Various intresting pictures

Oxygen is importint as demonstrated in this little exhibit at Eden. It is connected to the Plant Machine you can see in a previous set of Eden pictures. When they do not get oxygen they all collapse. It is a valuable lesson there for any of us that did not realise you need oxygen to breathe.

A sinister old man I saw out of my window. I expect he is quite harmless really, but I just liked something about him. There is an eerie quality to the shot as well being taken through a double glazed window, and the harsh light lends an air of criminality.

On Caradon Hill in Cornwall, a cheerful rainbow over Minions and the old abandoned mine workings. It was fierce weather up there as detailed in Storm on Caradon. As David Brent pointed out, “‘If you want the rainbow, you’ve got to put up with the rain.’ You know who said that? Dolly Parton. And people say she’s just a big pair of tits.”

Jane and I were at Par Beach (more pictures to come) and there were some people messing around with a quad bike, so I intrusively took photos of them.

A kissing couple at Mevagissey harbour. I suppose it is a bit romantic but I like it when people hold hands and kiss in public. The only problem is I would like to take more photos of them, except in case they do not like it and beat me up. I am quite sensitive to being beaten up. You may call me a la-di-da Morrissey type, but I do not like it.

Mevagissey, part 2

Mevagissey is a small and charming fishing village in Cornwall which has one of the best pasty shops for miles around. That’s right I am shamelessly promoting the pasty shop where I had a delicious pasty, hopefully the message will get through and I will get a complimentary van load of free pasties next time I go to visit.

Ironically the traditional hand made pasty shop was empty of custom, while everyone queued for the fish and chip shop across the street. It is sad really as why would you go to Cornwall and have fish and chips? You might as well go to a top restaurant and order Mini Kievs.

Keep the harbour tidy! This is my friend Jane which is inexplicably ignoring the signs for the charming sounding Elizabeth’s Tea Rooms (note apostrophe). I wanted to go in and order cake, and fine wine, but Jane did not let me.

I still find this picture a bit disturbing. I have figured out what it means, but it reminds me of my favourite photographer David Shrigley in a way. Either that or someone is having a laugh.

This brings me out in giggles. “You do know I’m an evil hypnotist?”

And so we leave picture-skew Mevagissey, until the next time ekcetera. There is a terrifying garden of piskies that I have not shown you, and Britain’s most disquieting public toilets. Till then take care of yourselves, and each other.

Mevagissey, Cornwall

This is the charming town of Mevagissey in Cornwall, which is not far from where I live, and has a selection of delicious pasties.
