22/2/16 – this seems quite a good idea for people who don’t want to carry their lock everywhere – since getting a brompton 3 years ago I have forgotten how heavy locks can be to carry as bromptons can be easily taken inside instead of having to be locked up outside

22/2/16 – still with a cycling theme – this is on the “money centre” building in plymouth – the building itself has a good tiled finish

22/2/16 – i was amazed at the sheer number of pidgeons in this one spot

l1003132

24/2/16 – a trip to exeter – as i was walking through the guildhall shopping centre I could see someone holding some flyers with “raise eyebrows” printed on them – I liked the way the person was hidden with only the hand and flyer visible giving an element of mystery

24/2/16 – still in the guildhall shopping centre there was a shelf with a dummy head sat on it

l1003150

24/2/16 – still in exeter but now on cathedral green – i was trying to read all those “banned” activities – in fact it would not surprise me if photography was banned as some places such as shopping centres assume you are a terrorist if you take pictures on a camera rather than on a phone.   It reminded me of the sign at dismaland last year http://www.boliston.com/2015/11/04/dismaland-quantocks-and-cat/

l1003281

23/4/16 – it is unusual to see 3 photographers with film cameras and old style flashguns walking down the street – they thought my camera was also a film camera as it looks like one, but I explained it is digital, although it is now 10 years old

l1003283

25/4/16 – a window display of used corks in wells

l1003292

27/4/16 – a trip to lyme – beach hut number 37

l1003298

6/6/16 – a trip to bristol – rather than using the direct route from the station along victoria street i followed the path along the bank of the floating harbour with various colourfully decorated barges like this one – when it came to crossing temple way i decided this was not such a good route as the council had installed annoying railings to discourage people from crossing the road

l1003316

6/6/16 – the is some artwork in the entrance of a building called “the crescent” in canons way, bristol – there was a sign banning various activities but amazingly photography was not banned so i was safe to take these photos without being challenged

l1003326

6/6/16 – as i was walking back along anchor road i noticed this unusual entrance foyer with coloured tiling and spiral ramp – it is city of bristol college – college green centre

l1003455

11/6/16 – more birthday celebrations

l1003459

12/6/16 – these new flats next to the river tone look almost finished but I’m wondering why they did not evenly spread the balconies – perhaps they think people like to chat to their neighbour more easily?

l1003469

18/6/16 – this unicyclist had locked his unicycle to these railings but he made the mistake of locking only the wheel meaning his frame had been stolen – these pcso’s were saying that they would be on the lookout for any suspicious unicyclists in the area and hoped to recover the frame if possible
