Since I’ve been into photography I’ve used my Instagram account mostly as a chronological timeline of adventures and exploring. However, due to the increasing volume of fairly awesome photos that are being left behind and being consigned to the eternal doom of the dusty electronic shelves of my hard drives, I’ve decided my account will now become more of a gallery; leaping from one adventure to another spanning the years I’ve been into photography. I do hope you all enjoy!
FACT - Gold Hill has also been used as a setting for film and television. It appears in the 1967 film version of Thomas Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd.
The street is the main setting for the 1973 "Boy on Bike" television advertisement for Hovis bread, which has been voted Britain's favourite advertisement of all time. It was directed by Ridley Scott, and includes the main theme from the slow movement of Antonín Dvořák's Symphony No. 9. For this reason, the hill is still sometimes referred to as "Hovis Hill". Gold Hill also featured in an advert for supermarket Morrisons. The tops of some of the houses along Gold Hill appear on the cover of J. K. Rowling's book The Casual Vacancy.

The tomb of Arthur, Prince of Wales at Worcester Cathedral.
Arthur was the first husband of Catherine of Aragon, and died at Ludlow Castle soon after their
marriage in 1502 aged only 16.
Things would certainly have been different if he had survived! His younger brother Henry
became King Henry VIII and history was changed forever.

Last time I discovered the alley this was in, I found Stewy Stencil’s DJ Derek (RIP dude). This time I found this guy by #cagegraphics . Quite poignant for the time.
Julie is a fictional character created by the creative artist behind this unique house. It embodies the story of the life and love’s of a woman growing up and living in the area.
Happy Tuesday everyone and isn’t it lovely that someone pays tribute to us women through a beautiful house like this.
Here’s a shot from a rare occasion that I actually remembered to take a camera to Bath! Generally when I visit the city, I am with friends who don’t indulge my love of taking photos, so I don’t really get to play tourist very often when I am there. On this occasion though, I had a spare couple of hours before meeting friends for lunch, so I took advantage of the sunshine and had a wander.
Topiary goals! Love the hedge on this pretty house. I hope it is all still intact after the stormy weather.
So Storm Dennis had a high old time at the weekend. Out and about today, the aftermath was plain to see with debris from fallen trees, rivers that had burst their banks, roads closed and delays or cancellations on public transport. Hope you all came through unscathed.
On the positive side though, I did feel some ᗩᑭᖇIᑕITY (warmth from the winter sun) today. There was a glorious couple of hours this afternoon when I walked through the park, admiring the carpet of crocuses and noticing the sunshine.
Have a look at my stories for pictures of the Tutenkhamun exhibition at the Saatchi gallery. I absolutely loved it there. Well worth a visit if you haven’t already been. It is on until the beginning of May.
