For today’s visual adventure on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to show us some interesting buildings and I found a few at the weekend so I’ll show you mine if you’ll show me yours.
First, the imposing facade of Heanton Court, the pub and restaurant Audrey and I rode to on Saturday, along the Tarka Trail cycle path, for a spot of lunch.
Next, on the way home we explored the wooded borders of the riverside trail and discovered an overgrown stone building…
…which on closer inspection, turned out to be an old lime kiln.
Returning to Barnstaple along the river, I snapped two more, distinctly different styles of architecture; this old Victorian building complete with intact dovecote on the roof…
…and the sleek art deco lines of this old cinema (now a nightclub) , gleaming white in the sunshine.
Onwards to the town square and the “Three faced liar”, officially the Albert Memorial clock tower, but known by its nickname to locals due to three of the four clock faces consistently showing the wrong time.
As a bonus, I captured the newly updated graffiti mural under the tall concrete bridge on the river; Audrey loved the fire-breathing tiger.
And last week, Rhonda, Audrey and I set off on an early morning drive to central London, to renew Audrey’s passport at the hugely impressive new American Embassy in Vauxhall, so of course I snapped a couple of shots there, too.
K’lee builds on the theme HERE, but now you can show us yours.
To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, (or just, you know, whenever) add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.
Wow! Great selection.

I liked the entrance to the lime kiln. It looked like a mysterious tunnel into a cave.
My contribution seems to have disappeared, it doesn’t show up in the WordPress reader and in the list of published posts shows up as posted two days ago. Maybe it’s a WordPress problem and not a flaky internet connection.
