Welcome to '5 in 5' where on the 5th of
each month I post 5 photos that I have
taken in 5 minutes.


Where did the month go?! 
I had so much I wanted to share, but when life is even busier than usual it means there is less time for other things I want to do. And I bet that's how it is for you too!  
But even when I am busy I make time to pause and look around. So I was surprised when I attended a 2 day training in London to see most
people walk straight into the magnificent building where the event was held or barely glance at their surrrounding.

I gasped! 
Stood still and craned my neck.
Then reached inside my bag for my camera. Of course!
And after setting my timer for 5 minutes I snapped away. 
This is Holborn Bars. It's magnificent arched windows and entrance are just a hint of what lay behind the entrance..... 


I felt very privledged to be in such a beautiful building and the inside was just as breathtaking. Not one of my 5in5 photos, but I think this next photo also deserves a share. All the floors and walls were decorated in ornate tiles and the arched theme continues.

The training was good too!  


If this inspires you to pick up your camera and share come of your photos I would be truly excited! All it takes is five minutes and to follow the challenge this is what you do: 
1.  Choose a location.

2.  Have your camera ready.

3.  Set a timer for 5 minutes (I use my mobile phone).

4.  Take as many photos you can until the time is up.

5.  Choose 5 photos to download and share by using the link tool below. 

   Please note:
You have until the 25th of the month to add your photos to the link
and you can take  your photos any time. They do not have to be taken or posted on 5th!
If you'd like more details please go here.


I tried to visit as many blogs as I can and still have catching up to do. A special thank you to Maggie, Melanie, Eileen, Barbara, Karen and Borqna for joining in last month.  I love to see your different ideas and themes, and wonder what March will bring. I'd love for you to join in too, so just link your post below and I'll be straight over to see your photos!

Thanks for visiting and have a good week, what ever you do.


  1. I can't see the link, so just to say that I've just posted my 5 in 5 for this month.

    That building is incredible. What course did you do?

    1. I added the link Eileen but I see it is doing funny things. I will check this out, thank you for letting me know.

      I did an NLP course (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and I booked to do the Practitioner course later this year. Thanks to you Eileen I discovered a local group through Meet Up, and it is something I have always wanted to do.

  2. That is quite an incredible building. You are right of course so many people never look up and around them. It's good that this building still has a worthwhile use.

  3. My goodness, this is indeed spectacular! The Victorians really went to town, didn't they ... Glad there was someone like you to appreciate it :).

  4. What an amazing building! Looking forward to joining you again this month!

  5. This is a fabulous set. What a truly beautiful place. I am astounded by so many people who just don't look around them. I was in the Wills Memorial building in Bristol looking around, up and down snapping away when someone asked me what was I looking at!

    1. Isn't it amazing Miriam that people don't even consider that you are admiring the building! Thank goodness some of us can take a moment to appreciate and photograph.

  6. It's awe inspiring! Makes me wonder if it's one of the buildings the film makers looked at when they were planning the Ministry of Magic for Harry Potter

  7. I'm already here.
    Good luck, Sandie!
