Well the Greek kind of went OK...my fears didn't come to anything...she was a kind teacher and seemed to tolerate my lack of work and put a positive slant on it...bless her.
So, what do I have to tell you? Following last weeks lesson the man flu I was expecting never really materialised but I have a cold sore on my lip, you know the very fleshy part so I know it will split at some stage and bleed a lot! I get them from time to time...if you don't get them quick they are a bitch to get rid of! I keep biting this one. My knee also seems to have gone again......not complaints, just a bit of filler. I seem to be crumbling...slowly. Any suggestions to slow this down gratefully received. As you can see I have little to share so I'll shut up. One of these days I'll just post a photo with none of the associated crap I give you.

Today's photo is taken in the local market town of Bradford On Avon. The first photo posted here with my Polaroid 600SE. I have had it a while and shot a few films through it. It is a beast to carry for sure...almost as if I am carrying all my damn cameras in one hand. Still you have complete control and so no reason to take badly exposed photos. This was taken in the Roman Catholic Church of St. Thomas More, the church was founded in 1955 in the former town hall which was built in 1855. I just had a mooch around for a decent aerial shot of the place but can't find one, which is just as well as the outside isn't that attractive! I hope you like...must use this more.

The whole place is dark
Every light on this side of the town
Suddenly it all went down
Now we’ll all be brothers of the fossil fire of the sun
Now we will all be sisters of the fossil blood of the moon
Someone must have set us up
Now they’ll be working in the cold grey rock, in the hot mill steam… in the concrete
In the sirens and the silences now all the great set up hearts - all at once start to beat
After tonight if you don’t want us to be a secret out of the past
I will resurrect it, I’ll have a good go at it
I’ll streak his blood across my beak and dust my feathers with his ashes
I can feel his ghost breathing down my back
I will try and know whatever I try, I will be gone but not forever
The real truth about it is no one gets it right
The real truth about it is we’re all supposed to try
There ain’t no end to the sands I’ve been trying to cross
The real truth about it is my kind of life’s no better off
If I’ve got the maps or if I’m lost
The real truth about it is there ain’t no end to the desert I’ll cross
I’ve really known that all along
Mama here comes midnight with the dead moon in its jaws
Must be the big star about to fall
Long dark blues
Will o the wisp
The big star is falling
Through the static and distance
A farewell transmission
