escape, colours, socks

Posted by Picasa A fire escape at the rear of the abandoned cinema in the centre of Tunbridge Wells. Like Marjo -Leena Raithe's disused shipyard, the cinema site offers the camera remarkable shapes, textures, colours and compositions, as nature takes on the iron-founders.

From our bedroom window there are two trees to watch close-to, a venerable tulip tree and, directly opposite, a lime. Though many leaves have fallen, quite a few remain, and these, just now, glitter in the morning sun a mixture of green and gold - a combination, which sums up October for me in this leafy corner of the town.

A pair of tidily discarded, green socks, in a shop doorway invite speculation as to their owner and the reason for their abandonment.
