For the past few weeks, Wikipedia has been running a banner along the top saying, “Wiki Loves Monuments,” their annual push to get photos. I followed the link looked to see if there were any places located near me. There was on a few blocks away, so yesterday I took my camera and headed out to take a picture of a place called Charlcote House. It’s apparently notable because of the architect. It’s surrounded by a high brick wall and was difficult to photograph. There was really only one possible angle, although I tried a few and circled around the block a few times. Here’s some of the pictures I took yesterday.
I heard a loud squawking overhead and looked up. A flock of Canada Geese were flying surprisingly low.
This is the house I went to photograph. It really looks like just a big, fancy brick house with neo-classical details. I was a bit disappointed.
The trees were casting some interesting shadows across the road.
The leaves are starting to turn and I was taken by the colors.
What is a walk without squirrels. He was hiding on the other side of the tree. I’m sure the neighbors would have thought I was crazy if they’d stepped outside and heard me saying, “Come here. Let me take your picture.”
Squirrels’ favorite food. They can digest mushrooms that would kill humans.
