Pagan Eye: A Collage of my Holiday Photos

I'm back from my holiday in Sussex by the sea! I had a lovely time, the weather was gorgeous, and I did a lot of walking and taking photos. Here's a collage of some of the pictures I took while I was away showing the blue sky, the sea, an elm tree, wildflowers on the South Downs, a footpath behind Pevensey Castle, a witch on the wall of the Beachy Head museum, and street art inspired by local archaeology. 

I'll be blogging more about the street art tomorrow, but as a brief explanation it was on a trail through Eastbourne called Walking Through the Town I Followed a Pattern on the Pavement That Became the Magnified Silhouette of a Woman's Profile. Yes, that's a really long title, but it is accurate!

The witch picture at the Beachy Head museum was part of a display about local legends and folklore, and included an animation about wind knots. Cunning women and witches by the coast would sell these to sailors to help them manage the weather. I've blogged about this type of magic in the past and you can find that here.

Although I took a break from blogging last week, I did share some more holiday snaps to Instagram - you can find me there as starzalucya.

On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it. I'm not quite sure what I'll be including - it could be a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event, or just a pretty picture. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.
