Under Framwellgate Bridge

By mrswoolybill
Photobombed by a stray leg. This is what happens when two photographers are eyeing up the same subject.
This one stayed in colour because of the coordinated blues.
The version was taken nearby, it has more disembodied legs.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Mary Poppins lamented, perhaps, and very good wording on the version Moira 👌

I love all the colours in this. They show the age, and the weathering, of the stonework. I can take and/or leave the shapely leg, the colour of which gives no clue to its age. Smile

I wonder how long it was before someone 'rehomed' that brolly.

Left leg in, left leg out...

Well taken and all those weathered colours, no wonder you didn't go mono!

Great captures, I totally agree with the narrative on the poster in the version.

A brolly with a periscope sticking out of the top, perfect for when you have to have the brolly as low as possible over you...

It's that brolly again! ☔ I remember it appearing in Bill's uploads. Bloomin' photographers always see to get in the way... 😬👍🏻

This has the surreal feel of a Monty Python Circus sketch about it, with John Cleese goose-stepping round the corner! Good presentation, Moira, making the most of what you photographed.

Thanks folks, and thanks to Sylvia for the UA.
I avoided posting the version as a main upload because I suspected that political discussion would take over...

Thanks everyone.
The umbrella was as found, and we left it there. It had blown inside out, it was possibly salvageable but judging by the smell these steps serve as Durham's back-up urinal at night. I don't think I would want to actually touch anything there...
