After seeing this weeks photo challenge, I began thinking about different types of lines, in a sleepless hour the other night. The next day I found the lines of tiles that I posted on Friday, man made, twenty first century city lines.
My mind wandered to ancient lines, and lines that may or may not actually exist, ley lines.
If you believe they do, this is one place where you may be close to one. If you don’t then these stone rows are Neolithic or bronze age.
The lady in the hat with lines is Christine of Dadirri Dreaming, she was very happy to be there in that ancient land. She was a dear friend to many of us, who died in 2014, a few weeks after this photo was taken.
The Guildhall shopping centre in Exeter was created in a historic area right in the middle of the town in the 1970’s. Although there’s a lot of concrete, there are a few little gems ,like the tiny church of St Pancras, first recorded in 1191 and the former Turk’s Head tavern building that’s at least 700 years old.
A mosaic was created, for the shopping centre at the turn of the millennium, by schools and community groups. Somewhere around a thousand 10 cm wooden squares were decorated and mounted in eleven lines on a shop wall.
Wouldn’t it have been nice to be involved in something like that, and still see your square eighteen years later?
This is my post my the weekly photo challenge of lines.
If the amount of blackthorn flowers is anything to go by, there’ll be plenty of sloes this year. Has anyone ever made sloe gin, I bet Tish has.
The river and mill leat area is my favourite place to walk the dogs at the moment, it’s filled with wild flowers and the sound of birdsong, there the blackthorn is prolific.

And what a lot of pretties to see, here are just a few.
But it was over much too soon.
Hi-ho hi-ho it’s back to work I go!
It’s ‘Traces of the past’, for Paula’s Black and White Sunday. This week she says that we don’t have to have buildings or architecture inn our photos, the past can have many forms. So I found some ghosts, and yes I’m more than a little crazy!
Pop over to Paula’s to see her wonderful photo of Bamburgh Castle.
