#SundayStills ~ If only old buildings and objects could talk…what stories would they tell #Photography


Hugh from Hugh’s Views and News is hosting the Sunday Stills feature this week for Terri Webster Schrandt 

This week’s theme is OLD. What images are conjured up by that word? And what things do you consider to be old? My choices today, I think, definitely deserve to be classed as old.

The burial chamber, located on Anglesey, dates from the Neolithic age, so roughly 2000-4000 BC. I think we can safely say this is old!

The King stone forms part of a complex of standing stones situated on the Oxfordshire/Warwickshire border. This particular stone is thought to be Bronze Age, around 1,500 BC. The shape is due less to the weather and more to 19th century souvenir hunters and cattle drovers who chipped off pieces to act as charms. Later vandalism was also to blame.

This Ammonite came from the Jurassic coast, so probably hundreds of millions of years old.

The ruins of St Dwynwen’s Church on Llanddwyn Island. The island is rich in legends, most notably that of Dwynwen who is the Welsh patron saint of lovers, the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine.

  1. If nothing, I’ve learned that Dwynwen is the Welsh patron saint of lovers, Cathy. I’m glad we have a Welsh equivalent. I now need to find a card that says ‘Happy Dwynwen Day.’

    We’re so lucky to have so many old and historic buildings in Wales. I particularly enjoy exploring castles.

    Thank you for participating in Sunday Stills.
