The Flower Shop On The Bridge

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek


All photos copy right of Maggie May.


By now, people will know that I do love the city of Bath in Somerset. I go there a lot.
I was drawn to Pulteney Bridge, last time I visited. Go here if you want more information.



At the back of the shops is a drop into the weir. Last Wednesday I used a photo of the weir for the Watery Wednesday meme. Here.




However, at the front there is a busy shopping community, all built on a bridge!
It was a flower shop that caught my eye.



Crossing the street I ventured closer and using my new camera, which is a digital Pentax P70, I zoomed in on the flowers. There were so many people about that I had to wait a long time for the shop to clear of pedestrians passing by.



Maybe I should zoom in a bit more. It is a lovely shop, don't you think?

These flowers are absolutely beautiful. I could look at those gorgeous colors all day. I am loving your photography. Flowers make me happy.

It is beautiful. I live in a rural area, but the closest town is a tourist destination, and it also has a bridge with shops inside. The building is made of wood, though.

Ok, so I am a huge Jane Austen fan, as alot of others are too, and I have always wanted to go to Bath, I mean it must be wonderful, all of her character (ok not all but a lot) go there! Great pictures, and they aren't helping me with not wanting to go there! Those flowers are beautiful!

Another wonderful glimpse into your world. Love the flower shop!

It's gorgeous. I also love Bath. Do you have a photo editing program? I use that to play with the zoom after I have taken a photo by cropping incrementally to see what happens.

The flower shop is very neat, so colorful. The bride is very unique, would be a cool place to visit.

Beautiful, well done, such a colourful shop and hardly a tourist in sight!!

Rose said...

Beautiful photos, Maggie May! I love the medieval-looking bridge, though--nothing quite that old to see in the US.

Jeni said...

Great pics -again, Maggie. I loved the bridge and also, the flower shop pics. Every. Last. One.! You did a terrific job with these shots and post!

You inspire me to want to go out and take many pictures myself. Now I just need to go out and do it. I'm always saying things like this.

The flowers are beautiful. You are making me home sick. If I can be home sick for some where that I have not lived for some time. I think that it is time that we planned a trip to Bath.

A very pretty place to pass the time! Love the flowers and the buildings are so awesome!

Moannie said...

Don't worry, they zoomed beautifully for me. Ah, Bath!

Hi Maggie
The photos are really super and your camera gives great definition. I wonder how many pixels. I have just bought a new camera and I am thrilled with it - a Panasonic DMC-F562 with 10 Mega Pixels.
Love this post of Bath ~ Eddie

Wendy said...

Beautiful indeed! I love flower shops. Keep think I should work in one! Then I'd always be surrounded by fresh flowers.
Your pics are awesome. Love your new camera.
Have a nice weekend!

Lynne said...

A lovely bridge and a lovely shop.
I have been trying banana skin on my mosquito bites. It seems to offer a little respite.

Carol said...

Beautiful photos, per usual, Maggie. I got an eerie feeling of deja vu when viewing that shop. Hmmmmmm....

I love Bath, Maggie. I must go back especially to look at the Roman bits.

I once organised a hen party (of all things) in Bath. We hired a double decker bus for the girls. It was great fun. Must go back there soon!
