Just a Gate Somewhere  by hootonles
Clear

My wife and I, often drive out into the countryside to take photos; our problem is, I never write down just where I took the photograph, believing we will remember, and then days or weeks later, we scratch our heads, trying to work out where they were taken. I know what your advice will be, “take a notebook”, yes, I have done that and it starts well, then ends up like many of my diaries, blank after the first few entries :O) It’s a shame really, for I remember thinking that this would have been a good place to picnic in the summer.

I have been asked a few times, where I thought this gate leads to, and as I said to Peaky40 earlier:
I think it must lead to the magical world of flora and fauna, that only those with an eye for beauty will ever truly see :O)

Location: somewhere in Hampshire UK

I live in sunny Southampton,England with my wife June. Retired, I am able to dedicate more time to my hobbies and interests, which are, photography, photo manipulation, cooking, gardening, reading, sightseeing, chess, painting, a variety of music and computing.
Up until I was fifteen, I was known as Les, and as I lived in Hooton in the Wirral, I became known as Les from Hooton, hence my pseudonym “Hootonles”. Since my leaving Hooton I have preferred to use my middle Christian name John.

    Yes I always start out with the notebook then it gets forgotten and I download my pics onto the laptop and scratch my head…..now where exactly was that?
    This is a good shot of a stereotypical english scene….but it could also be Tasmania! Caz :O)
