Travel theme: Peaceful II

I thought I would give this week’s travel theme another go as I wasn’t entirely convinced by my earlier claim that an event taking place in the middle of Trafalgar Square could really be called ‘peaceful’.  This second attempt was taken from the southern banks of the Thames between Kew and Richmond, looking north across the river on one of the warmest London days this year.  The sugar pink walls, the watery reflections and the curtains drawn against the bright summer sun suggests quiet peaceful afternoons – Tales of the Riverbank brought back to life as a Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) climbs the steps for a closer inspection.

The building appears to sit within the grounds of Syon Park, home to the Duke of Northumberland:

    I like your second contribution a lot….this place looks as if it is situated in a very peaceful garden or park. Perfect place to escape to with a good book!

      Isn’t it just – as it is home to the Duke of Northumberland, I may have squatters rights 🙂
