A Class Act, Draped In Pistachio. Bath Abbey Churchyard, Bath.

Is it a public holiday in your neck of the woods? Well it is here on Monday so it's a 3 day weekend and I started by "wallowing" in bed this morning, you know that state of mind which is neither her or there, where thoughts and dreams mingle, pass over and through. Really rather nice...I may even do the same tomorrow. Nothing to productive today other than playing with cameras, struggling with over exposed Polaroids which I eventually got to grips with and chicken stock...well the making of. Oh and a toe poke of a lottery ticket, well you've got to be "In it to win it" as they say.

Today's image was taken a few weeks ago in Bath in one of my post work wanders. Not really part of the "old people shot from the hip" series as I was rather more blatant with this one. I spotted her wandering through the Abbey Churchyard dressed from head to toe in what I call Pistachio, no emails about it please it's as near as damn it but it can be green as well if it pleases you! Then I spotted she had an ice cream cone in the same shade. I couldn't see any practical way of taking her photo secretly so thought stuff it I'll have to just crouch down in front of her and take it....and deal with her displeasure afterwards. The beauty of doing this in a major tourist city is that the people you are shooting never think it is them.....they always assume they happened to be in the way. So I crouched, shot and I swear she would have walked right over me for the interest she had. Good to do as it gave me the confidence to do it again. For you map type people out there here is the usual aerial view of the area.

Here's all that I have to give
I'll admit it's not a lot,
but it's all that I've got
to hang myself with
in hopes that you'll take notice of me
I've been waiting
so long
up in these trees
trying to hang myself with
thoughts of you
thoughts of me
I've been wishing so long
why can't you see?
