Eventually We Ran Out Of Things To Say! Grand Parade, Bath, Somerset.

Well I was supposed to post last night, not that there are any hard and fast rules I know but I intended to but got distracted, then got tired then couldn't be bothered. Then I was disappointed with myself...ah well!
Well the trip to London on Saturday was great....well other than we were travelling there at the same time as all the people who were attending the FA Cup final! Lets just say the traffic was a little slow towards the end of the trip. We were also using a loan car as ours is being repaired....it is new but little more than a lawn mower with an engine. At 70 MPH you need the radio so bloody loud to fight the road noise it's untrue. The birthday party itself though was great fun even though the weather kept us indoors. Well, that's where the wine and food was so I guess I was in the right place. The drive back in the early hours was quiet enough with me fighting my closing eyelids.
Sunday was spent doing stuff on the new website which I hope will be live pretty soon...nothing very fancy but I needed some way of presenting the photos more effectively than the blog does. With the blog anything older than about 5 days is like old newspaper so I thought some galleries where photos can be viewed in collections might be nice. I haven't done it myself.....I really don't have the ability for that.

Today's image is from a wander around Bath a few weeks ago with the Holga dangling from the hip! I was drawn to this couple as they were having a picnic pretty much on a bus stop! They had obviously taken the trouble to come to this world heritage city with it's parks and wonderful architecture. So many pretty and quiet places they could have had a bite to eat and open the flask of tea but no, they chose a damn bus stop on one of the busiest streets in Bath! So the challenge was to see just how close I could stand and take a photo...if I had been them I would have been poking me with a fork and telling me to bugger off. I almost invited myself for a cuppa.
So if you have an interest where they were sat I will try and pin point the bench where they were sitting. Don't be fooled by the pretty scene....very busy with buses so a good dose of Carbon Monoxide was probably had. Still they're getting on a bit and it may give them a nice healthy glow!

Can we get away this weekend?
Take me to Broadway.
Let's go shopping baby then we'll go to a café.
Let's go on the subway.
Take me to your hood.
I never been to Brooklyn and I'd like to see what's good.
Dressed in all your fancy clothes.
Sneaker's looking fresh to death I'm lovin' those Shell Toes.
Walkin' that walk.
Talk that slick talk.
I'm likin' this American Boy.
American Boy.

Take me on a trip, I'd like to go some day.
Take me to New York, I'd love to see LA.
I really want to come kick it with you.
You'll be my American Boy.
