Planet Circus OMG!

Pasted on the windows of a betting shop in Cleethorpes are a bunch of posters for the circus that was scheduled to come to town a week or so after I visited. The light was great, so it gets to be today’s picture.

I’ve had a couple of days off work this weekend, giving me four days instead of the usual two. My outstanding luck meant that this was as a sequence of winter storms hit the country and I was stuck indoors for most of the time.

Today however, despite it still being quite windy, the weather was bright so I took myself out for a few hours to get some photography done. I visited the picturesque village of Wentworth which is about half an hour’s drive. I’ve not shot my GW690 for a while, so decided to let it see some light and ran three rolls through it during the trip. It’ll be a week or two before they start appearing here as I’m currently back in the back in terms of a backlog of other new photos to post.

It’s not that often that I cee circuses, so when I drove past this one in a field beside the road I took the first opportunity I could to turn the car around and go back and grab a couple of pictures.

Wot? No pictures?

As I type this Flickr is still undergoing its site maintenance involving the moving of everyone’s accounts, pictures etc. (billions of photos and videos, and over 100 million accounts!) across to a new hosting platform. I think it was scheduled to take 12 hours, but like many IT projects, is taking a little while longer than originally planned. As such I can’t get at my photos to add them in the normal way so, instead, here’s one I’ve uploaded directly.

Note: This isn’t meant to be a metaphor for Flickr’s account migration project. 🙂FIM - Planet Circus
