Crystal Chandelier

By NDODS    
An image which I captured a little while ago whilst paying a visit to a Charles Darwin's House which is part of the National Trust.

Everything went well in London yesterday which was a great relief. However the trains were somewhat of a blooming nightmare. Evidentially it was the wrong type of snow on the tracks and leaves in the Ticket Masters Office.

Thank you for all you comments regarding yesterdays somewhat macabre or indifferent upload.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day ahead, for me I am off for a much needed walk along the marshes made famous by Charles Dickens in 'Great Expectations'

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Reminded me of an old country and western tune my Dad used to play - something about a crystal chandelier lighting up paintings on a wall. Moira

Funny how the name Charles is associated with this image Nathan, as I believe 'Charlie Rich' did the original of the Song.
