My Sunday Photo: 10 May 2015

MSP150510Old walls, like this one, fascinate me. This is actually part of an old railway bridge. Trains passing underneath might have taken troops, or supplies, on the first part of their journey to France in 1914. In contrast, we’re looking at this year’s new growth of ivy (the paler leaves.)

Those bricklayers knew how to build, all right. It just saddens me that they had to do that work for a pittance. But that is another story.

    Ivy will grow anywhere it has the chance, it does add character to a building.

    Lovely photo and interesting to consider the millions of people that must have passed through it. I have an old red brick wall around much of my garden and I love it. It gives the garden so much character.

  3. Very nice and it’s so interesting that the wall looks almost new. xx

    I get the same sense of wondering about the past when rambling through a cemetery. It’s fascinating to imagine what the lives of those beneath the sod were like.
