June 2017 Travel Photo of the Month

Image

With the first day of summer being a week away, I am thinking about vacations, traveling, and spending time outdoors–or at least poolside!

June’s Travel POTM™ is a simple photograph taken on a business trip several years ago to Leicestershire, England. My company at the time had an office in the amazingly worded town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, and while accommodations at the Fallen Knight (now permanently fallen…and closed) were adequate, I stayed in Market Bosworth.

My British colleagues recommended I stay at Bosworth Hall Hotel and Spa, and after looking at the picturesque countryside views, I concurred. I remember strolling through the grounds taking photos, then wandering into the village to inspect my surroundings. Here in Market Bosworth, known best for a weekly market on Wednesdays, I found this lovely sight that has become one of my favorite travel photos. And in honor of spring and our impending summertime, I share it with you.

Travel Photo of the Month: October 2014

October’s Travel Photo of the Month (POTM™) is a favorite of mine, although it is “not a photo opportunity.” It was taken in London in March 2006, and since then, I’ve occasionally seen this stenciled phrase in random spots. I believe it’s been attributed to Banksy, a UK artist turned activist, who’s graffiti is now viewed as art. Regardless, this month’s POTM™ is certainly a fantastic photo opp.
