I took this picture on a bright sunshiny day. The flowers are blooming and the small breeze carried the scent of fresh cut lawn, flowers, and food from a near by pub. When I put this picture onto the computer it was less interesting than it was at the moment that I took it. I thought that it would be a good opportunity to try the painting technique in photoshop.
The cottage is located in a small village in North Hinksey, which has been seen on maps dating back to 1610. The area was also called Ferry Hinksey up until the 1920’s when the ferry stopped running. Ferry Cottage is thought to be built before the 1920’s and has kept the name reflecting the village name.
