    Default Around Totnes

    A few pictures taken around where I live.

    At one time most Town Centres in the UK had a Sweet Shop. The classy ones called themselves Confectioners.



    A closer look at those suckers.

    The top of Totnes High Street narrows until it becomes known as...

    The Narrows

    with Totnes Castle looming behind.

    Great shots Phil...love the last one of 'The Narrows' isn't it a shame that they have to put down yellow lines in such a beautiful arc of buildings... still has the peaceful look about it though...

    There's lots of places in Totnes Fore Street/High Street worth photographing, but to get them with no people or vehicles you really need to be about early on a Sunday morning, as I was this week. The weather was beautiful and clear when I took these; within an hour it was what my grandad called "baby weather": wet & windy.

    Understand what you're saying about being early...as an aside...I'm getting my film cameras out...the 35mm Canon outfit isn't a problem ~ films cheap and easy to get done ~ and with a great scanner here, can do what I want with them ~ but my big stuff ~ like the Bronica [which weighs a ton] is now very expensive to use ~ it costs around 35 to get one roll of film developed and printed ~ but will use it for special stuff [having taken a digital first to make sure all's in place.

    I thought you'd appreciate the close-up of Cranch's window Char, as you use the emoticon so often.
