A Conversation with the Churchill's

On the basis that my knee injury from our Mull trip is just badly sprained and nothing torn as first thought. We decided that a short easy walk and time enjoying the good weather was required. Close by is Chartwell, once the home of  Sir Winston Churchill. He spent as much time as he could here right up until his death in 1965. You can certainly understand why. With such interesting sections of different garden areas and magnificent views across the Weald of Kent. Why would you need to go anywhere else? Although this was my third visit, it was the first time I'd come across this Nemon Statue hidden in the furthest corner of the garden. I wonder what else there is to find!!

Taken with a LensBaby


  1. Laura...thank you for visiting my rodeo photos. A small rodeo such as ours makes the photography relatively easy; I sat in the bleachers with a 70-300mm lens. I'm sorry about your knee...for several months now, I've had a hip problem which was finally diagnosed as a stress fracture, probably resulting from osteoporosis and too much walking in New York a year ago. It restricts my photographic adventures!

  2. I'm sorry to hear about your knee injury, Laura! I'm glad nothing is torn, although I can imagine that it's very painful nevertheless. What a lovely composition in your photo - I love the sepia tones and the Lensbaby effect.

  3. I went to Chartwell years ago, love your shot here with the lensbaby!
