Tea in a Coffee Shop
Sat in local coffee shop drinking tea, as one does in a coffee shop, anyway I sit near the window because the light is fabulous and often times something to see.. ..and see something indeed I did, through the thick glass of the cafe window across the pavement and through another window I saw…
Just a small milk bottle on table in pub..it caught my eye, how couldn’t it ?

The man in black
Just another day in Blackpool..love his Johnny Cash style and the look he’s giving me…he really is the main character in this image but I wonder if he was on his own or on a different street would the image still be as good?
