Weekly Photo – Arch

One of the things I would like to work on in 2017 is my photography. I am joining in with Nana Cathy and Wild Daffodil’s weekly photo challenge.

This week’s one word prompt is Arch.


Why settle for one arch when you could have lots!  These beautiful arches belong to the ruins of St Mary’s Abbey in the heart of York.  The Abbey is a favourite haunt of ours and we have spent many a happy summer hour picnicking in the shade cast by this large section of wall while the children clamber up the columns spread throughout the Museum Gardens.

Coincidentally I’ve just finished reading Behind The Scenes At The Museum by Kate Atkinson, a fabulous novel telling the life story of a character named Ruby Lennox and primarily set in York.  It was lovely to read a book when you intimately know the setting and I was interested to learn that this park used to cost sixpence to enter and had peacocks roaming around, it is easy to imagine those majestic birds in this setting.
