    Well, the Conservative Club is the obvious place to start looking for guilty parties...

    I still wonder why this was the view on the outside of a skip nearby.

    I found this at the base of a long-ruined mill down the road. The slate says"........ chdi ..... ....... Father's Day ..... .....".
    "chdi" is Welsh for "you".
    It wasn't there a couple of years ago. The ruin is not that easy to get to, along a footpath, down a very steep and rough path to the river.

    A grab shot, taken this afternoon as I was passing through Greyfriars Kirkyard in Edinburgh.

    You are in Scotland... I'll get me coat!
    (I do exactly the same, and Scots blood can only get 1/4 of the blame for that)

    Graffiti on the side of a builder's barrier/advert. I will have to go back and see what the sign actually said. I think the 'cons' comes from 'Construction' and the 'Pass' is from 'Passivhaus' which is the eco-friendly design the new park's pavillion is adhering to.

    An off the shoulder number. Wink, wink.

    Couldn't pass this without taking a photo.

    I have just thought how inappropriate the title of my photo is considering the doll/mannequin thing is supposed to be a child.

    Stop worrying, we know your preferences!

    Seriously, it never occurred to me to think of it as a child, just a rather horrible doll.

    I once did one of my humorous (loosely speaking) caption pictures with Hello Kitty inserted into the Electric Lady Land inner sleeve, then realised it might be considered inappropriate. Further research showed Hello Kitty to be about 40 years old!

    Anyhow, saw this while walking the L10 this morning...

    Interested me because I haven't seen one of the new Enfields about.
    And I can understand the exhaust pipes being 'lagged', but why the crash bars? :confused:

    Is it my imagination, or is he doing a bit of the ol' Riverdance? :cool:

    That's because they're mostly students and female, I see someone brought a flask! . . . .and they need to crack on, they're sitting where the foundations of a new hotel is going very soon!
