I love these photos, especially the last photo! I wouldn't normally take a photo like it but the colour of the stones against the lines of the roof just sang to me and I didn't even think, I just shot it... perhaps I did learn something from Susannah's Photo Meditations, haha.

Grasmere Part 2 - Diana Mini

Whilst most of the photos I took in Grasmere with my yashica were of the village, these photos were taken along a path that followed the river behind the village and back to the car park... a walk that turned out to be far better than any of us expected.

There is almost a feeling of serenity in the Fells (hills) of the Lake District - an indifference to the world around it and the constant changes happening that don't seem to affect the area.... the sheep certainally didn't care about us wandering through and neither did the clouds in the distance that softly covered the very tips of the Fells making them seem much larger than they were.

I'm a constant worrier and that feeling of letting those worries go and just enjoying my surroundings for those brief moments where I pressed the shutter button was exactly what I wanted that weekend...
and sometimes a moment is all you need.

Grasmere Part 1

Of all the places that we visited over Mum's birthday weekend, Grasmere was my favourite. It was quaint and lovely, exactly what you would expect from the Lake District, with gorgeous little cottages, stone walls and the most amazing gingerbread I've ever eaten.
(Oh how I looove gingerbread)

I actually didn't realise that Grasmere was also the home of William Wordsworth until we got to the church and walked around to see the grave...which is funny as the main reason that the village is so popular is because of him, but honestly I think it would be just as popular anyway, it is such a delightful little place.

The Herdy Shop

Grasmere is also home to a Herdy shop, which I personally found more exciting - I love that little sheep face - though the photo isn't that great, but I don't care. I kind of wish I'd bought some of these now... and some mugs, maybe a tea towel... I want it all!
