Thursday’s Special: Traces of the Past 03

For the third time this year Thursday’s Special is bringing you a challenge dedicated to past. It can be a distant past or a recent one. It can be a past that is abandoned and about to be forgotten, or past that is still functional and intertwined with present.

My example is one of England’s most iconic structures that most of you will be able recognise and locate.

I am curious to see what traces of the past you have found on your travels or in your home town. Please, join me in this challenge and share a past-related photo post.

P.S. I’ve heard from a confidential source that the attached score is one of the Queen’s favourite songs.

  1. Oh that glorious sky, and the proud flag. I used to collect English castle postcards when I was a child – more documentary, than beautifully atmospheric like this. Thanks for the reminder of my past, and another lovely image.

    • An example when past has become a burden and yet there remains a great wish to preserve it. Thank you so much, Tish. A well-thought out post. I am very glad that you shared it for this challenge (makes me feel privileged)

  17. The clouds in the photo give a certain moodiness to the picture. Makes me think of all the bloody skirmishes that took place outside these walls.
