Guilty Pleasure Part 3-Sherlock Holmes

22 Jul

I have blogged about my of Sherlock Holmes before, here is the link for those of you who haven’t read it: https://daydreaminginwords.wordpress.com/2013/01/31/sherlock-holmes/ So rather than cover old territory I just wanted to add a few photos. They are photo’s that I took on the two occasions when I visited the Sherlock Holmes Museum in London http://www.sherlock-holmes.co.uk/home.htm I wont show the entire museum because that would spoil the fun for those who wish to go.

The first time I went I was with someone who wasn’t a Holmes fan and they thought I was a bit weird because I was in my element. That’s why Holmes is a guilty pleasure. When I was younger it wasn’t something my age group was in to. Victorian literature wasn’t high on the average school kids agenda. Obviously by the time I was in my 20’s I was still living away from the mainstream. I just really enjoy the beauty of Victorian language and the idea of a crime being solved entirely with intelligence in the days before DNA testing and computer databases and internet search engines!
