What an awful week we are having.
I am sorry to say this is a quick upload and then I have got to run, I will however be back later to look at everyones uploads.
I apologise if I only leave votes and not comment. Normal service will hopefully be resumed shortly.

Just a quicky about this upload.
This was taken at Filey at the same time as my last upload.
I was on the cliff when this chap walked past me pushing his bike. Not to stereotype the fella, but I did think he looked out of place with a mountain bike and should actually be on a boat somewhere. Of course the bike could be the transport to his boat, or maybe it's a 007 bike and turns into a boat or submarine when required. That's one thing we will never know.

I hope you like it, thanks for any comments.

A sailor who has had to swap his boat for a bike? I wish there was more time in life to stand and stare.

A great composition, Andy, have to agree with you, he does look a bit 'sailorish', with that cap and white beard Grin Carol

Well-observed (both visually and in words), great choice of dof.
Makes us wonder what he's looking at.

Imagination is a wonderful thing but for sure, he makes for an interesting image.

I agree Andy with him looking slightly out of place.
Perhaps being the new Captain Birds Eye would seem more appropriate !!
Good shot.

Looks like bloomin' hard work to me. And now he's thinking about how he's going to get down again. Smile

Interesting candid portrait Andy. Maybe he was walking (bicycling?) his dog, or isn't that a dog in the background?
