Delight: Slides

Another one of our days out was to Sundown Adventureland.

Which bills itself as ‘the theme park for the under 10’s’. Our under 10’s loved it. But not just the under 10’s. I could tell that my Dad was itching to have a go on this slide. “Go on. Go on…no one’s looking.”

I’d already had a go. You should have heard it groaning and creaking as my great bulk hammered round those tight turns.

72 years young.

Deeply irresponsible and very silly no doubt.

But go back to that first photo and tell me that you don’t fancy a spin.

Delight: Autumn Leaves

No surprise for anyone who has read this blog before to discover that I quite like leaves. The blog is about, as TBH puts it: ‘leaves and stuff’. But even for those of us who don’t spend their time obsessively photographing leaves there are endless enjoyments to be had from autumn leaves: rucking them up with your feet or crunching through them, composting them, admiring their colours, and….throwing them around. This leaf shower – akin to one of Andy Goldsworthy’s ephemeral throws – caused great amusement, but then descended into a leaf fight.

It seems to me that the autumn colour in the UK is better this year than it has been for many years. I’m sure that there is an explanation for why. This photo, taken at the YSP on a very dull afternoon (as was the one above), doesn’t really demonstrate my point too well.
