My picture of the day-Where's yours?

Discussion in 'Photo Gallery' started by bigjim, 10 Nov 2012.

  1. I had a ride over to see my buddy/work-collegue Chris, who's been off work for a while with medical problems

    During the visit I took a few pictures in his town

    Hillman Avenger, at a garage on ClunterGate

    The left-hand shop was a photographers/photography show
    It's certainly been closed a while, as the (painted) phone number is '0924'
    The '01...' numbers came into being in 1995 (I checked)


    The right-hand show was a Tobacconists
    It seems as though it's used for something now (storage?), as that window/blind look quite recent, & the door left that way for effect, or to make it look as though there's nothing work breaking in for?

    Funny how the world turns sometimes. The black Condor we've had for years but although it fits three people in the house no one rides it. Selling it though, requires fresh powdercoat as the original lacquer has yellowed badly and gone sticky. Weird. Anyway, I stripped it down ready for refinishing and that very day I happened across the blue one in the corner of a friend's workshop and purchased it from him for sixty quid. It's a cross bike which will get some extra braze ons to convert it into a tourer. It was as if holding a bare Condor frame magically attracted another one to me.

    No bike today to put in front of the church: Chew Magna. It looks like the tower is taller than the church is long.

    Here's one from today's outing - a bridleway I'd be seriously impressed if a horse could have navigated!

    Todays ride took me past the former RAF base at Upwood, Cambs. The infrastructure has long been derelict including what I summise is the commanding officers house, a rather large and imposing construction with quite a bit of ground. This is next to a main road for all to see. The whole site is rundown and vandalised so it brought a big smile to my face when I noticed that 2 sows, a boar and some piglets were free ranging in the grounds of this house. Excellent!

    We waited to see if the sun would come out.

    It did, but not on Severn Beach.


    PS, if you go to Severn Beach, even in the height of summer, don't bother to take swimming trunks.
