The Elizabeth Tower, London, and Good Fences

 
Keeping out the riffraff

I know that it's entirely possible that I've posted this photo before, but it's the best I could come up with today. I've not been out taking photos of snow-laden fences. I'll see what I can do in the next week.



I don't suppose a clock face can be admitted as evidence to substantiate my claim that I was in Westminster at 7:04 (AM or PM) when the crime occurred in another part of London.




I told you that I'm running low on fences. I took this photo in January of 2011, but trust me, it looks exactly the same today - snow everywhere.

Call me a old fashioned farm girl, but I truly find your fence covered in snow the most beautiful.

They may be repeats, but they're still beautiful!

Great pictures, especially partial to Big Ben for obvious reasons, but love the fence in the snow picture. So pretty!

Linda Kay said...

That first photo through the fence is fabulous! And I'm sure the snow looks pretty much the same. Have a great day!

I have a similar photo of Big Ben, but mine is at 7:00 pm. Personally, I love the wire fence photo as it takes me back to my country home. We used to walk through the fields to get to a hiking trail along an escarpment. Trudging through deep snow and running your woolen mittens across the spent Queen Anne's lace to get the seeds stuck on you. You could even see the little mice trails over the snow and back down into the little hidey holes created from dried bent grass. My old lab used to listen for the mice and then pounce (never successfully). Your photo is a beautiful reminder of those simple days. Wendy x

I really like your photo of the fence in front of the tower! Beautiful!

Primitive Stars said...

Beautiful fence photo, like a postcard.Blessings Francine.

Terri D said...

I agree with Linda Kay. You framed Big Ben in such a unique way. Awesome! As for the snowy fields... I am just happy I'm looking at photos!!

Perfect "firsts" for me . . .

Snow everywhere? No, thank you, but I know we'll get it sooner or later (I vote "later!").

Susie said...

very good pictures. I love seeing the clock face. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Felicia said...

I've not seen either before but I love both of them. the first one is a great perspective and of course the 2011 image is more up my alley.

stay warm friend.

EG CameraGirl said...

I hope the weather improves so you can get out to take more photos. Meanwhile. the photos you posted are great!

Karen S. said...

Just so you know, it's such a lovely photo, actually all of them are, they are worth seeing again and again. Any time.

Ruth Kelly said...

I, too, have just used my last fence photo. I need to be out taking more photos but tis the season when we tend to want to be home in a warm house.

carolann said...

Your fences, clock ,tower are all magnificent takes.

Stephanie said...

I agree with Trace4J...your fence covered in snow is simply beautiful.

And the Clock Tower is truly magnificent!

Enjoy your Thursday!

Debbie Harris said...

I had to laugh when you posted the photo of the snow and said it looks the same today as it did in 2011.
That's pretty much the way it is, isn't it? :)
Have a blessed day.

Ginny said...

The fence frames this clock just beautifully! It makes for a pretty and fancy picture. And I love seeing the face design up close!

Carola Bartz said...

I take London at any time, but I love the snowcovered landscape just as well.

Jean | Delightful Repast said...

Judy, you *know* I never mind a repeat of a picture of England! And your clock photo is fab!

Arlene Grimm said...

I always enjoy seeing pictures of England Judy! Would love to visit there one day.

ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

I love seeing YOUR snow covered fence, as long as mine stay snow free. :)

Ida said...

Well even if it is a repeat it's certainly worth sharing again. Loving the way you framed the clock tower between the fence posts. Also it would hurt to poke yourself on those iron pieces I would think. Nice snowy shot, glad we don't have that much. I just wish our "ice" would go away.

Jeanne said...

Even though I am not looking forward to the snow, it is a very pretty shot. Love the London shots too.

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

I love your fence photo - beautiful...even for an old fence :) Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog!

Debby Ray said...

That's what I call going from one end of the spectrum to the other...and both are gorgeous :)

But then, if you didn't commit the crime, who did?

Love both your fences but particularly the contrast between them.
