A week ago Danny Brannigan (danbrann), commenting on The Adam
, asked if I could make the Fox And Hounds as amusing. Well, I had already prepared the shot, though I'm unsure of his criteria for amusingness in this instance!
The said establishment is a very local pub that I'm never likely to see the inside of as it's visited by too many former students and is only a stone's throw from my old place of work. Not that I could throw a stone that far nor that accurately - but I don't get the practice that I attribute to certain of my former students...........
I appreciate originality in all walks of life; we still have pub signs that display this quality despite the onward march of corporate nonentity. You can see a few in my album; the images are sometimes slightly manipulated only in order to bring out the artistic qualities of the originals. Here I've had to make use of modificatory and reconstructive technology to disguise a messy background. Oh, well...
But the sign is bonny - and I like the inference that the fox is in control
