I have been down to visit my little friends in the allotments fence again. I haven't uploaded them for a few years, but recently I spotted this line-up that I hadn't noticed before.
The allotments are no more, the land blighted by a redevelopment plan that fell through. But the fence has survived.
Colour to follow tomorrow, it's different.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

This side of the fence faces onto a car park. Whenever we stop there, I feel dozens of pairs of eyes are on us.

"Faces," rather than "in yer face," so could be too subtle for some.

Clever, very clever.

Quote: Why? The most boring photograph ever.

Sad comment. I find the real world endlessly fascinating, thought-provoking, inspiring. I know some people cannot see it that way and need fiction for their thrills. For me, that's their loss but it's a personal opinion.

Quote: A shame about the allotments. Were you and Bill among those railing against that decision?

Quite apart from the groan factor, it's an interesting question and the answer isn't as simple as you might think. The town is pretty well supplied with allotments, and the land here is poor. Ten years or more ago we were promised a Sainsbury's - this is just behind the main street, it would bring people into the centre. At the moment the Co-Op has a stranglehold on the centre, owning the only two general food stores (they bypass monopoly rules by using two different companies), and also owning a lot of the property on the main street. They keep shops empty rather than allow in anything that might compete. They fill their main supermarket with booze, ready meals and homeware that nobody buys. (You go to Newcastle for a decent choice for that.) As a result a recent survey showed only 5% of the population actually shopping in the town. The Co-Op put up a desperate legal fight, and they have a bunch of quite aggressively vocal supporters. Sainsbury eventually pulled out so there isn't a tenant... I'm not a supporter of the big chains but we do actually need one here as competition.

Quote: I can't imagine the colour version being better than this, so I'll give my award to this one

John, thank you so much. That's made my day.
Thanks everyone, and a Happy Weekend to you.
Moira

Quote: Your real world is in black and white?

All my early memories are in mono. I think colour appeared on the scene some time in the 1960s. Mono is still the natural way to see for me. I see lines, shapes, spatial relationships.
It occurred to me recently that I cannot remember what colour car any of our neighbours drive.

Those eyes are begging you Moira. Bring back our allotments. I find I like the real world and the fantasy world. Maybe it's a left side/right side brain thing. I find this kind of hypnotizing. Good one.
