A trip up to London and a visit to Greenwich.

 The Cutty Sark is looking good after its restoration following the fire.

The Naval College is very imposing and the main walkways are all colonnaded, presumably to keep the old admirals and sea lords dry. 

The chapel is beautiful and the picture doesn't really do it justice, because when you look at the decorated ceiling, its done in such a way that you get a 3D effect.

I usually pack a camera but this time I forgot so these are phone pictures.

Medieval views

Lacock Abbey, Wiltshire

It dates back to the 13th Century and was once the home of Fox Talbot the photographic pioneer.  It houses probably the oldest photograph negative which dates back to 1835. The camera equipment in the museum ranges from the very early plate glass cameras through to today's equipment.

And some Harry Potter scenes were filmed here!!

These were taken on my phone, but have a look at Suza's  blog to see some really good mobile phone pictures.
