Sliding away

By mrswoolybill
Northumberland has its own take on the concepts of both horizontal and vertical.
Bill photographed the ear-muffs back in March. A month later they were still there so I thought I might as well bag them.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Rule of thumb: if it isn't lying on the ground, then it is upright, no matter what the angle...

My mind somehow came up with the thought of a slightly melted, double-ended back-scrub. Yes, I know, I am weird...

Very considerate of someone – silence can be deafening.

Sounds perfectly normal to me, and quite conservative (small c) compared with a lot of what we find when litter-picking...
Good morning ePHOTOnam, and thank you.

They still look to have weathered well! Maybe a scientific experiment?

Have a good day Moira.

How ever good the ear muff's they will never make you;
as deaf as a post, Moira.

Fine mono scene, Moira.
If they were headphones it could have been a listening post.

That would be a back and front-scrub, wouldn't it? Smile.
Nicely re-visited Moira.

They certainly look like they'd keep the ears warm! No need for them now though, as the weather's warmed up a bit 😃👍

Could be a bit like the e scooters in Newcastle, the latest must-do craze for drunk students at the weekend...

Useful information regarding ear muffs:

Level of Noise............Max Daily Exposure
85dB................................8 hrs
91dB................................2 hrs
97dB.................................0.5 hrs
140dB (Wife)......................1 minute

Maybe Bill will have a use for them !

Often wondered what a “listening post” looked like. I love coming across opportunities like this. Well seen and captured, Moira.
