Above is a photograph of John Shakespeare’s house which is believed to be William Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon. Although I had visited this house before as a child I didn’t remember very much about it. It was quite a surprise to see how modern the areas just in front, to the left and right of the house are. Almost like an out door shopping mall with modern-ish looking museums, cafes and gift shops. My photograph of the Globe Theatre in London is one of the most searched of my photographs, so I was very keen to capture more of the iconic buildings that represent this world famous poet and playwright.
