Tales from the City-a great man’s chair

Sir Winston Churchill’s favourite spot, a chair by his beloved goldfish pond. A few moments away from a troubled world in Chartwell Kent, to start off the week.

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    Oh, my. What I wouldn’t give for a few hours to sit in that spot. 🙂

  2. Now that is a nice spot to sit and gather one’s thoughts!

  3. I may print that second photo, Susan, and stick it on my wall next to my desk. How peaceful.

  4. Coincidence! I have been thinking about that beautiful, graceful house all day. I’d love to return this week sometime. Clem’s hand is everywhere: comfort, combined with easy style. What a girl.

    No wonder he was a great man! One particular thing I like about the English is their gardens. And a chair like this in one would be heaven!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
