War and peace

By mrswoolybill
Tynemouth Castle, Tynemouth Priory
A different frame to last Saturday's, taken a little to the right; a bit more width for a square crop. B&W will follow at a later date.
The version - fifty years ago today. I had already selected and titled the main upload when I decided to add this, I'm not sure whether they relate to each other...
Thanks for looking,

As I was looking at the image I thought war and peace. Then I scrolled down to the title, job done...

War and Peace could also describe the past 50 years? Or is it strictly a case of peace in our time...
Many congrats!
The Phoenix has arisen from the ashes.
For what it's worth from me I think the two are entirely complimentary. Heartiest congratulations and thank you for sharing.

Heartiest wishes for celebrating 50 golden years of your glorious companionship..
Happy anniversary!
🤵 👰
P.S. and as a wise man once said, "Winning the peace is harder than winning the war"

Shotgun wedding? No surely not.... Many congratulations 😁. Hope the sweep continues to bring good luck 🤞

Two interesting images Moira. I find old wedding photos fascinating. My local art group had a lock down online exchange of wedding photos, some faces recognisable, some less so. I find the 'sweep' charm interesting in that I think it might be frowned upon nowadays sadly.

A very well suited pair indeed, Moira. (You and Bill I mean.) Wink
A very happy anniversary to you both and, judging by your main upload, you aim to stay together.
Have a lovely day.

Not a shotgun marriage? Sorry a bit of a cliché? Many congrats on the special occasion, to you both.

Two images that work very well together. What would marriage be without a bit of battling. It's so fun to make up and have peace. Congratulations on a special anniversary. Wishing you many, many more.

Thanks everyone, and special thanks to Ollie and Trevor for their UAs.
The sweep was a present, I think it came from an old lady who lived round the corner from Bill's parents. Not my sort of thing but I couldn't very well turn him down

I love the composition of your gun picture, Moira, but am even more interested in your version, such a lovely couple. Not sure I would have recognised them as the Woolys if I weren't told.
