370 Bay Windows and Converging Lines

The thing about bay windows, especially those on the first floor they should be sat in to watch life. I’m not sure how long this building, this window has been here, but I think (I’d like to think) at least a couple of hundred years. I bet it has seen some sights. Not far from where this window sits (it’s above a Costa). I’m not going to do the timeline in detail, as I have that down as a possible future project but I will mention a couple;

948 The first known reference to Alverstoke & Rowner – Gosport doesn’t exist yet.

1417 First fortifications at Blockhouse – I doubt if the house that had this window even existed then. The town of Gosport would have been very limited in size, with most people living inside the ramparts that were being built around the town.

Life in the town I think would not have been particularly good. I might go on a bit about it but that doesn’t mean I’d like to lived then, Whoo no. There’s a kind of horrified fascination. Now, once again I find myself in a situation of not being too happy with what I’ve written, but I’m not going to delete it. I’ll use it as a reminder that if I am going to write about history, I need to be a little more specific in my research.

A short while ago, I took a picture of a set of red shutter blinds. It was cropped really tightly. I didn’t want to rush in to taking a series of similar pictures. Now, I took this one earlier today. But I don’t think it is as good as the red one – perhaps because it’s a grill rather than solid.

I am looking for other pictures, but my seeing eye really isn’t very good, but I haven’t given up. Too many of this type though could get boring, so I need to be careful.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
