Signs of the Times 1: Yorkshire Past


Just back from two lovely weeks in the UK. (Lovely apart from the weather which, even by the standards of my childhood, was particularly wet and windy. Fortunately I went not for the weather but to see family and friends, who were all dry and warm.) I decided to take a break from posting to the web site for the duration and just enjoy the trip. I also decided to take my camera around with me and, though I took the occasional holiday snapshot and family portrait, mostly focus in on specific images and signs, hoping to tell something of a story in the process. To do so, I probably need to break them up into separate post(card)s. This is the first: though there are no revelations in any of them, I feel like quite the American tourist these days when I get to see Britain’s history up close and personal again, especially after a two-year absence. Enjoy.

    Welcome back Tony.

    I always have Gang of Four’s “At Home He Feels Like A Tourist” going around my head in these situations.

    They say “Home is Where the Heart is”- which also says to me that the heart can be in many places.

    Penny for the Guy?

    Cheers
    Tom
