It's fun to see the over-all perspective of the design, Ellie...and the character at the vanishing-point end. It makes me want to walk the "lines."

A "spell of just three pictures a week" really works well for me, so I hope you find it works for you as well. Not so overwhelming to keep up with.
EJWilkins: I think the "just a spell" will be more permanent for me too Ginnie. It takes a lot of time to upload 7 a week, and all the other stuff that goes with it

Lovely place, Ellie...perhaps a few benches might be in order...
EJWilkins: No benches in that area, haven't a clue why not
Many hours of work went into this Ellie. Looks lovely. I too would like to see some benches there.
EJWilkins: Many, many hours Ron. Each little piece of granite is placed by hand
Very nicely caught Ellie with no one else around.
EJWilkins: ... and the one person in the picture is carefully disguised as a tree, which was lucky

My father in law has been woring as a paviour for his entire life. I bet he would like this smile
EJWilkins: He would love some of the Portuguese pavements, they really are carefully thought out and very carefully laid.

I know you enjoy Portugal Ellie,and as i used to be a keen angler i have admired you posting of 21/01/2008 "EMPTY RODS"and it still in my favorites list.This capture is very nice,may be the local council might try something like it on Southsea sea front!!!
EJWilkins: I can't imagine anything like this standing the test of time in Southsea, can you?

Thanks for the compliments Graham .. keep them coming wink

Oh well done Ellie: nicelt seen & composed. Is this a reference to the sun?
EJWilkins: Sul is, apparently, South ... I had to ask somebody who knew the answer!
