Girl wearing a scarf

By TrevBatWCC    
Whilst wandering round Clarence Dock, one of our Camera Club members spotted this and commented "There's a picture of a girl wearing a scarf". I couldn't see anything, except a splodge of some graffiti sprayed onto this grey metal door! On closer inspection, it was clearer as to what it was. I think the whole lot of us photographed it, and here's my effort. It's got the added bonus of being nicely framed in some rust too! Smile
Probably won't be on the site for a couple days, as I've my hospital appointment this afternoon for my MRI scan to make sure the brain's still functioning. If that ain't bad enough, as part of bowel cancer screening, I've also got an appointment tomorrow for a colonoscopy, so got to starve for a whole 24 hours beforehand...the actual test sounds horrendous! Sad

This is so well presented Trev, and what a great find. I do like good wall art, and this is really good. And with added rust - what more could you ask!

Well spotted opportunity, Trev, and captured in fine detail.
All the best with your contact with the NHS today and tomorrow, and the latter performance is not as bad as you might expect (said from personal experience).

Well spotted (sorry, couldn't resist) and captured. Don't worry Trev, Garrath survived the colonoscopy thing and he survived bowel cancer too. I'm not 100% convinced that they will find a brain though!

Hope all goes well. It's always reassuring when they can at least confirm that one is still alive.

Nicely seen even if not spotted by you. Wink Smile

Don't worry about the colonoscopy as the stuff that they give you to drink first is worse than the colonoscopy. Sad Tongue Wink

Good luck anyway.

Almost looks like a stencil, Trev. Reminded me of the archetypical black and white head scarf worn by Yasser Arafat.

Hope the NHS don't get the tests mixed up tomorrow! They should know the difference between the brain and.....Wink

Great shot Trev, some talented grafitti artists our there.
Hope all goes well at the MRI. The colonoscopy test is not as horrific as it sounds. Says she who has just had a verbal kick up the butt from the Dr for binning my test strips. She says, and I quote 'Next time I see you, I will ask if you got another test and sent it off - even if we are in the middle of Lidl's'! Lucky she used to be a drinking pal of mine and a junior dr - many moons ago. Moira
