New Friends.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for kindly voting and commenting on my 'Victim' image. To fully understand the implications of what the young lady in the picture is doing, you have to live in an area such as the Medway Towns, just fifty miles from Dover (Chanel Tunnel) and thirty miles from London. This particular part of the South East has always had its undesirables, but the problem has increased ten fold, if not more, in the past two or three years. Julie finds it intimidating to go into town these days and wont go without me. She then moans because I'm walking along swinging my camera around which anyone could swipe so I guess I'm as bad as anyone for putting temptation in the way. However, there seems little interest in stealing camera's as they are too troublesome to profit from, where as, Money and Phones are the prime targets. I could go on... But wont.Smile

So, today's image. A grab shot from Leeds Castle mote, hope you like it and have a good day and stay safe.

All the best to all,

Good to see innocent pleasure.
Sorry to hear that life in Kent isn't as pleasant as it once was.
I'm due a visit down there soon!

It's a sad world and getting sadder. A glimpse of innocent pleasure that you captured helps to make it bearable.Smile
