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 (does that make sense?)

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.

Bratislava Castle

So I was scrolling through my blog the other day and saw a post where I said I should post pictures of Bratislava Castle one of these days. The post was from July 2016. I don’t know if the present day counts as “one of these days” in relation to July 2016, but I guess late is better than never.

These were taken with my old compact Fujifilm. I’ve not actually been to Bratislava since I got the Canon.

The castle has a long history; there have been settlements of sorts ever since any people lived in this part of the world. It has been converted numerous times, at one point even burned down. Here’s the Wikipedia article.

The castle is on a hill as well–here you see the towers just poking out from the trees.

For all other pics of my hometown, check out my Bratislava tag.

To blog or not to blog?

As I bring my blog back to life, aside from my Gloomscapes series, I still intend to be posting nice things. There was a time in the second half of 2017 when I wasn’t sure what to do with the blog, I felt it lost direction. Even the Weekly Photo Challenge wasn’t doing anything for me.

Well, not only have I got over that, I’m more excited than ever about blog and can’t wait to post more!
