Hughenden And West Wycombe

Had a day off last week so at my friend's request I decided to visit Hughenden and West Wycombe. I had been to Hughenden before a few years ago but it was pleasure to be reacquainted with the home of former Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. And perhaps even more appropriate to reflect upon some history in the present turbulent times. The favourite room for me was his magnificent and compact library, but there were plenty of mementos and gifts from Queen Victoria who seemed to have a particular fondness for Mr Disraeli. The grounds were immaculate as before and vibrant despite the overcast skies.West Wycombe is a quaint little village overlooked by some beautiful hills, themselves under the watchful eye of gracefully gliding kites. The house is still occupied and thus no photography was allowed inside, but the rooms were typically ornate and adorned with the usual assortment of paintings and ceiling murals. all images were shot on the Olympus E-M5 and the 12-40mm F/2.8.
