After yesterday's achy leg incident today has been a tad quieter......you don't want too many of those days. More fun and games in the job application stakes, a short wander with the cameras as it was a warm sunny day and the world was sure looking pretty. A few garden chores and a lot of TV watching. Ah the life of the unemployed is a tough one...so many day time shows competing for my viewing minutes.
Well, I guess the event of the weekend is going to be the North American Photobloggers Meet in Chicago. I'm sure that all of you that are able to be there will be there....the rest of us will be there in spirit. In my case the spirit will be gin. I also understand the event will include the unveiling of all the winners in the 2007 Photobloggies. It would seem there are prizes for all so good luck to all those that have been nominated and I'm sure I echo others thoughts when I say I was just so chuffed to have been nominated. That'll do me!

For today's image I have returned to a ramble around Bath with the Holga. I would hate to bore you with photos of Crete every day so here is another of The Royal Crescent. Or perhaps a little movie would do the trick for you. For some history - The Royal Crescent is a notable residential road of 30 houses, laid out in a crescent, in the city of Bath, England. It was designed by the architect John Wood the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774. It is amongst the greatest examples of Georgian architecture to be found in the United Kingdom and is a grade I listed building.
Together with his father John Wood, the Elder, John Wood the Younger was interested in occult and masonic symbolism; perhaps their creation of largest scale was their joint design of the Royal Crescent and the nearby Circus (originally called "the King's Circus"), which from the air can be observed to be a giant circle and crescent, symbolising the soleil-lune, the sun and moon.
Number 1 Royal Crescent is a museum, maintained by the Bath Preservation Trust, which illustrates how wealthy owners of the period might have furnished such a house.
