The Tuesday Inspiration: There??s no place like home!

by Helen Hooker November. 23, 2010 4846 views

My photo today is a graphic depiction of where I live ?? the village of Fishbourne, on the south coast of England. This sign is positioned close to the edge of the village and depicts the meaning of the village??s name ?? a stream with fish. Fishbourne??s other major claim to fame is a Roman Palace which dates back to around 43AD. All that remains now are the wonderful mosaic floors and some of the artefacts which were discovered during its excavation in the 1960s. I also discovered from Wikipedia that there is a Fishbourne in New Jersey, USA, which was founded by folks from here ?? I wonder if anyone on Photoblog lives there?!

Thanks to Dorothe (Wasichseh) for setting today??s theme. Last Tuesday??s theme was ??Air??. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [photoblog.com].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stefan [photoblog.com] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.

Mmmm I think I would have expected something a bit more Roman for the sign. I think I should visit the palace again; I think I was at school last time I visited it.
