A lovely abstract study of texture and colour Bill.

I know Colman's Mustard is strong stuff - especially the 'English' version which tends to dissolve the lining of your nose (this from a chile freak, by the way, who uses an asbestos fork to eat his home-made curries.....) - but this is ridiculous. A fine shot, William, and, funnily enough, I knew it was a sign for Colman's before I even read your short intro. Jings, am I that old? Wink

Bob - since you are no older than me you might remember the series of poster ads whose wording ran more or less: "C'mon Colmans, light my fire". There was one in particular that I had to ignore studiously on my drive into work in Newcastle for fear of leaving the road . . . . I was but young . . .

Is it because they lack space or, as the title indicates, because of a queer insistence that they put one sign on top of another, Bill? More reasonably, it might be a matter of style. Anyway, I love it! The torn appearance, the wear, the colours and the rust work so well in this excellent frame.

Rustard is always the best Bill.


adds that special zing.


Well spotted Bill, a bit of everything in this one, it made me look and think what it was saying before I read your intro, nice one.

A good quality English mustard here Bill.
Far better than the weak stuff these French and Germans make !!
And a good quality image too.
(Now where's my German sausage and French baquette !!)

I know the sign well Bill. If you have the full version you will see Elvis on it.
A super image and which shows that sometimes the part is better than the whole.

I love the layers of signs -- taking us into the past as we peel off top layers.
