Photo Challenge: Split-Second Story, Take #2

Which photo tells the better story? This one?

Minack Theatre, Porthcurno, Cornwall, ENGLAND

Or this one?

Please ignore the tourist in the bottom left showing utter disregard for my dying scene.

Photos taken at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall.

This extraordinary theater was carved into a rocky seaside cliff almost single-handedly by Rowena Cade. Dragging shipwreck timbers up from the beach for building materials and converting a World War II gun post into a ticket booth she worked on her project on a piece of Cornish coastline bought for £100 in the 1920’s until she was well into her 80’s. It is still the venue for Shakespearean plays today. As you can see.

  1. You bloody nutter. I love this! Now I’m jealous. You were in my home region, and you got to play silly buggers there. And you have a husband who plays Romeo and Juliette. Harrumpf. I much prefer photo number two – sooooo dramatic, daaaarling 😀


    1. I’ve no idea. It’s a bit remote for U.S. TV. I fear the girls would break their ankles in their high heels (hahaha – typed a typo – high hells – that’s more like it!) on all the stone steps.


  2. I like the first one, so romantic, being proposed in this beautiful place, but when I saw the second one, I though maybe is a play not a real proposal.But your photos are beautiful, the water, sky and the theatre is marvellous.
