Last week I saw a picture on Twitter of St. Edwards Church in Stow-on-the-Wold, it looked like something out of a fairy-tale so I did some research and found out some people think it was the inspiration for Tolkien’s entrance to Moria! The next day I headed for Stow-on-the-Wold and took some pictures of the church, after this it occurred to me that I lived in the middle of Tolkien country and there must be lots of places nearby that inspired Tolkien’s stories. So finding Middle Earth has become my project over the winter, I’ll be travelling around trying to take some fantasy style pictures of Tolkienesque places, maybe I’ll spot some Hobbits on my journey, I just wish I had a grey wizard to guide me.
I’ve managed to process the Photographs taken in London during my stay at The Royal Brompton, it helped me relax after my week away.
I visited Kenilworth Castle again on Tuesday, the weather wasn’t the warmest but I managed to get a few decent pictures.
Another Sunday outing, this time to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, It was my first time up in the chair since before Christmas and I knew an hours journey each way plus time in the museum was probably pushing it but with the current care situation I have to make the most of any chance I get to go out.
I’ve uploaded a few new photos to my Gallery here http://daniel-baker.eu/picture-gallery/2015-2/birdland-2/ hopefully I’ll get round to adding more picture albums I’ve taken this year soon. It’s a very wheelchair friendly place to visit and also pretty local, lots to see if you like birds and there’s also a dinosaur trail for children.
