow to react.  No wonder I like buildings so much!

A window in a church near Winchester in England

I've used this picture before, or one very similar, when describing this ancient church.

Bridges on the river Gartempe in St Savin, France
I thought I might have used this picture before too, but if so, I can't find it.  The bridges are beside the beautiful church of St Savin sur Gartempe.

  3. Six of six. Amazing -- especially because all are such interesting pictures on their own! :)

  4. Oh, and a happy 23rd birthday!

  5. Happy birthday, and congratulations on six of six. I just got back from France and felt very clever knowing where those photos had been taken.

  6. Happy birthday! what an exquisite collection for "six", glad you didn't settle for just one picture.

  7. Happy Birthday!!! Fantastic six shots and my favorite is the view from your garden with the little bird, adorable.
