A view looking back from the bridge over the Medway. We walked to the bridge which is just at the end of the high street, so I could take photos of the lions which decorate it, and which I see as I drive away and always mean to take photos of. The first lion is on a hotel at the end of the high street. I like the way there are lions decorating buildings wherever you go, and wondered why. Lots of answers here. I think this lion is couchant or dormant, or just having a sit down!
These lions look like they are guarding the bridge. Such fierce faces.
This one looks so noble, and quite Egyptian to me, especially with the stone work around him.
And this one is quite fierce from the front...
...but very cute from the back!
A group of pretty vintage clothes. I love the colour combinations.
Such sweet faces in the teddy bear shop.
The seemingly endless corridors of the bookshop.
A slightly embarrassed looking tiger in the Oxfam shop.
