    Ian I will try and put something on for you. But to yours, I think you’re really a big kid at heart and want to play with those toy cars. I love the hunour in them. Your giant centepede is a great insight in to curves and pattern. Well seen.

    What makes this photograph successful for me is that you’ve thrown the background totally out of focus. If it were any sharper it would have been distracting.

    Thanks very much, Peter. Yes, it’s intentionally soft and dreamy, as I imagine Lothlórien is. 😉

    Intriguing people! I bet you don’t pass them in the street every day, Bob!

    The picture is very nicely composed in the square frame, which works very well for this, and rather emphasises the old-fashioned look of the people. Of course, the light’s beautiful; but you nailed the exposure really well, despite all the potential risks due to the mirror balls. Lovely, coherent colour palette, and the textures in the clothes are beautifully rendered.

    [OK. So what’s really going on here??? 😉 ]

    How extraordinary! I love the humour in this shot and echo Ian’s comments on it being well exposed with contrasty light and well composed. You meet the strangest folk on your travels. Nice one Bob.

    Thanks Ian and Peter. This was a fun day out. The couple changed clothes in one of the old fashion bathing huts, into Victorian bathing costumes. went for a paddle in the sea, still with the head gear on. Then did a song and dance on the sea front, with the head gear off of coarse.

    Dovecote

     

    Built early 1600. One of the largest and most remarkably constructed and preserved dovecotes in Britain.

    Stone pillar was provided to support a ladder, giving access to the nests
