The Gallery: Week 81 – 11.11.11

The eleventh day of the eleventh month of the two thousand and eleventh year, at eleven o’clock in the morning. The ninety-third anniversary of the armistice at the end of World War One. Once again, an anniversary acknowledged in a simple but moving and dignified way in the centre of Derby. The well-known verse of Binyon’s poem ‘For The Fallen’ was quoted aloud. (They shall grow not old…)

 One man and one woman from the services honour the fallen…

 …as the bugle sounds, and we remember the cost of our freedom.

Mystery Picture – Week 4

OK, then. The correct answer for week 3 is, of course, a lightning conductor down the side of a church wall. Well done to Phil (@inxta) who guessed correctly. Here is the (ornate) top end of it :
And here is the new picture below. As before, please leave your guess as a reply, and feel free to pass the word around so that we get some more guesses. Thank you again for viewing.

The Gallery: Week 80 – T is for…

Well, T is for Tara who gives us the prompts.  But you know that already.  Then again, T is for trees.  This was the subject for a photo gallery a while back, before this blog began, so I’m going to seize the opportunity now.  Any excuse for a tree picture!


And then again, T is for traction engines.  At a steam rally I visited recently, they came in various styles, and even different sizes altogether!
