Hire me from £35

This wheelie-bin for hire advertisement caught my eye (from £35 a day), the bin perched atop a small Ford Ka van, The cones also got my attention, as did the sign afixed to the lamppost which, on first glance, I thought was advertising a flypast but which, upon closer inspection, is actually advertising an RAF Association meeting. There were teas, coffee, and cake involved, which sounds nice. Note also, the “God save the king” attribution at the bottom, this photograph having been taken the day before the funeral of Queen Elizabeth.

It’s a photograph of what might be considered a mundane scene, but these things often catch my eye. I find them interesting and I think it’s valuable to record such things, probably moreso than pretty landscapes.
