I have to start by saying photography is not my strongest subject, but hopefully through these 'snaps' I'll begin to learn what is a good picture and what's not!
There are so many interesting things to photograph in Winchester where to start... how about outside my front door...
Winchester has a number of areas, my favourite being Hyde to the north of the city centre. This suburb still manages to retain a tranquil air despite being only minutes from the centre. There are a number of interesting buildings and streets in Hyde - here's one in Victoria Road built into the walls of the former garden of Hyde Abbey House is this Jacobean monument. The original wall may be of Tudor origin.
