The Gallery: Picture Postcard

I've spent the last five days trying to work out which picture to use for the fantastic theme set by Tara for the special 100th edition of The Galley. I have really struggled because to me a postcard picture is a landscape, and I've used many of mine before for other Gallery themes or for Wordless Wednesdays. And so the one Gallery that I really wanted to take part in started slipping through my fingers.

And then I followed Tara's e-mail of the post over to her blog and looked at her picture, and the reasoning behind her choice:

"Is there anything finer than the great British seaside?"

And it hit me!

The photo that I have had in my 'pictures->blog->spare photos' folder since last July would finally get to be shown. So thank you Tara for reminding me of one of my favourite photos of one of my favourite locations. I can't wait to visit it again in a fortnight:

Lyme Regis, Dorset.

    Love the bunting, and the hint of beach/sea in the background. Have never been to Lyme Regis but my mum loves it so on the list of places to go some day…

      Thank you, the photo was taken during a festival or regatta but I believe it stays up all Summer long.

    That is a winning photo right there! I also chose a seaside photo . I like the flag colours and how you see glimpses of the red, white and blue in the buildings too. Lovely

      Thank you. I love reading comments like this where someone has actually seen something I haven't in it.

    What a lovely picture, it looks beautiful there! I have never been but I want to go now! 🙂

      Oh you must go one day. It's fantastic! Along to the right is The Cobb where they filmed French Lieutenant's Woman, and they have also imported tons and tons of sand from France to create one of the few sandy beaches along this stretch of coastline.
