A visit to Bath

Our recent travels have seen us in Bath again.  We actually stayed in Bristol, but a short drive took us over to Bath for a look round.

Quite a bit of work is going on repairing and keeping in order the historic buildings.




I even captured a workman with his steps - he didn't look very busy though!


One amusing observation was the safety barrier/temporary wall that had been put up....they had actually used a digital image of the Actual building, so it looked in keeping,

What a totally brilliant idea.



Here are some more pictures.....



I love the look of this little shop.







We were lucky with the weather too - a good day in fact.

  1. Love the shade of blue at Jacks shop. The stained glass windows of the cathedral must be magnificent when the sunlight shines through.

    1. I know, that blue is lovely...it isn't shiny paint either, sort of matt finish which I think is better - at least for this shop front anyhoos.

  4. I love Bath. You were lucky to have a day with blue sky.

    When we visited Florence last year, we saw several buildings undergoing repair which had photographic covers over the front of them. At first glance, you could hardly tell the difference. Like you, we thought that was a brilliant idea!

    1. I know...we stood there and looked up at it and wondered how on earth the workmen, back in the day, managed to construct such a magnificent building and all without cranes and equipment they get to use these days :-)

  8. Lovely. I took my sons to Bath and stayed in a B&B many years ago, they were fascinated by the visit to the Roman Baths. And Pulteny Bridge with all the shops. The photographic cover has been used here too, one of the big stores in Toronto used the same procedure during renovation... see this post: http://www.ex-shammickite.blogspot.ca/2009/06/big-cover-up.html Thank you for your kind words about my painting, I'm still not sure if I like it.

    1. It's a really effective idea with the cover up isn't it...I love it. As regards your painting, you need time to step back from it and see it with fresh eyes, then you will be pleased with what you have done :-)
