Not Just Happy Mondays

By cooky
Taken a while ago in Sowerby Bridge, people say it is less salubrious than Hebden Bridge but I love its gritty West Yorks atmosphere.

Having a wander and taking some street shots when from above, 'What you up to?' was shouted down.

I think the Canon was a give away really but they were lovely and silly daft and I said I'd take their photo.

Lad in the foreground was a little like Bez from Happy Mondays and we had a lovely Shaun in the background!

Hope they are all still good...

Take care.

I have no idea who the characters are or the programme you refer to, but the lad in front certainly does look like a cheeky one, a bit of a lad.

They are too happy to be in isolation - although the bottle of gin my daughter delivered yesterday definitely lighten my mood.
Nothing wrong with yorkshire folk....GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Certainly something i'd have never thought off taking.. well done

Thank you all for your time in commenting on my happy gang! They had definitely had some help in becoming that happy but were generous with their smiles!

Malc, where have you been? Happy Mondays, 80s Salford Indie Band, front man Shaun Ryder and his brother Paul was in the band and the wonderful dancing Bez - Mark Berry! Shaun then went on to form Black Grape. You have to Google if you wish to retain your street cred! I have a really eclectic taste in music as well as photography! WinkWink I now have an image of you practising a 'Bez' dance! Wink

Dora, glad your Gin supply has got through! WinkWink

Well, despite me liking all musical genres, apart from C&W and opera, I have to 'fess up and say that these lads have passed me by...off to google them and have a listen to satisfy my curiosity...

I knew you'd be onto it! Do not take up the decadent pop group lifestyle - well just for a day! Step On!

The title and the image will now make sense Malc!

You've made me laugh! Smile

Maybe not as touristy as Hebden Bridge, but it's a nice walk around by the River Calder 👍 A fine candid here, Kath, they certainly look a happy bunch! Very nicely framed too, by the err...window frame! 😃

Thanks Ivor and Trev for your comments.

Trev, glad you see what we see in Sowerby, still retains some real Yorkshire grit and not as many 'on trend' yuppie types as Hebden!

They were so happy!!🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️😂 in fact if we had stood under the window much longer we'd have been happy too!
