Shadows and other titbits

Just a few titbits from the week and a contribution th Shadow Shot Sunday.

My first few pics were taken at the Malpas Yesterday Rally in Cheshire - shadows being the priority and in evidence and what a wonderful array of exhibits - and look at the shadows they cast.

Vintage motorcycles not quite your Harley but in their day someone's dream and even now getting more than a glance.

What about this bus - who-ooo! away to the seaside on a mad excursion ! a lot of these vehicles do get taken out on runs and I believe great fun is had by all !

Now what about ths for an invention - an old lorry cyclinder - converted to burn kindling - and an improvised chimney boils this lovely old brass kettle - what a cuppa eh!

Romany caravans and their horses were dotted around the show ground - colourful and charismatic - this is one of many.

What about this Romany dog - I fell in love !

Moving on - look at this monster heaving away in the allotment - - - already for Halloween - twice the size of his brothers and sisters -surely it will take pride of place on the night !


  1. I really want that Romany caravan.

    Thanks for visiting, Jane; Do you do your job at R.S.H.? I was there this week as a patient.

  6. I very much like the Romany caravan. I posted one made here in Canada on September 12:

    The one I posted is not nearly as fancy on the outside as the one on your blog, but the inside is in red and gold. :)
