Hello John, thank you for the mention.
This is a lovely example of a half timbered building. And what a beautiful bay window. The brickwork with it’s attractive design is a winner too; there must have been someone with the skill to lay bricks.
I love the way that the wood warps and creates those lovely uneven lines.
The lady walking into the scene is a bonus.
Lovely work.
Keep safe, kind regards Jean.

Hello Jean,

Thank you again for your kind words.

Strangely enough, as soon as I saw this building it was the name of the restaurant that caught my eye - we, of course, are familiar with the name Gert here on TE but I'm not aware of that name in the U.K., are you? Or could it be short for Gertrude? Or something to do with Gertrude Bell ("Queen of the Desert") and Henry Cardogan? Who knows.

Yes, I was just trying to catch a quick shot, that lady walked in front of me and appeared in the shot. In days gone by I would have been annoyed but nowadays I think you're right in that she probably is a bonus and adds a little "human interest". A camera club judge would hate an inclusion like that - but who cares if we like it?

Oh, just another thing - we didn't go into the restaurant - which, perhaps is just as well because I see TripAdvisor reviews of the place are generally pretty poor.

Many thanks once again, Jean.

You take care.

Kindest Regards,
