… You walk into the room
With your pencil in your hand
You see somebody naked
And you say, “Who is that man?”
You try so hard
But you don’t understand
Just what you will say
When you get home
Because something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?
Nice sequence of photos…
Lo and behold…!
Many thanks J – as you will see, I am cheating on Blip, but what the heck 🙂
These could has just as easily been taken, in South Wales, it must be the working men’s/women’s pubs and clubs that seem to attract good basic Entertainment, really like the group, and the Black and White rendering.
Many thanks I think you are right – our friend Jackie/Jaktrax was first class. Not all the sets were my thing but that doesn’t make them bad. The main thing is everyone seemed to be really enjoying themselves.
Yes, wonderful portfolio!!
Many thanks, much appreciated.
Way-hey! Robin. I’ve missed you. These are great photos, and one my very favourite (of several) Dylan songs to boot. Hope all is well with you and Mrs Robin and the vehicle collection 🙂
Hi Tish – very good to hear from you. I really must make more of an effort on WordPress – I have been sucked into the world of Blip which, while encouraging photography, does nothing for my writing. I am still dragging my heels on the sequel to Golf in the Wild. I thought of you recently while reading Alan Garner’s, Where shall we run to – a delight, set in such familiar places.
Hope everything is good with you and yours. I am still wedded to the Lotus and three bikes – the same Triumph, a Ducati which will be upgraded soon and a BMW which has replaced the Yamaha. I am a tad too materialistic with these machines. I do love ’em but, nothing like as much as Mrs Robin.
All the best, R x
We are fine too. Good to hear from you, you 3-bike man. And I was thinking about Alan Garner, so many thanks for alerting me to the memoir.
Hi Tish – if you email me your home address (firstname.lastname@example.org), I will gladly put my copy of Alan Garner’s memoir in the post. I am not as materialistic about books as i used to be – running out of space. Best rgds, R
Beautifully staged, Robin 🙂 🙂
Hi Jo, thanks and lovely to hear from you. As I said in the above to Tish, I really need to make more of an effort on WordPress. Here’s a question for you which I am hoping is a quick easy answer. We are thinking of escaping to Portugal for a few weeks in November. We would catch the ferry and drive from Santander – where would you recommend that is quiet, affordable and pretty and not too long a drive?
All the best, R x
The Douro area is beautiful as the vines change in Autumn, Robin. We stayed right on the river banks at a small place in Peso da Regua. I would love a return visit and have Amarante in mind. Have a look and see what you think? 🙂 🙂 Otherwise there are places further north that I’ve never visited. You could try Julie Dawn Fox’s blog for inspiration, but beware of all the adverts. It’s her living.
Many thanks for this Jo, very useful – I will take a look.
Such a rich, inviting ambiance in these images. I’m not one for going out, but I could while away a few hours in this comfy place.
There is a long and sad story behind our reason for being there – I will share should we ever meet. Hope the rest of your year goes well.
