This was taken on our last trip to the UK, when we visited the Tower of London.
Everyone who had been charged with Treason, or Murder, or to be Beheaded, came through these gates to be placed in the Tower.
You might remember the Movie “Elizabeth” when she was to be arrested and placed in the Tower. They took her through ’Traitors Gate".

    Excellent capture i have screenprinted there loads of times

  • Yeahhh. Somebody else that also knows about it, outside of the UK.
    History is a forgotten subject these days.
    When I say that I make chainmail, a lot of times people have said …What’s that" ???

    fantastic image, full of history and perhaps an overlay of fear…….
    I think the energy there would be very daunting….

  • Believe me when I say, my energy level at the time I was there, went through the roof.
    I couldn’t stand still.

    Larry, love this. Love the treatment you gave to it and love the feel it has.

  • Thanks Texas.
    I’m going to do some scanning and upload a few of these old ones.
    They are all 35mm, so I need to touch them up a bit.

  • They used to place decapitated heads on pikes at this entrance, so as to put fear into the person going in.

    ok add another one who knows of the ’traitor’s gate’ although this is the first time I’ve seen it! love the treatment you gave this photo focusing the view to it! well done (big smile)

    you make chainmail? oh that’s so cool! I’m no longer surprised how little people know about so much (grin) … I also remember saying to a co-worker when discussing movies with him ’ do you remember the part in The Lord of the Rings …. only to get the response of what’s the Lord of the Rings? duh … seems the fellow only watched only blatant exploitation horror movies all his life (sigh)… but it’s not limited to fantasy or medieval knowledge but includes what some would consider common .. like how to boil an egg or cook a meal for themselves .. I’d laugh but I no longer think it’s funny … I think the human race especially in the US is being dumbed down and I believe, can’t remember who first said this, that those who forget get the past are doomed to repeat it and I’d add .. it’s worse the second time around …

  • Thank you my sweet soul sister.
    You are a true gem.
    This time around, I think I am here to learn Humility.
    But the next time I would dearly love to fly…..
    Oh’, and I can cook.
