Brighton Bandstand, the Birdcage sitting on the city seafront, designed by Phillip Lockwood and completed in 1884 is designated as a Grade II Listed Building of Architectural importance.

 

It fell into a bad state of disrepair and was re-opened in summer 2009, having undergone a major restoration project to return the building to its Victorian splendour.

Probably the most famous derelict building the the UK, if not the world!

In the very pretty fishing village Eyemouth, Scotland. Just after I took this photo I had to run for cover!

Beautiful Paxton House, designed by John Adam in the mid Eighteenth Century for the young Patrick Home and said to be one of the best examples of Palladian Architecture in Scotland.

A bit of a cliech, but here I think it works.

Taken just outside the New City Hall looking towards Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. In a heavy shower. I have pushed the colours up to give a bit of brightness on a wet grey day.

I had to pretend I was not taking this shot. Security tend to get upset with photographers taking photos of the London Eye. If you have a small compact then no problem, But as soon as you point a large DSLR at it they can get quite nasty.

Set in the peaceful Wiltshire countryside beside a lake, Old Wardour Castle, near Tisbury was once one of the most daring and innovative homes in Britain. It was built in the 14th century as a lightly fortified luxury residence for comfortable living and lavish entertainment.

 

Old Wardour’s eventful past and the fighting it saw during the Civil War. The badly damaged castle became a fashionable romantic ruin, and in the 18th century was incorporated into the landscaped grounds of the New Wardour House

 

Robin Hood Prince of Thieves was filmed here.

 

For the techies it's a 5 shot HDR taken on a Canon EOS 1D Mark 3 The camera is able to do up to 7 at a time, but uses a lot of card space. So I have settled on 5

It's not easy to get photos of the London Eye up close, this is because of "jobs worth" security that keep saying you can't take photos here etc!

 

A Place For Great Photographers

Hier matin dans les marais de Hyères les palmiers. Une aigrette est venu me narguer.

This was near Abbotsford House. Home of Sir Walter Scott.

 

"It was so quiet a day that the sound he best loved, the gentle ripple of the Tweed over its pebbles"

 

(Sir Walter Scott)

 

I did get a wet bum doing this shot, much to Clare's amusement. I sat on the rocks with tripod legs out as wide as possible with the centre column removed.

 

Commerce is a division of trade or production which deals with the exchange of goods and services from producer to final consume.

 

Here we see an old Thames barge, used for moving and selling goods up and down the Thames. Behind Canary Wharf

 

Canary Wharf is a major business district in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, England. Rivalling London's traditional financial centre, the City of London, Canary Wharf contains many of the United Kingdom's premier office spaces and tallest buildings

The Craig Goch Dam, often called the Top dam, is a masonry dam in the Elan Valley of Wales and creates the upper-most of the Elan Valley Reservoirs. Construction on the dam began in 1897 and it was complete in 1904. The primary purpose of the dam and the other reservoirs is to supply Birmingham with water. In 1997, a 480 kW hydroelectric generator began operation at the dam.

Berwick-upon-Tweed is England's most dramatic walled town, standing right at the Northern-most tip of Northumberland.

A sunken oval amphitheatre made of grey limestone, the Scoop is a great outdoor area to the west of City Hall.

 

The Scoop can seat 1,000 people. It's a popular space on a sunny day and home to a variety of events through the year. It can be accessed from the riverside walkway by a curving ramp and by steps.

Dunstanburgh Castle, Northumberland

 

Perched high on a cliff, Dunstanburgh Castle is now largely ruinous although it rated at one time among the largest and grandest castles in the north of England. Dating from the 14th century, the castle was protected on two sides by the sheer cliff face and the sea.

 

The first building works at Dunstanburgh Castle took place under Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, and the remains of the early 14th century gatehouse can be seen in the form of two D-shaped towers either side of an arched entrance. From these surviving structures it is possible to imagine what a magnificent and imposing building the gatehouse must have been.

 

Despite the ruinous state of Dunstanburgh Castle, it presents a formidable and imposing sight from a distance. To fully appreciate the environment, Dunstanburgh Castle can be approached by a twenty-minute trek across the rocky beach. With unpredictable weather conditions prevalent along the north east coast, it can be an extremely atmospheric experience.

Woburn Abbey has been the home of the Dukes of Bedford for nearly 400 years.

 

The history of the Abbey dates back to 1145, and was originally a religious house for a group of Cistercian monks. In 1538 the Abbot, Robert Hobbes, was found guilty of treason and the monastery confiscated. Legend states that he was hanged from an oak tree at the Abbey's gate.

 

Edward VI granted Woburn Abbey to Sir John Russell in 1547, but it did not become a family home until 1619. In 1747, the Fourth Duke commissioned Henry Flitcroft to rebuild the west range, including the grand series of state rooms.

 

Then in 1802, under instruction from the 6th Duke, Humphry Repton was asked to landscape the park much as it appears today and his original sketches and plans are still kept at Woburn

The Pleck and Black and White cottage in need of some TLC. In a small village in Hereford. It is well over 500 years old. It's not been lived in for years.

 

Not going to say exactly where this is as I know the villagers would not want other urbexer's there.

Photo prise en 2009.Je suis preneur si quelqun connait le nom de ce petit papillon sur fleurs de garrigue provencale..

Elles vont finir par me piquer :-D:-D

Apart from border and signature this is straight from the camera. No sharpening no noise reduction nothing just as shot.

Pedestrian tunnel at Blackfriars Bridge.

 

Blackfriars Bridge, built to a design by Joseph Cubitt, Blackfriars Bridge was completed in 1869 with five wrought iron arches.

Le moro sphinx ou sphinx colibri ou sphnix du caille-lait (Macroglossum stellatarum) est un insecte appartenant à l'ordre lépidoptère, de la famille des Sphingidae. C'est une des rares espèces diurnes de sa famille. Le moro sphinx possède une très longue trompe pour butiner les fleurs, souvent violettes ou blanches, en vol stationnaire comme les oiseaux-mouches. Il butine généralement le nectar des fleurs que les autres insectes ne peuvent atteindre. Il aime la sauge. Son vol est d'une précision et d'une rapidité peu communes.

Eastney Lake forms the south west corner of Langstone Harbour, and being adjacent to Portsmouth it has a colourful history. The finger-like western extremities of the estuary were filled early in the 20th century. Land reclaimed on the south side was used for housing, alongside Southsea Marina which was created in 1987 by enclosing part of the mudflats. More recently, stone sea defences have been placed around the shore, presumably to reduce erosion and damage from storm surges.

Meilleurs voeux à tous pour 2009!!!!!!!!!

Painshill Park is in Cobham in Surrey and was created by Charles Hamilton between 1738 and 1773. Hamilton used follies to compliment the landscape and regarded it akin to painting a living picture; he led guests on tours around his estate. Sadly he ran out of money and sold his estate in 1773. After a sucession of owners, in 1948, the then owner split the land in to smaller lots and the park fell into disrepair. The park was rescued in 1981 when a new trust was setup to restore, maintain, and open the park to the public.

At the heart of this serene rural estate is Mottisfont Abbey, set in glorious grounds alongside the fast-flowing River Test.

Clinton Cards are a large greating cards company, this building looked like a stack of cards. Taken on a Saturday while the Olympics were on, the streets were very empty. Reminds me of the opening sequence of the film 28 Day Later.

The Vyne

 

Summerhouse which is possibly the earliest domed garden building in England, dating from c1635. Designed by John Webb, and built in the shape of a Greek cross, it is thought to be one of a pair planned for the garden. Originally, the Summerhouse was ornately decorated with plasterwork and richly painted. It was variously used as a banqueting house, a 'lust' house and a dovecote.
