This group was started on July 9th, 2012 and currently has:
Quintessentially British ...
What does the term Britain conjure up for you? Classic icons such as the Mini, Beefeaters, Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben), The London Eye, or maybe the more mundane, like the Chopper Bike, Marmite or Wellies? Perhaps you think of strawberries at Wimbledon, tea in a cup or mug, pork pies, bangers and mash or a pint of Flowers or Boddingtons? Or maybe portraits are your thing - the The Beatles, The Stones, or even Oscar Wilde? Who knows, just let your imagination flow and see what you have got!
I hope this will be a fun group and you do not have to be British, or based in the United Kingdon (UK) or its constituent parts: England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland, to be a member. Your image does not have to even be taken in Great Britain but it does have to be relevant to this group, representing something quintessential about being British.
Note: For those of you that seem to struggle with the concept - Ireland (Eire) is NOT part of Britain, although Northern Ireland (Ulster) is.
Note: If there is no obvious connection please put something meaningful in the image description so I can see it is appropriate, otherwise I will reject it.
And, as we used to say back in Essex - No filth -, obviously.
Upload your relevant images of what it means to be Quintessentially British here for us all to enjoy.
Update 1: Please be selective in your choices of images to upload. I am looking for quality, quirky and quintessential not just quantity and I reserve the right to reject or remove any image whatsoever, especially if I think someone is taking the mickey.
Update 2: Any image uploaded will also be manually pinned by me to the Quintessentially British pinterest board if you have that FAA setting enabled AND if you tell me in the Pinterest discussion thread.
Update 3: I am starting to get annoyed by some members who insist on submitting images unrelated to this fairly simple, and wide-ranging group theme. Such images will be removed from the group and repeated disregard for the rules will result in expulsion,. Come on folks, it's not THAT difficult.
