A fuel Leak in the supermarket car park


Yesterday a heavy mist descended and it rained all day.
All colour drained from from the city streets,
 but at least it the wet tarmac made this leak more colourful.

They're Off!


The 2014 Christmas Hurdle Race has started.
The first of the Fun Fair rides, like these Gallopers, has arrived.
The open-air ice rink has been built, and is already packed with children 
on their Autumn Half Term Holiday.


Is it just me, or does the commercial Christmas season start earlier every year?

Symbiosis?



 "Celebrity Chefs" endlessly praise the virtues of "locally sourced" ingredients.
I wonder how symbiotic the relationship between these two businesses is?

The Shanty Men


I love kids, but they are a tough audience.

Bric-à-brac


I came across these two interesting stalls at a recent "antiques" fair.

Euphonium


                                          You blow through here
                                          And the music goes round and around
                                          Whoa-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho 
                                           And it comes out her.

Long John Seagull


This notorious  one legged "pirate" is looking for unsuspecting victims
as they eat their lunch along the quayside.

This was probably the very last chance to sunbathe.


Until a few days ago there was still considerable warmth in the late October sunshine.
But since then we have been battered by high winds and torrential showers 
as the remains of ex Hurricane Gonzalo swept across the city.
