Howdy ladies, gents, one and all!
So today I’m back in Warwickshire, specifically Warwick and so that gave me some time to wander around, um I mean productively spend at Warwick Castle
This attraction is usually busy and people seem to prefer it to say where I was last week at Kenilworth Castle, perhaps partially because it’s still standing, gives good protection from the weather and they always have events/shows. That said though I find the place interesting – or moreso the grounds interesting – it’s a bit dead to me. Weird? It sounds inversely proportional but I tend to find buildings that have tons of people passing through (as opposed to living in them – then you get sick building syndrome) the less ‘soul’ it has. I prefer Kenilworth even though it’s ruins, I like the exhibition space there and the books available to read (a handful but still interesting). It’s like how I found Sacré-Cœur to have more soul/presence/ambiance to the big, cold, empty Notre-Dame even with its ‘prestigious’ coffins.
On a sidenote – I tried to view the ‘Princess tower’ only to be barred since I’m an adult with no kid companions – ha adults are supposed to be allowed in there to look, it’s not like I wanted to see the kids show, I just wanted to see what they’d done with the place. Humph at the woman on guard with her fancy dress costume and cute Western Euro-doll looking braids!
Anyway – today I’m bright Red and Blue, a more stunning colour combination (though I’m actually wearing Beige and Blue). The last time I posted pics in this combo was HERE and this was one of the pics.
The blouse actually has Silver pinstripe but it didn’t come out in the pics and I love with wide leg Oatmeal/Beige trousers (found them in mum’s clothes) – great retro style with a nice sash belt. Added my bright Blue coat with it’s retro cut and felt fabric, and voila, what I consider fancy/smart enough for today’s theme though the shirt and trousers really did look better in real life. The pictures really came out crappy.
A real gorgeous-ness here, though it looked kinda weirded out when I stood somewhat close to talk and take a pic. Can’t blame it, since it has to put up with people everyday and even though I didn’t invade its space I may have been a bit closer than most since I’m not scared of featheries and am used to mean birds and angry birds that look exceptionally beautiful, gorgeous, cute, pretty, just out of the salon etc… That’s not to say it was mean or angry lol – just capable since peacocks (parrots, geese, swans etc) are known for being able to defend themselves – good. Anyway I used my zoom, and of course NO FLASH for taking pics of animals up close. They have their right to good health for their eyes regardless of human curiosity and the need to take thousands of pics when visiting places, most of which usually end up in storage and never looked at again.
