I love those areal gardens.
Picturit: Don't you just love them.... and that in England.....
I love semi-derelict buildings...
Picturit: Me too, I am quite surprised though that they allowed this to happen...
Hmmmm... he looks vaguely familiar....
That building is so very photogenic! You've done a great job, Astrid!
Picturit: Yes, doesn't he grin... I crossed the street and looked if everybody was there and saw Bill next to the building..Thank you, Elizabeth.
Cette bâtisse a besoin d'un bon ravalement.
Picturit: I was kind of surprised to see a building like that.
Oh my, Astrid. You and Chad were really on a different page that day, weren't you, finding things the rest of us never saw!
Picturit: Indeed, Ginnie. I was short of eyes that morning and I had to make sure I was not run over by cars while hunting for new objects.... I was kind of surprised to see a building like that.

He is totally lost, friendless and in need of a drink..
Picturit: I went over and made sure he stayed with the group the rest of the day.... wink grin...

I have a feeling he is actually a Bristolian! That poor pub - it would look great is they restored it
Picturit: Thank you, Lisl, I did not know that was a pub, I thought it was where Nelson was born.... I was way behind when you explained. It would look great, it is a wonderful building.
Il faudrait redonner une deuxième vie à  ca batiment ..Mais bravo pour la photo..
Picturit: I totally believe that too, maybe somebody will have some money to restore it and bring it back it the original glory.

A side of Bristol I never saw. This once beautiful house needs some restoration.
Picturit: Lisl took us here and we loved it, I agree that some of the houses really needed some TLC. Thank you, Philine.

I have never seen Sir William in such dynamic pose striding out. Did he worry he would be left behind? This is an excellent image Astrid.
Picturit: Thank you, Chad. Don't worry I went over and made that he stayed with the group the rest of the day....He did have that dynamic walk, didn't he.
Altijd leul als toerist om door achteraf straatjes te lopen.
And do you have a great time with your visitor ?
Picturit: Dit is Bill Philips, van Shutterchance.... we nemen altijd foto's van elkaar. Mark, de zoon van Ginnie is weer terug naar Atlanta en we zijn allemaal weer terug naar onze "normale routine".... Het was een erg leuke tijd en we hebben hem heel wat laten zien.

Picturit: Thank you, JP.
Sad to see buildings falling into decay like this, it has trees growing out from all over the place. Fortunately W.J.Phillips of Droitwich injects a sense of youth into the scene.
Picturit: Indeed, Brian. Lisl took us here and it was good to see this too. Some wonderful characteristic buildings.

Astonished by the hanging gardens of Bristol. Well he should be.
Picturit: Me too, never knew they had them here.... Lisl took us here, we had a great walk.
I would be scurrying by at a clip too by the look of the building ready to lose it's head (bricks).
Picturit: Indeed, Mary. That is why I walked on the other side of the road..... Bill did survive though.
Looks a bit of a dodgy character to me Astrid

Lisl is right he is definitely a Bristolian
Picturit: Yes indeed and I think he knew exactly where to go..... I am not trusting everybody I meet in the streets grin.... HA... Thank you for willing to be in the picture.

A dodgy character in a dodgy area. smile
Picturit: Indeed, Alan.... I was glad I was on the other side of the street wink

You captured him walking with some kind of purpose. Nicely composed.
Picturit: Thank you, Beth. This is Bill from Shutterchance, I just happen to be on the other side of the road.
The street name speaks of bygone eras that are now, well, gone! I like the grittiness of this shot.
Picturit: I see what you mean, Rob. Yes, that is all in the past now.... Thank you, Rob.

He seems to be a man with a mission!

Perhaps he walking quickly past the triffids that have taken residence on the building...
Picturit: He was, Cherry, Bill was trying to get back to the group fast... and yes you never know what flies from the roof.....

een knappe foto Astrid

jammer dat dit gebouw zo aan het verkrotten is

prettige dag
Picturit: Dank je wel, Willy. Eén van onze leden van de fotoclub "Shutterchance" in Engeland. Ja, jammer dat dit gedeelte van Bristol zo verwaarloosd is.
Geniet nog even van het mooie weer.

Boy, I bet that building has stories to tell!
Picturit: I think so too.... what a place that was.
