I'm not sure if I managed *every* prompt last year, but I didn't miss too many - so I'm keeping up the good work and posting to catch up for last week as well as this.
Holiday needs a bit of explaining - this is a photo taken on Boxing Day (a bank holiday, within the bigger Christmas holidays season), and I was on holiday (i.e. not at work), and this building is very much on holiday. Even without blowing up the image to read the inscription, English people will probably guess that it was built as a school in the late 19th century - it's quite typical of that time and architecture. But it hasn't been a school for many years now, and is a retirement home these days. The people who live there are retired but still active - so you could say they are pretty much permanently on holiday (*grumble, grumble back to work tomorrow*)!( Collapse )
