one careful owner ( i )

i nearly walked past this ... then realized i was looking at a grime-free working antique ... a bit like me but probably twenty years older ... the owner is clearly someone who doesn't need to make a fashion statement with a new bike ... this expertly maintained old bike, its patina and blemishes invisibly varnished, tells you such a lot about his discreet good taste and skill

one careful owner ( ii )

one careful owner ( iii )

one careful owner ( iv )

reminds me of a place i went to eat once or twice ... almost a million miles from ulan bator

me and my big mouth

on the crest of an astonishingly pompous impulse, i mistook a pub in Wandsworth Road for this one in Charlton as recently featured by Tom Sutpen in his ever-stimulating blog "if charlie parker was a gunslinger ..."
i'm still blushing

up in the clouds ... tremedal

derelict railway at guadalupe ... allegedly built by prisoner slaves after the civil war

tempus fugit ... a decaying church with a fully atrophied sundial at deleitosa

a hollow tower at bruton

a three sided tower at stourton

it was six in the morning. "Are we ready to rock'n'roll ?"

... asked the efficient looking man with the clipboard at goods-in.

"Well, yes ! In a manner of speaking ...", I replied somewhat hesitantly, pointing down to my regulation industrial footwear
