I was looking for a picture from a past vacation when I stumbled upon my photos from a visit to Canterbury in the United Kingdom. Back in 2005, a group of us (Todd, Ryan (Todd’s brother) and Kim(Ryan’s wife)) took a trip on a sunny summer afternoon to Canterbury in England.
It was a glorious day. The sun was perfect to capture some of the old city’s landmarks. If you’ve never been to the England and all you know of her comes from history books and TV shows, then Canterbury is how you probably see England in your head.
There is something medieval and a bit spooky about Canterbury’s beauty. One can imagine ghosts roaming the street ready to jump out and scare you around the next corner or sneak up behind you and whisper “boo” in your ear. I kept waiting for knights dressed in their best armor to round the corner with their swords gleaming in the sun as they went about their daily exercises. On you next trip to England, you must stop by Canterbury.

Your pictures remind me of when I was in Europe. I don’t know much about photography but the shots look great dude!
Wow. What gorgeous pics. Wish I could have spent my Halloween night there! Thanks for visiting…
Welcome and thanks. 🙂
I Love Mr. Spider’s Home!….
Wow… Looks like a great place (for taking photos). 😀 I’ll put Canterbury in my ‘Go-to’ note.. 🙂
You should because it is wonderful.
I seriously fell in *LOVE* with your photography, buddy! 🙂 😉
Wow. Glad to hear it. Thanks!!
Beautiful photos. Great job. 🙂
Thank you Gabriel.
Love these! This former English major can still recite the first 20 lines of the Canterbury Tales in the original Old English…. thanks for the beautiful pics!
Wow, I don’t know if I could understand it much less recite it in Old English. Funny though, I did take Old French at Ole Miss. Hard class!
Thank you Beeseeker.
I was there in ’08 but it was gloomy cold yuck. Here the place looks awesome!
Thanks David. I’ve been lucky 90% of the time with the weather in England. Although one time I was laying over in Brighton and we had nasty weather with gale force winds.
I’m living in Bath in the Uk at the moment. Your shots are great. If your in this nape of the woods again you should have a look, you’d love it.
I would love to. Hopefully, I’ll make it back to the UK one day.
Very nice indeed, especially the view through the spider web. You would have enjoyed the view I got in a friend’s village in Hampshire,UK. It had been raining the night before and we were walking down to the high street when suddenly the sun shone down on the raindrops on hundreds of spider webs in people’s hedges. It was like seeing a million diamonds at once! 🙂
Thanks for visiting my new blog. I do Iove photos like yours, but you’ll never see them on Write On! I’m afraid.
Thanks Sue. I am glad you have joined us here! I look forward to reading your blog.
Canterbury was a favorite day, our last trip to the UK. We spent a couple hours wandering the cathedral with Father Ron, who never ran out of stories, historical details, or anecdotes. Lovely, lovely city.

I grew up in Canterbury and now live 4000 miles away from it! Thank you for these gorgeous pics of my lovely home town.

Amazing photos, especially the spider webs (although I wouldn’t want to see the size of its owner)!
I don’t remember the spider but I am sure it was very nice and welcoming. 😉

You are welcome. Thanks. 🙂
Beautiful shots of a magical place!
Yes it is a very magical place. Thanks.
England really has so many wonderful places to see and explore, doesn’t it? Last year we did a most wonderful tour on a narrowboat through the “Heart of England” [http://pitsbilderbuch.wordpress.com/2012/02/05/england-reise-fruhjahr-2011-134/], and for next year Cambridge actually is on our “must-visit” list.
Best regards from southern Texas,
Wow, lucky you. Can I tag along? 😉
I am so glad that I posted my prose so I came across your blog when you liked it ! Your photographs are so touching that they leave the most vivid impression on one’s mind.
What a nice thing to say! Thanks so much!
