    The Great Golden Royal Ruby River Wall of Thai China. That's not its real name, but it changed hands so many times before finally closing its doors that we could never remember which name was current and so used them all.

    You may be onto something there - there was a broken plastic fork the other week - perhaps it's a Geller protegé who's run out of spoons?

    One from this morning - part of an entirely different set, but it fits the theme:

    That's a very interesting effect on the glass there! I have a broken window pane in the stairwell coming up to the flat and I photographed it last week sometime but I don't think it's doing anything that intriquing!

    It's a very odd effect - I suspect that the glass has some sort of coating that's causing the 'frosting' around the radial splits.

    Today was my last day at my current place of work - they're moving me to another office from tomorrow - so since I've been walking the same route from the bus stop to the office every morning for the past five years I decided to take photographs of everything I usually look at during the walk on my last morning.

    Cheers, Jeff

    Yes, it almost looks like it has had sticky backed plastic or some such thing on it.

    Love the idea of a last long look at a regular haunt. I took some images of our old house on our last day. Actually I woke up at about four in the morning and took some - they are strange to look at because although they depict something incredibly familliar to me, they were taken at a time of night I don't usually see it and in a state of emptiness that is also alien. I haven't looked at them since I took them though - might be time.

    Well, I've two offerings, the first I don't think highlights the 'Damage' aspect shows up that well, and I took it too late to enter the 'Abstract' comp....

    However yesterday, to my surprise, I spotted this, which I am amazed has managed to survive as long as it has, so I'm calling it:

    I seem to recall that there is, or was, a plastic film which could be stuck onto windows so that in the case of breakage etc. there would be no problems with glass all over the place and - I think this was the main reason - that break-ins would be more difficult.

    I had a little walk today up to the castle. Turned down the soup at the cafe and went to my favourite Thai haunt instead. Much nicer!

    The first one of these strikes me as being rather amusing Catriona, as it seems to imply that someone like the NT, is converting a badly designed path, back to its original natural state.
