    These are the original gates to 'Strawberry Fields' which John Lenon of the Beatles made famous in the song of the same name.

    Here we are, my trusty S95 early one winter morning, no skill in taking the photo as it was the early morning light that made the colours on this one - no PP at all, just straight out the camera...
    This is the last example of a London Victorian Power station left in the City, also used on the cover of Pink Floyds 'Animals'

    Personally for me, this building really says something, it is grim, foreboding and yet beautiful in its own way and I love it....

    Makes me want to cry that they took the roof off and gutted a lot of the interior. :(

    The first lighthouse in the world to be built in the shape of an oak tree and to use dovetailed interlocking granite blocks, it guarded the Eddystone reef off Plymouth from 1759 until 1882 and was then re-erected on Plymouth Hoe.

    Not to be considered for voting, as I have once again failed to comply with the rules of the WC by not using a compact camera. Taken with a Canon 50D and 70-200 4.0 IS L.

    Regards,
