Bond, James Bond

Number 18 Melbury Road in West Kensington. This was the home of the pre-Raphaelite painter William Holman Hunt, and here the young Virginia Woolf had lessons in deportment from Mrs. Holman Hunt. In 1923, MI6 (the British secret intelligence service made famous around the world by James Bond) moved here for a year from central London. The house has been converted to flats.

Photographer: Passante of Passante’s World. This doorway is in London, UK.

Photographer: Terry LeBlanc of Giclee Stockholm.

The streets of Stockholm are so narrow that it’s often impossible to get a shot of the entire doorway. Terry has developed a mixed media technique to combine elements of the scene into one image, which is explained here on her website.
