ART

'ART' and red rabbits stencilled onto brick wall in shelter with benches

Sitting here you see the Fleet Lagoon and Chesil Beach ahead - but I doubt many people see the bench - or the art!

WHAT TO DO WITH FORTIFIED WALLS

Looking out from Waterstones Bookshop Cafe at the old walls of Southampton across new steps to precinct.

View from a bookshop cafe of the fortified walls of Southampton.

Incidentally . . . this is another picture where, if I were to change it for 'the better' . .  it would be to change it to 'less interesting'.

WHAT TO DO WITH A TORPEDO

Ichthyosaurs with throne as driving seat - Andy Kirkby sculpture, Weymouth

What do do with a torpedo? Turn it into a Jurassic monster with a throne on! (Ichthyosaur.)

REEDS AND CASTLE

Sandsfoot castle in background, remains of torpedo warning mid-view, reeds in foreground.

If you peer through the mist you can see the remains of one of Henry Vlll's castles (Sandsfoot). 
Three posts mid-distance used to hold a notice warning people of torpedo testing. 
And the reeds in the foreground edge what used to be a railway line between Weymouth and Portland.

PROOF OF EXISTENCE - SOUTHAMPTON RAILWAY STATION

An update on absence.

Top of carriage, roof with peeling pain, roof with railings, Southampton Station

Total and repeated technology failure has kept me off air for a while. It's been quite a while since my camera broke for a second time - and it may still be another couple of weeks before it comes back from the menders. In the meantime . . . I've borrowed a camera on a short loan - which means I can post a picture here today to show I've not forgotten you!
Depending on the weather and various other variables, more photos may follow . . . but even if they don't, don't give up on me. Hopefully I'll be up and running properly again soon.

To keep us going till things settle. . . here's Southampton Station a few days ago.

And here's a link to the latest post on my other blog, 
Loose and Leafy - Life on a Borrowed Camera.

Hope you are all ok - do say!
