It’s been difficult to get the motivation to get out and about with my camera of late (added to which I have been extremely busy at work, and unable to get out at lunchtime). The result is quick snaps taken indoors before I head off to the office, which has produced some interesting results. (Motivation, please come back to me soon!)
A bit of a mystery with these two photos. Again, they are ones I picked up in a junk shop, both feature women from (perhaps) the 1920s or 1930s with collecting tins, but I cannot quite make out what the are collecting for… I thought the taller image might have been Suffragette, but that doesn’t seem to sit right, and it looks like Queen Mary on the collection tin!
Reblogged for Ascension alone!

So I phoned X.
“Hi, yes, it’s been a long, long time. Great to talk to you. No, really? You should have beeped the horn or something. Well, you know, got the driver to. Yes, I’m working for [this arts organisation]. That’s right. It’s run by artists for artists. And I thought you could benefit by joining – we have a lot of experience protecting artists’ rights – and, of course, it would mean a lot for us to have you as a member.”
A host of randomness…
A bit of a catch up today, and ten images taken during February. It’s a bit of an eclectic mix, taking in Worthing, Haywards Heath and Bristol. Total randomness, but which do you prefer? Click on the images to see a larger version and make your choice below.
It’s been a while since I posted an old image, but this one caught my eye in a local junk shop. It screams 1950s at you, and the home owner’s pride in their kitchen. Their son, however, doesn’t seem quite as impressed…
To round off the week, a couple of unusual takes on Glastonbury Tor. There are plenty of photographs of this impressive structure around, particularly given it can be seen for over 15kms away, standing proud in the Somerset levels. As ever, I was after something different, a new take on an established theme. A sunny day during my recent visit to the town gave me ample opportunity, so here are the church’s shadow from the top of the Tor, and an inverse reflection in the fishpond of the Abbey grounds.
So, then, 400 down and one 100 to go on this second challenge. The countdown starts here…
This does what is says on the tin, really; Glastonbury Abbey reflected in the grounds’ fish pond.
