Um.......... not sure what to say at the moment, so here are some pics I took recently in and around Greenwich.


















These are on the outside of St. Alfege's Church, Greenwich. I suppose, being cherubs, they may have been intended to be comforting images? Not so much now!
I've been meaning to take some pictures of them for a while, and found myself doing so on November 1st - there was clearly something/s still lingering in the atmosphere....

Looks like those cherubs need to spend some time with the fungi (fun-guy) get it??? Enjoyed the pics.

I like the enigmatic spray-paint tags you find. Also that line of boats . . .

Great pictures Lettie, I especially like the fungi in the tree.

Gary said...

Happy Thanksgiving! I love the cherubs.

Shelly Lowenkopf said...

Um, appears as though you had a mean time in Greenwich.

I love stonework like this. One day, one day I will draw it. We've got loads of buildings with gargoyles and things here in Bristol so I've no excuse except it's bloomin' cold!

Dumdad said...

Um, you heap good photographer.

Lynette said...

Great phots, I like the way the boats are sitting, don't they put them away for the winter?

Lynne said...

UM ... love the boats all lined up ;;;

love the fungi that look like they are trying to hide from something (maybe the cherubs?)

if the cherubs were once supposed to be signs of joyfulness time has not been kind to them. They look very sad and woeful, but great subjects for photography! I find them very interesting.

Donna said...

Gorgeous photos as per usual honey. Sadly the ones Amanda took of you and I are not so gorgeous! I must send one to you.

Did you get my email?

Reya Mellicker said...

Yes, the "cherubs" have become ensouled over time, making them cherubs no longer. Very spooky images. LOVE THEM!!

Chick said...

Great photos! Sometimes they say more than words...um...can.

Steve said...

Love the mushrooms. They're so mysterious! :)

Mark said...

It's back to Greenwich mean time, could that have something to do with it???

Cheers Mark

Queenie, maybe they did???

TT, I like the enigmatic ones best.

Ta kLulu.

And to you Gary (sorry, more than a little late....)

um... haha Shelly, very good.

Jess would be great to draw these. I'd wait till Spring tho. No, summer.

lettuce said...

d'you think they are magic Pod?

um, ta DD.

Nope Lynette, they are still there. No water now tho, just leaves, a brown pond of them.

Lynne they are woeful aren't they? LG finds them very freaky.
(she should know, haha)

donna you look fairly gorgeous in them. Me, not so much!

Interesting thought, Reya, that they are ensouled now.

hello, um, chick! ta

I only saw them by chance Steve, was very pleased with self.

mark are you trying to imply something about residents of greenwich.... ;o)
