I've had a few days away from instagram to look after little m during half term and edit my photos from our winchester break. as always i wish i'd taken more, but i keep looking at this one which captures both the interior and exterior of the @janeaustenshousemuseum
at the same time. it sums up the strange feeling i had of being simultaneously in the past and the present while there (and of course also when reading austen's books!) #whpsplitscreen

I like the different layers your picture shows and also it captions. japanese litt which i’m addicted to, always gives me that feeling 🖤
This is a beautiful photo! i love that it captures the indoor and outdoor at the same time. -s
Beautiful light filtering that the door on those lovely flag stones. i wonder if jane enjoyed a morning cup of tea at that table!❤️
It’s really different. everyone loves it!
Hope you had a lovely break away mel, love how your time was so culturally rich and how you share it with us. there’s been more than one occasion that i’ve been introduced to places i’d never have know about through you. the light in this picture also makes me feel happy, i feel it’s like one of those lovely pre spring days, so fresh and shiny!! x*x
Great that you are back 👌 the picture is beautiful, the light, the reflection 💜
Brilliant picture! i love that sense of two worlds that it evokes, as you mention. so very apt! 😍
So much beauty inside this photo!!!! i’d like to have a big print of it hanging on the walls of my flat!!!! hope m is fine 😘😘😘😘😘
I used to work as a steward at jane austen’s house in chawton. i’m so glad that you enjoyed your visit there! it’s truly a thrill to see the belongings and homes of beloved authors.
