You live in Westbourne?
How many of us in the Bournemouth, Chritschurch, Poole conurbation?
I'm near the Lansdowne now, but still shop at Branksome Tesco, Lidl and Homebase.
And they've used the very light traffic through town to redo the road markings at a usually very busy junction:
Though their kerning is a bit iffy!
NB: no particular political point intended by this picture. Not that my disclaimer will convince certain forumites...
They have no idea of how to space letters though !!!! It is L OOK left
And it is crying out for some googley eyes in the O's
I remember Weymouth, when I and my (now parted) gf/wife started going out we went to Weymouth Sea Barn farm camp site for 9 years running, I REMEMBER the train in the town
Even the woman in the car park now a nature area ! remembered us each year, now it is too built up for me
I saw a video of a guy painting the little bicycle in a cycle lane. He did it freehand. I thought it would have been done with some sort of stencil or template, so it was very impressive to watch.
I’m between westbourne and alum chine
Small world, as a kid .I sang in the choir at St Ambrose, even went carol singing along Portarlington rd and Marlborough rd one year, some very generous houses.
Moved on from infra red...
Now trying macro with a pair of Raynox lenses and also some tubes (11mm and 16mm)
These are all Raynox with a Fuji x-e3 and 15-45, and 16-50

Did a bit of baking this morning - actually started last night, you have to soak the fruit in cold tea overnight - a nice Yorkshire (they claim) Tea Loaf.
Can't eat it all as I'm having trouble keeping my weight down, so help yourselves to a slice...
That looks delicious!
It is rather nice - but should keep up to two weeks in a sealed container. I hope so or my waistline is going to turn into an equator!
It's from the recipe in Fast Cakes by Mary Berry - can't find the recipe online, at least not that one. The recipe for Perfect Scones in the same book is a good one too - even works for me, apart from the fruit scones - whatever I do, the fruit sinks to the bottom.
Playing with extension tubes...
Looks lovely. Known as a brack here. The one I buy is stuffed with fruit and delicious. I know the baker's brother, so very pukka! Ha!
In Wales it's known as Bara Brith (which I always confuse with B'nai B'rith - something else entirely!). It's a fairly common sort of thing, most places have a version of it, just that the Yorkshire mob tend to be a bit possessive about it...
I'm thinking of going experimental and trying an 'exotic' one, if I can get hold of some dried banana/mango/pineapple/whatever and soaking them in lemon tea (or rose/jasmine?) instead of the ordinary blend. Maybe even one with dried peppers/ tomatoes - not sure what I'd soak them in though. More news as and when...
I like those Andrew
Earl Grey would be interesting too?
Or possibly Lady Grey - more citrusy, uses lemon rather than bergamot.
