    The Engineers Inn, the last local pub left in the village.



    View looking back up to the village from a local country park a couple of miles away. The line of houses you see on the horizon is the village and if you look close just to the left of the church tower you will see a small white building, that is the Engineers Inn in the above photo.

    Two views from the deck in back of our house.
    I would have posted three views, but I want to give everyone a chance.
    Too bad, because the third one was actually the best of all.

    missin lens cap again by ChicagoJohn, on Flickr

    So these are actually both taken from the wooden deck that spans the back of our simple house. The first one was heavily reworked when I first discovered post processing about three or four years ago. It's an overlay of an infrared image onto a visible light image with an image from the Hubble Telescope added in for good measure. The second one was taken more recently when I happened to look outside and see a magnificent sunset one evening and decide to grab my camera and take some pictures of it. I noticed that the lens cap was missing when I picked up the camera, but after viewing the images, I discovered why.

    I never take the time I should to comment on your images, Fred Berg. My bad.
    So what I like about this one is, first off, the layers of distance and color in roughly rule-of-thirds positions;
    the green foliage close up with their variegated shapes, the rectilinear red and white buildings next in the midground
    and then the amorphous blue sky; these bounded and framed by the two conifers on left and right,
    mimicking the towers, roofs, and spires of the buildings; the red contrasting the green.

    In addition, I like the high dynamic range going from the white facade of the buildings lit by the sun to the
    dark shadows of the tree on the left, the leaves in the foreground, and the roof shadows.

    It is a wonderfully interesting and absorbing image.

    Thank you, John, those are incredibly kind words. My daughter was playing with a friend in the meadow near our house when I noticed the potential of this scene. The girls picked some flowers for their mums and once we had taken them in and were ready to resume pretending to be lost in the tall grass and hiding from dad, I took a camera out with me and came up with this photo. I'm very glad that you like it and find it interesting.

    Our guru on these weekly journeys, Yorkshireman aka King George, always seems to have something up his sleeve when he picks his "weekly" themes. And this time, I suspect, that it has to do with that which strikes close to home.

    My comments about your image were simply my observations, without any intent to be kind, though I'm glad you took them that way. However, it was kind of you, I think, to share the little story behind the image.
    As I stop to think about it, every image we labor upon and post here has a story, yet that story is seldom told; it is just the image standing there as if it had arisen from nothing, when, in fact, there were a series of causes and conditions that were antecedent.

    So here is my thought for this particular thread, and for that matter subsequent threads; let us each provide some bit of context for our images, images of our neighborhoods, not necessarily where those neighborhoods are geographically, but sort of what they are and why the image of them came into being in the first instance.

    In that way, I think, we can give the images in this weekly theme a level of meaning that would not be possible from the visual alone. I shall go back now and add to the one I posted accordingly, and I would encourage each contributor to add a few words to their posts along the same lines.

    Farm that's behind my place, on the "other side of the tracks".
    Sick of all the spam and advertising. I'm done here.

    I grew up on a farm every summer, every summer as I was growing up in town.
    So I can really appreciate the beauty of "the other side of town". Ya, baby.
