PT Challenge 181: Scene/Seen On The Streets

Many thanks to Joanne for hosting the challenge this week. And a good one it is, too!!

1) A quiet backstreet in Tenby, Wales.

Tenby Street B&W

2) A street in the English village of Corfe, Dorset. All the buildings, both old and new, are made of the same local stone.

3) On the streets of New York, someone is always watching you..........

    1. Thanks Belita. I do prefer quiet streets where there are not many people. Corfe is a beautiful little village with a magnificent castle nearby. Joanne and I were photographing it with Baz, who we were visiting at the time. We didn't actually go inside The Fox Inn that day.

  5. That last one made me smile! The top two made me envious...would love to visit there. The black and white is quite nice, gives the photo a more solitary feel too.

  6. Wales is a wonderful country and love your peaceful photo of Tenby. The stone buildings in Corfe and just wonderful, I think I grew up in the wrong part of the country. Great capture of Big brother watching you.

    1. Thanks Pat. Tenby isn't always that peaceful. During the summer months it gets clogged with tourists and there's no way you could get a shot of one of the streets so empty.

  8. I don't think I have ever seen a street that not even a cat or dog are there, let alone people. Great shot Mitch.

    I have seen Dorset on TV and would love to go there. That photo is shouting "welcome, welcome."

    Now that is one huge M&M I must say. LOL

    1. Hi Shayna. The shot of Tenby was taken in the quieter residential part of the town, there's nothing for the tourists to see there, so tends to stay quiet. The shot of the street in Corfe was taken just after a heavy rain-shower, so folks were still sheltering in the inn and nearby cafe :-))

  9. Ah, Tenby! One of my favorite places. Corfe was beautiful as well, and I'd like to go back one day, hopefully when the weather is better. I'd like to get up to the castle there. And what can I say about New York??? LOL

    1. Hi Honey, yes it would be nice to go back to Corfe on a dry day and actually get inside the castle :-))
