Friends Meeting House, Lancaster

Greetings, this is another repost.

This is Friends Meeting House in Lancaster. The building featured previously in my post Things That Look Like Faces, which was my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.

I don’t have any more photos of this building, so the bonus here is going to be this sign on the side of the house on the opposite side of street.

When I took these pictures, I had no idea what Friends Meeting was–I even feared I was not supposed to actually photograph that house and was doing something naughty. That’s why I only took the one sole pic. Now, of course, I know it’s the Quakers and it seems disrespectful to be using their meeting house for things-that-look-like-faces type of internet thing.

Therefore, a repost/remix.

Liverpool – Albert Dock

This entry is a repost with added material.

Today I will share with you some photographs from my trip to Liverpool, more specifically the famous Albert Dock.

Albert Dock is a complex of dock buildings and warehouses that was completed in 1846. It enabled ships to be loaded from warehouses directly and was the first structure in Britain built without wood using cast iron, bricks and stone. Today it’s a popular tourist attraction.

The above three pictures appeared previously in my post Wanderlust. This was my participation in now dead WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. I have now added three more:

Liverpool has some sick museums, seriously. I’ve not been to the Museum of Liverpool that is shown on the last pic, but I have visited the Merseyside Maritime Museum and also World Museum that is near the Lime Street train station. And there is, of course, the Beatles Story, because you can’t mention Liverpool without mentioning the Beatles!

The reason for the repost is that I felt that Albert Dock, or anything Liverpool really, is too good and too big to be hidden under an entry titled “Wanderlust”–when I don’t use that word anywhere else on this blog–and part of a challenge that has long since been killed by WordPress (RIP). It deserves its own properly titled post. So here it is–with three more pics.

I guess it’s like what a music artist would call a remix.

Leeds

I visited this West Yorkshire city one Saturday and here I share with you some pics from there.

Leeds City Museum

The Electric Press

St Anne’s Cathedral

Corn Exchange

Some old house?

City Markets Hall

Leeds is only less than an hour away from Manchester. This was my second time there–on the first occasion, I didn’t get much chance to see the city, as it was an anti-Brexit march.

Lancaster Castle

It’s been a bit dry here on Some Photoblog lately, so I decided to post some photos of places I’ve been to that I have not posted before.

So this is Lancaster Castle.

All the shots are outdoor ones, as photography is not allowed inside–the castle used to be a prison and is still used for legal proceedings. Under UK law it is not allowed to take pictures inside courts.

Also, the Queen is Duke of Lancaster here.

Is there anything worse than a van ruining your pic?

Seriously, have you had a beautiful shot completely spoiled by a vehicle (or other things or people)? And anyone here been to Lancaster? I definitely recommend, if you’re in the area.

I do like castles–check out my Pinterest board.
