If you viewed/commented yesterday, please take a moment to read the notes at the end of this description.
When I was a-teaching, PSE (Personal and Social Education) was just one of the names given to what my mother would have called Common Sense. It appears to have a different meaning in Alnwick (an up-to-date version of "Boot Boys Rool", maybe?) Here it defaces an attractive but uncared-for stone wall, the side of an imposing, derelict building.
Two views today - of course, it was the door that attracted my attention; tomorrow we move in closer

Notes from yesterday
Thanks for the wonderful comments on yesterday's impromptu portrait of Mrswoolybill and the inevitable comparisons with "Herself in 1974". I like the pose in both old and new portraits. Purely photographically the 1974 version is better, and one day I'll try to emulate it with the D300. The object for me was to see what could be achieved with a modern ultra-compact working in an extremely restricted space - we faced each other across a café table, and neither Moira nor I could move more than 30 cm/ 1foot backwards without tipping up somebody else's table. Given the circumstances I was more than pleased with the result.
Apologies for yet another click-and-run session yesterday afternoon - another musical engagement intervened. It does help to fund the photography, though!
