Possibly a Brexit ‘stockpiling’ story?

Photography at home!

My guess is that this will having something to do with a story about how to plan for a hard Brexit. How on earth did we end up in such a crazy situation? It is being used in a government magazine both print and online.

So, if you happen to see it would you kindly let me know?

Another from Unst

This must be Britain’s most northerly wide sandy beach. Photographed in October but the weather was unusual for that time of year.  Who needs the Caribbean when you have Scotland?

I should not have taken this photo

18IDM2258sm

See the two men? They are just about to turn around and walk over to me with sufficient briskness that I know what is about to happen. The man in the blue is part of the security operation on this site and photography is not allowed. The road is on a bus route, thousands of people must drive past this spot every week, yet standing and taking a photo in a totally open overt way is a ‘security’ threat.

This is the headquarters building for UK and Ireland of Bayer plc. Perhaps they were being especially twitchy knowing that one of their products – Roundup – was about to be all over the news?

In UK so much apparently public space is now private that it comes as no real surprise to be challenged and told to put the camera away.

I tried to straighten the vertical lines on this picture – not sure if it has worked or does it look a bit strange?

That Unst bus shelter again

I posted about this colourful bus shelter back in May 2017. Unst, one of the Shetland Islands, is the most northerly part of the UK making this the most northerly bus shelter in the country.

This image was licenced for advertising use in Germany recently.  I’ve found a web link to the background story about why it is so decorated with so much pride by the local community. Locally it is called Bobby’s Bus Shelter and the story is here.

Shingle Street, Suffolk coast

It’s early Sunday morning and I am searching Google for ‘Shingle Street’ actually looking for information about water quality. But I come across a familiar looking image, check, and find that, yes, it is one of mine. That’s pleasing because I like it! I can’t see this sale reported as yet either on Alamy or Getty so it must still be in the pipeline. I don’t suppose that they have forgotten have they? It is two months ago.
