Hope you are all enjoying a ghoulish evening......!
I have a very grave picture for you all tonight.....
Taken in the cemetery next door to the Brontë sisters house in Haworth, Yorkshire.
Don't forget to do the MONSTER MASH tonight!!!!!
|I went scrabbling around the loft to find my own copy of the one used in the British Library!!|
|Great example of the colours chosen by John Hinde. ©www.johnhindecollection.com|
|Red and yellow were often chosen as they stood out the most on the postcard stand! ©www.johnhindecollection.com|
|A typically mundane scene, but with the colour added becomes a stunning picture. ©www.johnhindecollection.com|
|The photographers would often get people to stand around to add interest to a picture! ©www.johnhindecollection.com|
|Gloriously cheesy postcard!! ©www.johnhindecollection.com|
|Another fairly boring photo, somehow transformed into a stunning masterpiece! ©www.johnhindecollection.com|
|I love this card, the monorail adds to a classic Hinde combination of people, colours and an impossibly blue sky! ©www.johnhindecollection.com|
|This is a great example I found on my recent trip to Dorset, giving you multiple scenes and colours.|
|This is a stunning picture of Piccadilly Circus, giving you a hint of the other side of Hinde's work.|
|An impossibly atmospheric scene looking towards Worbarrow Bay, near the abandoned village of Tyneham.|
|The majestic ruin of Corfe Castle, looking down from West Hill.|
|My favourite tree in Dorset! Just outside Abbotsbury at the foot of Chapel Hill.|
|A close up view of the mysterious St Catherine's Chapel.|
|A lonely pillbox still stands guard on Chesil Beach.|
|Vintiquers paradise is to be found at Brewers Quay in Weymouth!|
|A fantastically British scene here. The grim determination to enjoy your seaside holiday and eat your chips, despite the rain and gale force winds!!|
|There was FUN to be had at the amazing Bridport Antiques Centre. Unbelievably soon to be demolished to make way for a housing estate. Words fail me.|
|This is the lovely chapel at Eype, where PJ Harvey recorded her Let England Shake album.|
|Here lies a bit of Thomas Hardy, (his heart actually), the rest is at Westminster Abbey...|
|A rusting Victorian grave in the atmospheric churchyard at Osmington.|
|Whatever you do, don't mess with the bridges in Dorset! This beauty is at Lower Bockhampton.|
|Giant Ladybirds were spotted on the golf course at Weymouth!!|
|Amazingly this clock tower used to be at London Bridge, until moved to Swanage. A pillbox keeps it company in its new home.|
|Evocative steam train at Swanage, what an absolute joy to travel by steam.|
|The setting sun sweeps across the fields at Swyre Head.|
