Photo Hunt - Free

The theme for the week's Photo Hunt is Free. so here goes


Brian Haw exercising his right to free speech outside Parliament


A detail of a drawing given to me by my friend Elahe Heidari


Or perhaps I could look at what I can see for free near where I live. Above is the mediaeval church of St Andrews in Hornchurch


Or perhaps enjoy the rare black poplars on the Chase in Dagenham


Or walk along the banks of the Rom near the Chase.

Free is what you make it

Mother nature is something that is hard to put a price on, and it was wonderful to see a picture of someone exercising his right to free speech.

Steve Bates said...

Those trees are very poplar, I'm sure. Wretched puns aside, the pics are great, jams.

I like your take on Free! Your photos are excellent and your philosophical angle thoughtprovoking.

What a thought provoking article, great shots too.

I love your nature shots, Jams, especially the black and white. We need not go very far to see nature's beauty -- it's all right there in front of us, if we only take time to look.
Enjoy your weekend.
