Bright Spring iPhone Photos
The return of bright spring sunshine means the return of shadows! Woo hoo! They always make pictures a lot more interesting.
Here's some more of what's landed on my iPhone over the past couple of weeks:
Another Olga-tied-to-a-tree photo. I really don't even need to use the leash. If I told her to stand there, she would -- unless she saw a cat.
"Self-Portrait with Demolished Interior" -- a gutted shop on the high street that used to be a shoe repair place. It's a weird little building practically suspended over the railroad tracks. I took this through a front window.
My gin-of-the-month club sent a mixer that for once didn't make a pink drink. It was sort of disconcertingly gold, though. It tasted good but I still prefer a clear gin & tonic!
Interesting shadows cast by a frame that holds an old oak leaf.
More Covid conspiracy talk, from a sticker on an Abbey Road traffic sign.
And this person seems...what? Skeptical of continued public health measures after we've been vaccinated, I guess?
Some remarkable (and yes, real) lilies left on a 1920s-era grave at the cemetery. Every once in a while flowers appear on older graves like this one -- sometimes much older -- and it's interesting to think of someone turning up to pay respects to their ancestors.
And finally, a giant rubbish bin on a truck I saw on my walk home yesterday, thanking the NHS superheroes and other essential workers.
