I need to get to bed. MasterB has decided a turn around the garden is necessary, so I shall put up a wee post. Before I saw today’s photo challenge, I had taken myself out for a brief walk with my camera to give myself a break from the list of tasks I was steadily working through: Collect car ✓; get car washed ✓; clean silver ✓; renew library books ✓; buy stamps, potatoes, peas and tissues ✓; call X, Y and Z ✓; post letters ✓. You get the picture; scintillating stuff, the necessary if not inspiring day to day things that build up. I thought I might take some photos of blue things, just in the garden. MasterB has a new blue bell on his collar and that was a bit of a challenge to get him, the collar and the bell in the picture and in focus. He’s a lively lad, MasterB.
While I was outside a helicopter buzzed overhead; the police. I follow MPsinthesky on twitter. They post the most fabulous aerial shots of London. MPsonthewater give me a regular fix of Thames photos. I turned my camera skywards, and then trotted off to buy my peas and potatoes (see list above).
The road was closed to traffic. A felony had been committed, and the helicopter was helping in the search. When I came back out of the shop the road was open again, but there was police tape from the bus stop to the bank. I might have photographed it had I not seen this bike:
I particularly like the unicorn. I didn’t stay to see who got on the bike and rode away, but I’d put my 50p on them not being clad head to toe in lycra.
What story of Christmas revels does this battered bauble relate?
The whole effect seems quite out of keeping with the maleness of the crossbar. And it makes my own garlanded bike look positively conservative.
It must be time for his nibs to come in now, so sweet dreams, and fingers crossed for a sunny Saturday.
