Excellent capture
John Prior: Thanks Vintage
Brilliant the way you've got the ironwork to echo and balance the brick arches, John.
John Prior: Thanks Graeme, sometimes the DOF of a digicam comes in really handy.

Wonderful how you've accomplished symmetry in the framing and still have the offset of the center.
John Prior: I think the garden was a little offset also, thanks Sherri
Nice arch theme you've got going on. Looks like a great building too.

I wouldn't mind a garden like that myself

It would appear that you are being watched John. No, I mean by another human.
John Prior: I think the monk is a cardboard cutout next to the bookshop smile
Looks beautifully kept John

Are you allowed to sit on the way to rest and admire? I don't see any seats.
John Prior: I can't quite remember, but I think there were some benches.
Delightful composition John

nice composition. I like the repetition of the arches in the background with the implied one on the fence.
John Prior: Cheers Otto
