photoblog image The Mitford girls

The Mitford girls

Chris and Chad learn less about the Mitford girls from a local than they had hoped

After posting this I realised that this is my 1500th picture on shutterchance. How appropriate it should feature these two and be a daft picture Cool

A laugh out loud image to mark the milestone, Bill. Well done!
Bill Phillips: Well it had to be something silly.
Congrats on the 1500th pics Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mick. At least half of them are in focus too (Well OK maybe not quite that many)

I suppose they had to find out the facts at first hand, Bill.
Bill Phillips: They are now experts at all things Mitford related Ray
Everything about this is hilarious!
Bill Phillips: Good smile

Gefeliciteerd met jouw 1500e foto. Congrats in your 1500st picture. I think the local hides Deborah in his house...
Bill Phillips: They were a strange lot but Nancy wrote some great stuff

Congratulations on this BIG milestone, Bill, and on inadvertently including Chad and Chris. The Milford Girls remain mum about the whole thing, I see. smile
Bill Phillips: Their lips are sealed Ginnie

From the little I have been able to glean about you all, I must agree with your comment. Congratulations, Bill!

Meinen herzlichen Gl├╝ckwunsch zu Ihrem 1500th photo - das ist wirklich beachtlich!

I recognized the Mitford sisters you met on the royal wedding day -also a kind of protest? From my point of view it is not necessary to learn much about these eccentric and in some way mentally confused and ominous ladies! Sadly, I don't know the comic figure that might ironize/critisize the girls?
Bill Phillips: Sie sind unterbelichtet, aber Sie können immer noch erkennen die Stooges!
The other figure looks like someone you would not want to know!
Hahahaha.... Congrats on your 1500th post.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Jacquelyn

This is definitely

a) The worse picture of Chad & I that I have ever seen

b) Amongst the most very dire of your creations

c) A fitting tribute to your unique talent

Bill Phillips: All my objectives have been achieved then.
Great fun shot Bill. Congratulations on your 1500th!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Richard smile

Well done on no. 1500! I would like to say that each one has been a delight... well, I would like say it but....
Bill Phillips: were brought up not to tell lies
Blimey Bill. Have we had to suffer 1500 of your snaps ... But being in my dotage I suppose it has passed rather painlessly.
Bill Phillips: It beggars belief Richard.
I don't know the Mitford girls but your character with the crooked belly is just fine for a 15ooth shot.
Bill Phillips: If you get the chance read wigs on the green by Nancy Mitford

It could have been worse, much worse.
Bill Phillips: I suggest you tune in tomorrow to prove the veracity of that statement Louis

I rather like the underlying photograph with the two old soaks eyeing up the Mitford girls and dreaming....

Congrats on the 1500 ;o)
Bill Phillips: It started off properly and then nonsense took over

1,500 pieces of rubbish. That calls for a celebration Bill, congratulations.

I have warm memories of this place despite your efforts.
Bill Phillips: I feel i have maintained a consistent standard over the years Chad.
What great fun, Bill, to start the week off!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Neilsmile

Congratulations on the 1500th Bill smile
Bill Phillips: I never thought I would post 1500 pictures when i started!
Congratulation on your 1500 Bill. We have both worked hard at this - and had some fun.
Bill Phillips: Yes you beat me too it! It has been a lot of fun and I have made some good friends on Shutterchance
THe local brew seems to have the right effect smile
Bill Phillips: I seem to recall is was decent John smile
Congratulations on 1,500 Bill, I note you have included a friend in this picture, but who are those funny old chaps barging their way in to the picture from the left?
Bill Phillips: no idea Brian, probably local layabouts

Well done for the 1500 - here's to the next 1500 (though not sure if I can hang around that long on SC!)
PS The Mitford girls would have made a lovely picture without our intrepid pair and the cartoon character!
Bill Phillips: Posting every day that is over 4 years! I have got a couple of pictures of just the Mitford girls.
Here's to the next 1500!
Bill Phillips: one a day for the next four and a bit years.....oh heckgrin
congrats on 1500 an epic amount and a great photo to do it with
