Life, photos but not the universe

Dorchester Abbey and Bradfield May Fayre

Look here!  Didn’t the architect realise how obtrusive these long black doorhandles would be for a photographer?


I just had to get rid of them so now I’m afraid you can’t get into Dorchester Abbey any more.  And I suppose the two ladies who were arranging flowers are stuck inside too.

On the other hand I’m not responsible for the very small children climbing up Steve’s head at Bradfield May Fayre.

You might wonder about the big green bundle in the trees.  Also not mine – somebody threw it there.  There’s a bundle throwing competition going on overhead – man with pitchfork on one side, big bar on some poles the other.  Barney did quite respectably but his bundle fell short about four before the final winner.

Could have been something to do with the very small children just above his head?

  2. The doors are fantastic. I love old doors and beams! Amazing ironwork.

    • The hinges on this door seemed magnificently, almost organically, splendid rosie. I love these kinds of things too.

  3. At 11 stone, you are sized perfectly in my order of things. (And you would be at 20, 25 or 6, see, it don’t matter)
    Looks like a bright sunny day. Our trees aren’t that leafy yet. Things are slow this year. Weatherman says we’re two weeks behind. (I wonder what he means, two weeks behind what?)
    Having somew fun anyway, and that’s a good thing.

    • Oh you’re such a charmer ‘Man : )
      As to the season, we seem to be, somewhat giddily, a couple of weeks or more ahead. Things that we usually miss because we’re away at the end of May have burgeoned, bloomed and faded and there is green everywhere. So I suppose we must have stolen a bit of your Spring – but no doubt it’ll be given back later in the year!

  4. Sorry – haven’t been about for weeks, but we’re back home now.

    11 stone? Every one of them a gem.
