Taken with Nikon D90 & 18-55mm @18mm and nd8 filter.

This was taken back in May on a blissfully quiet Sunday morning at 8.30. Why was I up at that hour? My daughter had gone to do a car boot with my sister, so I took the opportunity to wander into town while everyone else was having a lie in!
Friar Street is one of the oldest parts of Worcester that the council haven’t knocked down and put up some monstrous concrete monstrosity in it’s place, although saying that, there is a hideous concrete multi storey car park that backs onto it, which you can just see in the distance :(
Next to Cafe Rouge,(originally Bottles Wine bar, in my heyday!) is the old Greyfriars, which is open to the public on selected days. Further down on the same side, but hidden from view, are the old Alms Houses.
The original has a lovely blue sky, but I’ve always felt photos of this area of Worcester lend themselves to being aged

    Real period looking image Lissy and especially like the Elizabethan Makeup store selling eloquent ladies ‘Blusher’ as advertised, or ‘Rouge’ as one used to call it! ;)
    Nice trip down memory laneand what agreat day to do the shop with nobody in sight!
    Cheers Rick

  • hahahaha thou hast made this lady larf like a drain! LOL Ye olde cafe rouge used to be called…..darn I forget now, but it used to be one of my favourite watering holes back in the day – probably the reason why I’ve forgotten what it used to be called , and why I’m now almost teatotal :))

    Love this monochrome feast you are giving us at the moment Lissy….and I love the favorite kind of street to walk down..usually expensive though…..!!

  • thank you Polly,& yes very expensive! Anja Potze has lovely jewellery, I have a little trinket box designed by her, given to me by my uncle on one of my many birthdays, and his infamous pub, The Cardinal’s hat is further down the road….nice place to sit and share a drink with Fred the ghost when he’s of a mind :))

    Nice shot and treatment – it works well. I remember when the Cardinal’s Hat had its own brewery – many a happy hour spent at the beer festivals. (Many years ago, my grandparents ran the Wool Pack in Dolday Street.)

  • crikey Matthew, now that is going back some! Happy days eh!
