Did I mention the rain? Did I mention it hadn't stopped? All day again today! All there was left to do was dash to work and dash home. That's it well other than the bottle of wine I was forced to polish off tonight...depression you understand....I mean so much rain is so sad
I am hoping that the first batch of my Crete photos will return from the lab tomorrow.....at the moment I seem to have a stack of stuff to process but very little that is exciting me I have to say. I think that I have been looking at it just a little too long. Also need to get out to a few new places here in the UK. I mean Bath is a beautiful place but it still bores the ass off of you eventually. I feel some winter seaside trips coming up soon.

Today's photo was taken on WTCD on the Kennet and Avon Canal in Bath is another of the wonderful Jasper Rose. Colour this time and a change of camera. I thought that you might like to see his face. He paints most days on my walk to and from work. I had never photographed him before but he is a charming man and was up for the toy camera treatment. He has been trying to give me one of his paintings for some time, we just never seem to get together, perhaps now I have something to give him it will be more likely to happen. He lectured in art history in Santa Cruz, California for many years. A charming man and I hope he won't mind me saying my friend.

I wish I had a Sylvia Plath
Busted tooth and a smile
And cigarette ashes in her drink
The kind that goes out and then sleeps for a week
The kind that goes out on her
To give me a reason, for well, I dunno

And maybe she'd take me to France
Or maybe to Spain and she'd ask me to dance
In a mansion on the top of a hill
She'd ash on the carpets
And slip me a pill
Then she'd get pretty loaded on gin
And maybe she'd give me a bath
How I wish I had a Sylvia Plath

And she and I would sleep on a boat
And swim in the sea without clothes
With rain falling fast on the sea
While she was swimming away, she'd be winking at me
Telling me it would all be okay
Out on the horizon and fading away
And I'd swim to the boat and I'd laugh
I gotta get me a Sylvia Plath

And maybe she'd take me to France
Or maybe to Spain and she'd ask me to dance
In a mansion on the top of a hill
She'd ash on the carpets
And slip me a pill
Then she'd get pretty loaded on gin
And maybe she'd give me a bath
How I wish I had a Sylvia Plath
I wish I had a Sylvia Plath
