It's raining then ... hallelujah

By Ericsamson
A bit of a Banksy thing going on spotted on a beach hut at Broadsands midway between Paignton and Brixham. Very nicely done too; seemed a shame not to snap it with the trusty old mobile before treating myself to a Magnum. (That's the ice cream ... not the big hand gun thing ... I wasn't feeling that lucky punks 🥴 😳 😱 )

Tweaked in Affinity, given a bit of a straighten* with the perspective tool and cropped.

Many thanks for the very kind responses to yesterday's gratuitous bit of nonsense; you've all been very kind. 🥲

All the best for what remains of the bank holiday and the week ahead. G 🙂

*I was too lazy/dimwitted to crouch down. It's a wonder I can walk and breath at the same time. 🥴🥴🥴

I would imagine the padlock is to deter people from stealing the door now it has that artwork on it!
Great find Graham.

In the days of film we had to get in the correct position to avoid sloping/converging/diverging verticals - thank goodness we have Photoshop to make life easier! It's one of my most used tools... 😃 A great find here, Graham, well framed and captured 😃👍

It seems to be quite a thing these days for Banksy art work to be appearing all over the countryside, but mostly fakes. However, they are usually an invitation for graffiti artists to overspray them. Jealousy? Well spotted, Graham, and processed.

A delightful door and ‘Dolly with a Brolly’ artwork! Don’t know why I called her Dolly - just rhymed with brolly, I suppose!!
A fine capture, Graham!

Damn it! Just as I was going to have a parade it starts to phiss down! Typical.

My health goals are to be able to do up my shoe-laces and breath at the same time...

Walking and breathing combined is multi tasking and therefore a Ladies thing. Ask Matron for lessons as she hoovers, irons, knits, concocts the amazing Medication whilst doing the crossword, shakes the wood chips from the old trouser turn ups on the white flannels ( ignore the sand), all at the same time as feeding and watering both the good Sir G and the Unicorns.
Meanwhile as I was busy pecking at the keyboard thing I have completely forgotten where I was going with this, who I am, and why I have a pencil up each nostril. Blush

Jeeves, Jeeves where have you gone?

Bertie, or maybe Doris,'s going to be one of those days!Grin
