Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

If you’re ever in the village of Tattershall, Lincolnshire, UK, get ready to expect the unexpected!

It is a small village, home to 15th Century Tattershall Castle and early 16th Century Holy Trinity Church. Both well worth a visit. A couple of miles away is RAF Coningsby, home of the historic Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and Museum.

If you choose to visit the ‘Tattershall Park Country Pub and Kitchen’ for a meal, you should find a good atmosphere and enjoy the food. But it’s when you go to visit the toilet that you discover the unexpected!

I’d describe it as high-class rustic. Definitely bringing the outdoors, indoors! I couldn’t resist taking some photos with my iPhone 4. It’s the first (and probably last) time I’ve taken pictures in a public toilet. Fortunately, nobody walked in as I was taking the photos!

I’ve used Perfect Effects 4 to slightly sharpen the main image.

We do like to have our family barbecues, even out of season.


Sometimes Mother Nature has different ideas!


Luckily, our barbecue cooks straight from frozen!
