the duck brigade out doing what they do best, looking for snails. No wonder these gardens are so pretty in this lovely Dorset village.

ducks, 1994, spring street

Although I am still a babe in the woods when it comes to the technical side, I have loved photography most of my life, and it’s wonderful to get that occasional great shot I feel very proud of, for the hundreds of just ‘nice’ ones. I get quite excited at the prospect of visiting some places these days because of the great photos I just might get, if I’m lucky.

    Do you remember which village this is?

  • indeed I do, it’s where my parents lived for some time, and my husband and I had a beautiful marriage blessing ceremony in 1996, it’s Wool. Do you know it? The old section of the village is absolutely gorgeous. Bron

    I wouldn’t say I know it well, but I’ve certainly passed through often enough. It’s only about 20 miles away from where we live. Must stop and have a walk around one time.

  • Half your luck! When you do have time to have a look at the old section of Wool, might I recommend you take a left at the Black Bear pub (coming from the direction of the rlwy stn) and go around into Spring Street (where this photo was taken) and then left into Church Lane, where my parents lived, and towards the end of Church Lane is, of course, the church (Holy Rood) where we had our marriage blessing. So many wonderful attractions in that vicinity including that gorgeous church with the Whistler windows, T E Lawrence’s grave and so forth, Cloudhill too of course, which sadly I haven’t got to as yet. Always hoping: next time, sigh! Bron

  • Thanks, Gabe, as per my previous discussions, my parents lived in this village for a while in the 1990s and i still go back to visit some of their friends there when I get back to the UK, it’s a delightful spot. Bron
