Five Day Black and White Challenge Day One

Cotehele is a Tudor manor house on the banks of the river Tamar, just over the border in Cornwall. It houses wonderful collections of oak furniture, arms and armour and tapestries inside its granite walls. Over the centuries it has been visited by Kings and Queens and more than one bed names a royal personage who has slept in it.

Thanks to Issy for choosing me to take part, see her entries http://isadoraartandphotography.com/2015/02/15/5-day-bw-challenge-day-2/
Now, the challenge is to post a black and white image each day for five (I may take longer than five days to post five images) and to choose someone else to take part. For day one I’d like to choose Meg, she is currently on a long holiday in Poland and has lots of lovely photos to share taken in Warsaw. https://warsaw2015.wordpress.com/

Don’t panic if I pick you, relax and take part if you want to!

  1. A lovely picture, Gilly. And what a great job of straightening it. You know, I’ve always wondered how it would feel to sleep in one of those huge beds with the curtains pulled all the way around it.

I would love to hear from you . . .
