Well, I have never owned a dog. I have always been a bit fearful of them, strangely. I have a cat. The only dog photos I have are some waiting in the street for their shopping owners……
Thank you Ailsa for getting me to hunt out dog pictures http://wheresmybackpack.com/ I quite liked the husky duo with their beautiful coats….
A final meander and a few quirky things spotted around the grand estate.
It was a slightly hazy day and not much drama with light and shadows but plenty of statues lending their own drama to the scene. Most of the figures are Italian marble and would have originally been pure white.The marble is constantly being cleaned on the classical statues and in the most basic way with a toothbrush and water ( I am no expert but some conservation work is not as glamorous as it sounds!). Each statue takes eight hours or so to clean and they are not taken back to their original whiteness.
