A Silly Sunday upload that really needs no explanation. Identities have been blurred to protect not only the innocent, but myself. I cannot afford to be sued!
Taken at the Black Country Living Museum last Wednesday in the company of some UK ePz dignitaries, 2 x woolybills, John 'The Dude' Dudler, Keith the Lord of Darkness and Dave, aka mistere, to whom I shall be eternally grateful for his assistance in holding my spare lens while this image was obtained.
The exif reflects that this was a grab shot before the subjects moved to graze elsewhere...Smile

Ah yes, I remember this. You have been spotted, it would appear; no worries, they would never have caught you!

P.S.: Steady, prolonged rain here, all night. Weren't we the lucky ones?!!!

It appears so, but that was not the case. She was indicating to my right and engaged in animated conversation with her friend.

It was more a case of Dave being taken unawares by my, "'Ere, hold this a mo, mate" and acting instinctively before he had the time to realise the assistance he had given.Smile

The left side of that seat seems to be slowly sinking into the ground.

I think some recognition should be given to the person who
put the sign next to the bench or, put the bench by the sign.
Either way, a very mischievous evil genius.
Have a very silly Sunday Malc. SmileSmile

I had a look at the exif data, as instructed.
Couldn't see the 'Grab Shot' heading. I had a good look
at my camera as well, there is't a mode for it there either.
Fuji could be onto a winner hereWinkSmile

Dave is such a lovely person to be around, isn't he, Malc? So gently humorous, and so polite? A man who - when you ask him to hold a lens - may well clean the front element and straighten the lens hood.

Wicked, wicked picture...

Weighted down?
[Weighted down is usually found in a more literal context of adding ballast, as in, "The balloon was weighted down so it wouldn't fly away". Weighed down is appropriate for a more figurative context of adding something unnecessary or undesirable. .............................. not sure if they were unnecessary or undesirable, so I've gone for weighted down!!]
