Yellow, blue, red…

Yellow flower, behind Fareham Shopping Centre this morning…


Blue ticket machines, Portsmouth Harbour this evening…


Railway sidings, Portsmouth Harbour station this evening…

Autumn leaves and berries…

A frock in a shop window, a roadside flower…and a truly excellent evening gig by the Manfreds…

Was tempted to upload another Halloween shop window photo…but this one appealed to me more…


A rain-spattered flower, in Southampton Road. Titchfield at lunchtime today…


Spent the best part of the evening watching the first gig of The Manfreds’ 50th Anniversary Tour at the Kings Theatre, Albert Road, Southsea, and it was easily the best gig I’ve seen in quite a while, with Paul Jones, Mike d’Abo, Tom McGuinness, Mike Hugg and others. It finished with dancing in the aisles and standing ovations…a great evening’s entertainment :).

Oсень наступает…

A red rose, a Fratton face, and another bee ;)

Red rose, in a garden in Segensworth Road, Titchfield.

More graffiti from Fratton Park…

A bumble-bee in Segensworth Road.

Eжевика…and Albert Road at nightfall.

If you ever wondered where ‘yizhivika’ originated…here’s the answer, ежевика, Russian for ‘blackberries’ 😉

Towards the eastern end of Albert Road…The Bold Forester, and The Leopold pubs.

And at the western end of Albert Road, outside of the King’s Theatre.

More Titchfield flowers…and another attempt at bee photography ;)

Two London 2012 images…and one for my Mum ;)

Chen Guanming, aboard his tricycle, in Gerrard Street today, having cycled from Beijing to London…’to support Olympics…I hope my story can contribute to world peace and environment protection.’

Trafalgar Wenlock, at the southern end of the Charing Cross Road.

And last…but very far from least…today was my Mum’s 80th birthday, and this is one of her favourite flowers, an hibiscus, in her back garden.

Fareham miscellany…

Stone steps leading up to Fareham railway station…

…and on the left, at the top, this stencilled graffito.

Yet another attempt to get a pollen-seeking bee in focus ;).
