Three Bird Boxes

This week’s theme is the Thames Path between the picturesque village of Sonning and the growing town of Reading, which has become my new home during the week. The Thames Path runs for a grand total of 184 miles, from the Cotswolds in the west of England through to the iconic Thames Barrier at the east end of London, and it’s a subject I’ll be returning to every now and then.

The trees along the Thames Path between Sonning and Reading have no shortage of bird boxes nailed to them, but this tree seemed to have the most, with three boxes visible.

Wooden Slats

This week’s theme is the Thames Path between the picturesque village of Sonning and the growing town of Reading, which has become my new home during the week.

To finish this week’s wallpapers, my final choice is this close-up shot of some wooden slats that caught my eye. I can’t remember what sort of building or fence the slats were part of though – sorry!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my first set of photos in a while. If you have, please do tell me on Twitter, or fave the photos on Flickr, so that I know how well I’m doing 🙂 There’ll be more wallpapers next week!

Gate At Sonning Lock

Union Jacks On A Fence

A string of Union Flags tied along a garden fence, presumably to celebrate either Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee or the London 2012 Olympic Games … or both!

CCTV Sign and Reflections

This week’s theme is the Thames Path between the picturesque village of Sonning and the growing town of Reading, which has become my new home during the week. The Thames Path runs for a grand total of 184 miles, from the Cotswolds in the west of England through to the iconic Thames Barrier at the east end of London, and it’s a subject I’ll be returning to every now and then.

There are some very striking buildings visible from the Thames Path between Sonning and Reading, forming the Winnersh Triangle business park popular with firms like Oracle and Microsoft. This one in particular caught my eye because, no matter which angle I looked at it, all that I could see were reflections.

Bird Box Through The Trees

The weekdaily desktop wallpaper is back! It’s been exactly a year, and it hasn’t been a nice one 🙁

Leaving Bath via The Lower Bristol Road

This week, I’m afraid that I’m going to be indulging myself in a bit of nostalgia, because, after three and a half years helping to run Gradwell, I’m leaving Bath for pastures new. This week’s wallpapers are some of my fondest memories of Bath. You can also find more photos of Bath here and here.

To bring this theme, and my time in Bath to a close, I’ve picked one last shot … this is the road I’d walk along every day to get back to Bath Spa Railway Station and catch the train home to Cardiff (when it eventually turned up). I’ve already made that walk for the last time, and now it’s on to the future and making a new life in Reading.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s photography.

The Roof of Green Park Station

This week, I’m afraid that I’m going to be indulging myself in a bit of nostalgia, because, after three and a half years helping to run Gradwell, I’m leaving Bath for pastures new. This week’s wallpapers are some of my fondest memories of Bath. You can also find more photos of Bath here and here.

When things get to me, or I just need space to think, I like to get out for a bit of a walk (well, a hobble since the car crash), and one of my favourite places would be the Avon tow path down by the former Green Park railway station. Today, the station is a mixture of a supermarket, the supermarket’s car park, and lots of little shops and offices, but look up at its roof, and it isn’t hard to imagine what it must have been like back in the age of steam.

Waiting For Its Next Victim

Beware the skies above Bath! They are home to a small population of gulls and pigeons, and from time to time, tourists (and the odd hard-working software developer …) have ended up getting covered in crap from them. Thankfully there’s an excellent dry cleaners’ on Westgate Street should it ever happen to you too.

Since Graham bought me three bags of coffee beans for Christmas a couple of years ago (a most unexpected but most welcome gift), my morning routine has included picking up a cup of coffee every morning on the way to the station. The coffee shop nearest to Bath Spa Railway Station happens to also be the most photogenic, thanks to the rebuilt Southgate Shopping Centre.
