photoblog image Droitwich, England

Droitwich, England

A few shots this week from our ShutterChance get together at Croome Court earlier this month.  It was so wonderful seeing everyone, even for a short time... and it was just a lovely day!   A special thanks to Bill... the unofficial organizer!

 

And thank you to everyone who continued to look at the few photo's I've posted... I've enjoyed checking in on some of yours - just didn't have the time or energy to comment.

Love the big foreground meadow, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't that wonderful! There was lots of open space here.
Jolie église perchée sur la colline.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is - I love how the yellow flowers seem to enhance it!

Sounds like you guys had a great time!! Beautiful photos captured here! I see you and Ginnie found the right shots to post today. smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was a fun time, Steven! I think ShutterChance is probably the only blog that can say most of us have met each other in person at out bi-annual get togethers... and it's produced two marriages... mine & Franks, and Ginnie & Astrid's! smile
YAY, Elizabeth. It's fun to be on the same page today. Those who weren't there can get a real feel for the place...and those who were can be reminded of what we saw and felt! Thank you.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You are so right, Ginnie! Simpatico! smile

It was good to see you and Frank -just so many people we didn't talk as much as we would have liked
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was wonderful seeing you, also, Lisl! There's never enough time, is there?! smile

It was a great day Elizabeth, your fine pics here bring back happy memories
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was, indeed! I hope you had a wonderful time, as it was your birthday!

What a lovely setting of this church on the hill. Yes, it must have been a lovely day! I like also the image of Ginnie- so typical!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it?! It, apparently, was moved there!
We did miss you, Philine... .maybe next time!

I was a lovely day but such a shame that we had little time for talking to everyone. The church on the hill is impressive; also the fact that Capability Brown had it moved from its original location.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: That's how it always is with groups, isn't it? We'll be back next June - Perhaps we can see you then...
a wonderfully balanced image, Elizabeth. i love this place.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ayush! I imagine you'd have captured some wonderful photos of this place. Maybe you can join us in two years time when we have another get together?!

I like the little figures dotted around the landscape.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - they were very helpful for my photo!

Fabulous set of pictures, Elizabeth. I love the B&W and Ginnie made me smile... I often see her "searching for a photo".
It was great to spend some time with you and catch up. Too bad that there is too much space between us... but that makes these meetings so very special!!! Thank you for coming with Frank.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ginnie!
Yes - we will relish the times we get to spend... and in another two years' time. smile
It was a great day and a pleasure to welcome some of you to Droitwich. We loved every minute!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes it was! We did, too!
Magnifique , surtout la première photo ..quel bel endroit
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Claudine! It is really lovely!

Some great shots here. The b&w is a special for me.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Louis - I'm very pleased!
It certainly looks like a lovely day. Perfect for roaming - or a meet-up.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was just perfect - except for missing you!
A stately looking view
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Certainly! That's Merry Old England for you!
A great trio of shots, I really lkke the one of Ginnie.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Brian! She's pretty cute, she is!
Thank you so much, Elizabeth, for posting these wonderful reminders of your SC meet up; especially for those of us who were unable to be there.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You're very welcome, Beverly! Perhaps you will join us at the next one - they're usually every two years... ! smile
An interesting day out!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was for sure!
i'm glad that you got to go to the SC get together Elizabeth... it's difficult to have such a short time to visit our friends....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Me too, Peter - we missed you and Penny!
