. . . having Colman's Mustard.
From Beamish Museum.
A sign grave yard, well seen Bill.
A lovely abstract study of texture and colour Bill.
I know Colman's Mustard is strong stuff - especially the 'English' version which tends to dissolve the lining of your nose (this from a chile freak, by the way, who uses an asbestos fork to eat his home-made curries.....) - but this is ridiculous. A fine shot, William, and, funnily enough, I knew it was a sign for Colman's before I even read your short intro. Jings, am I that old?
Bob - since you are no older than me you might remember the series of poster ads whose wording ran more or less: "C'mon Colmans, light my fire". There was one in particular that I had to ignore studiously on my drive into work in Newcastle for fear of leaving the road . . . . I was but young . . .
Is it because they lack space or, as the title indicates, because of a queer insistence that they put one sign on top of another, Bill? More reasonably, it might be a matter of style. Anyway, I love it! The torn appearance, the wear, the colours and the rust work so well in this excellent frame.
My Dad would have nothing else..t was my job to mix it for Sunday roast
"A sign of the times Bill, a sign of the times?".
Rustard is always the best Bill.
adds that special zing.
Well spotted Bill, a bit of everything in this one, it made me look and think what it was saying before I read your intro, nice one.
These old sign rust and decay so beautifully.
The sigh has obviously seen better times but it retains a real character. I love work like this bill.
A good quality English mustard here Bill.
Far better than the weak stuff these French and Germans make !!
And a good quality image too.
(Now where's my German sausage and French baquette !!)
Love the colour combination and the textures here Bill!
My dad used love mustard, and buy this in powder form and mix it himself...it was far too hot for me! A great capture of this decaying sign, Bill
I know the sign well Bill. If you have the full version you will see Elvis on it.
A super image and which shows that sometimes the part is better than the whole.
You can't beat English Mustard clears the nasal passages! clears your ears and eyes all in one go, love it had some on my sausage sandwich lunch time, wonder if it will melt my crowns lol. Great selection of rust and stuff, think you got the lot here like it regards Leon.
Good old Norfolk mustard.
I like this...!
What a great find Bill, and so well composed. A quality shot.
Love the rusty edges and colourful old enamel signs Bill, great image, Peter
Seems i joined the club then Bill, thanks the nice comment..
Where there's rot there's grot..
It's still recognisable Bill despite all the wear and tear.
I love the layers of signs -- taking us into the past as we peel off top layers.
A superb study of texture and colours
