THE LONELY

This image is not sharp, I know, but then I thought well many of us do not see the homeless and poor – they hover in the periphery of our vision, physical and mental, and so if they are not clear we can ignore them.

THE IRISH CLUB, BRADFORD, NOW CLOSED

DSC_0535The club has obviously been closed for some time but this sign on the door is, I think, hysterical and unfortunately a bit stereotypical of how we joke about our Irish brethren.  One wonders if they could have found the doorbell would the club have stayed open?

DON’T YOU SEE ME?

DON'T YOU SEE ME?

The gentleman in the straw hat was trying to make conversation with anyone who wouid listen to him. Unfortunately he was viewed with suspicion although nothing he said gave any indication that he was someone to be afraid of. It was because he was a little ‘different’ although aren’t we all? I find our attitude to those in society who have an outlook that does not match our own very upsetting.
