Bright lights

There was a brief hint of sunshine yesterday, hooray! I ventured out with my camera, but I couldn't find much inspiration outside. As soon as I went out, the sun went in (as it does!) and the ensuing chilly greyness sent me scurrying into the warmth and brightness of Salts Mill. As always, I eventually found my way into the book shop. And, as always, I returned with a couple of new books. One of them is a newly published volume of writing by a woman called Ann Moss... I shall tell you more about her one day. I felt justified in buying it because the proceeds are going to the restoration fund for the church in Saltaire.

And to further justify my visit, I took a few photos inside. This row of lights in primary colours is a wonderful antidote to grey winter.

For those interested in Salts Mill, there is a wonderfully evocative piece of writing on this blog by a freelance travel writer, Abigail King. She gives a good summary of the Mill's history.

  2. Followed you over here from the nice comment you left while visiting me! So glad I did too, my husband lived in Banbury back in the early 70's when he was in the Air Force. I love seeing your photos and all the rich history and stunning architecture. I just know I'm going to have fun here following you around! --Lili

  3. That's a shot I'd have tried to get for sure. I'm a sucker for repeating patterns.

  4. Could you send a little sunshine this way? We've had clouds and rain for a week!

  5. This is a cool shot. I once posted a similar shot of the light in my kitchen:) You have to take inspiration where you find it.
