May Note Card Party -- Images of England

Our good friend Vee, at A Haven For Vee, is hosting her monthly Note Card Party.  This party is one of my favorites because we get to look back through our archives and pick a few favorite photos to share with readers who may not have seen them before.  I love seeing other people's note cards because even though I may read their blogs regularly, chances are I haven't seen these particular posts.

This month, I'm sharing some images from our trip to England in 1999.  As I explained in my previous posts, these pictures were all taken using a point and shoot camera with film (no digital cameras for us back then).  As of this year, the pictures are 14 years old; they're not perfect, but I think they've held up pretty well for the most part.  I hope you enjoy!

"View From a Double-Decker Bus"
London


"Anne Hathaway's Cottage"


"Rachael's Garden"
The Bellows Mill, Eaton Bray, Bedfordshire, England


"Swans on the Avon River"
Stratford-upon-Avon


I edited the last picture in PikMonkey using the paint application.  You can click on the link below the note cards to see the original posts, if you're interested.  I hope you get a chance to visit Vee's note card party today.  If you'd like to participate, you just need to select four pictures that you've already used in a previous post -- it's that simple.  :)

Thanks so much for visiting House at Forest Manor and reading my blog; I hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. Denise, I felt like I was visiting England viewing your wonderful images. I've been looking at old film photos and the ones I really like I've been scanning. Not sure what I'll do with them then!! Perhaps put them on a disc. Lovely selections for Vee's party.

  4. I'm jumping back over here to reply to your question. Do you see the cable or hose that the mermaids are holding? They put it in their mouths to get oxygen and then wave it around to make bubbles. It's amazing! Thanks for visiting! Hugs!

  5. Brings back memories of when I was stationed there! Very pretty pics and I have to chuckle, that 'cottage' is at least twice as big as my house:@)

  6. Such a beautiful country so beautifully represented in your photographs. Yes, I'd say that they stand the test of time. Bet you'd love to return with your digital camera in tow just to have at it all over again.

  8. I have a favorite! It's Anne Hathaway cottage, and not even by a nose. I love them all, but that one is just fantastic to me. It kind of takes me away.

  15. Your first photo shows Woolwich, which I think doesn't exist any more but people still talk about it. So it is nice for me to finally 'see' it :) Enjoy the rest of your week, Denise :)

  20. Love these note card photos. My favourite is the one peeking through the window. I like the fuzzy window frame and the clear image of the garden beyond.
