Strike a light!

Without thinking about it, I assumed this tower was the historic Dimmeys clock tower and when the development is built behind the now closed Dimmeys, we would no longer see the tower. Something made me pick up the binoculars and take a proper look and of course it is not the the Dimmeys clock but the match makers Bryant and May clock. Redhead matches are no longer made at the factory, instead imported from Sweden.

There was nothing wrong with the colour in this shot. It was interesting afternoon light.

  2. It was that unusual thing called the SUN.
    Been a bit scarce of late, might take us a good while to get used to seeing such brightness again :P

  4. And Cazzie, today was even better. I can't recall such a perfect day.

    And soon the sun will be burning bright and I will be complaining about the heat.

    Golden what Fen? Oh, light. Yes golden wasn't it.

  6. Actually Scott, I seldom use them. They can be quite obvious.
