If you viewed/commented yesterday, please take a moment to read the notes at the end of this description.

When I was a-teaching, PSE (Personal and Social Education) was just one of the names given to what my mother would have called Common Sense. It appears to have a different meaning in Alnwick (an up-to-date version of "Boot Boys Rool", maybe?) Here it defaces an attractive but uncared-for stone wall, the side of an imposing, derelict building.

Two views today - of course, it was the door that attracted my attention; tomorrow we move in closer Smile

Version 1: 22mm, 1/200th sec. @ f5;
Version 2: 27mm, 1/200th sec. @ f5; both ISO 200

Notes from yesterday

Thanks for the wonderful comments on yesterday's impromptu portrait of Mrswoolybill and the inevitable comparisons with "Herself in 1974". I like the pose in both old and new portraits. Purely photographically the 1974 version is better, and one day I'll try to emulate it with the D300. The object for me was to see what could be achieved with a modern ultra-compact working in an extremely restricted space - we faced each other across a café table, and neither Moira nor I could move more than 30 cm/ 1foot backwards without tipping up somebody else's table. Given the circumstances I was more than pleased with the result.
Apologies for yet another click-and-run session yesterday afternoon - another musical engagement intervened. It does help to fund the photography, though!

Just been looking at Moira's door from yesterday and now here's similar subject with a very different yet equally interesting presentation.
I wonder who decided to paint the door mauve. It's quite unusual and doesn't sit right somehow against the attractive stone of the wall. The graffiti may be an eyesore but it makes a marvellous photography subject. Well taken.

I think I remember PSE, which was just one of the names it went under - something about condoms and cucumbers was it?
Superb bit of photojournalism Bill.

Apart from the grafitti, which is attractive in a weird sense, I love all the wonderful detail you have captured in the wall.
Love the blue of the door & the tiny letter-box.

As well as the usual interest of graffiti and flakey paint,it is unusual as to how narrow the door is.All the ''furniture'' has been removed too.Handle,lock and letter box.Sounds like I will get a closer inspection tomorrow.Nice ones Bill.
