Pardon me for the cliché, but:
What a Bath! In case your knowledge about the UK is scant, Bath is a small town famous for a Roman Bath relic. It is next to another famous city to the lower west of England, Bristol which is regarded as the garden city of the big island. I made a change at a Bristol train station which was quite atmospheric in an old fashion.
^The shadows were of the other tourists dropping off the train which are included in the picture with an intention to give reference and interest to the scene. Otherwise, the picture could be (much more?) boring.
The whole town area is within easy walking distance. Apart from the Roman Bath, its big attraction is the Georgian architecture of the buildings. The architectural style, decorated with the picturesque River Avon flanked by the leafy banks, bestows the city with a crispy and light pace of life.
^I took this photo on the deck of a boat. The scene presented itself suddenly as the boat sailed around a bend. The moral: don't turn off your camera just to save battery because the decisive moment is called decisive not for no reason.
There are a lot to be admired in the city. The least preferred is the shopping stripe running almost the whole length of the touristy area starting from the railway station. For accommodation, the Bath Hotel is the nearest to the station which charges quite dearly. Some B&B houses have been spotted but the prices are not really much lower than where I am staying, the Hilton Hotel in the city. No breakfast is included though.
^This can make a postcard I think. The photo was taken not by waiting under the stairs for the right moment. Fact is, the place I stood was just enough for one man to pass at a time and people were following me. I knew it to be a good shooting location the moment the stair heaved into view. I was like pausing for a second to shot it.
Hilton is within 20 minutes walk from the railway station. My room overlooks the River Avon too! This is going to be a heritage and photographic tour.
^This photo was taken at a split of a second. The two black stripes were the shaded parts of a bridge. I would say that without a trained eye, most people won't have figured out the possibility of it making up a good composition. No sooner had I clicked the shutter release than one of the birds flew away.
