Only the fence posts survive but it'll do for me! Gurnard's Head, Zennor, Cornwall. With montbretia. The South West Peninsula Coast Path.

A particularly Happy Fence Friday this week! Also…

Garden, Saint Day. I make no excuses for posting another photo from my mother's garden. In any case, I haven't posted as many as some people seem to think and none for a few months!!

HFF! Colombia metro station, Madrid

There is a logical explanation for this sculpture which was noted on my Pano upload of this shot but which was stolen by Google and I can't now remember what it is! Anyway I find the effect quite surreal!

HFF everyone! A rare Cornish fence.

Reskajeage, above Fishing Cove. The coast sweeps past Hell's Mouth (partly hidden), North cliffs and St Agnes' Head and on to Perranporth and Newquay. Taken not all that far from the previous shot with the honeysuckle (although two years later). The reason why the post is perfectly presented and everything else is slightly bokeh-ish is because I forgot to switch off the flash (although Ben - Fratton Parker kindly explains that it is 'fill-in flash' and not a mistake!).

Mar de Cristal Metro Station, Madrid

Typical of the Madrid metro designs in its great expansive phase from about 1995 to the onset of the recession and, deliberately over-edited by me, this represents a positive, thrusting, energetic attitude that faltered somewhat when the recession struck. However the legacy has left a metro network that, in large parts. exudes a dynamic upbeat feel that is very seductive. It still needs to be paid for, however!

HFF, everyone! Happy horse browsing among the blac…

The town of Saint Day is on the skyline. My parents live here. This is a tranquil scene. But in the middle decades of the nineteenth century, this would have been hell on earth. It was the mining capital of the world for tin, copper, and arsenic.

HFF! A corner of Pinner.

Pinner, Middlesex, One of the few true villages still extant in the London area. A photo from 1979 - my Pentax ME SLR and b/w film, scanned. I came here for a job interview. I was in my last year at uni. I was early and walked around and took a few photos (I had packed my SLR with my notes for the interview for some strange reason). I did OK at the interview, forgot all about it, went to France for a year after my finals, then got a message from my Dad that the firm in Pinner wanted to know what had happened as I had been due to start many months ago! I had very little recollection of all this, except a few black and white photos, of which this is one. Upshot: 35 years work in the Financial Services Industry, starting with this firm in Pinner before I finally upped sticks and came to Spain 7 years ago. That was the short answer. The long answer is ...........

HFF!!! and Cheers!!!!

. The Logan Rock pub, Treen (South), West Penwith, Cornwall. A terrific pub in the far west of Cornwall (and there are so many!).

HFF! Roadworks outside my flat.

Dedicated cycle lanes being built at the expense of parking for the residents. That's progress, I suppose. It means my girlfriend now can't park outside, but has to trawl the side streets for hours looking for a parking space. :o)

A Valdemanco garden, fenced off from the main road. Sierra de La Cabrera just visible. Note the hollows around the young (and therefore vulnerable to drought) fruit trees. All household waste water is usefully disposed of here. ... And this Spring has been exceptionally dry.

Happy Fence Friday!

There's a fence in there somewhere!

Pasiflora. My Mum's garden again! Despite some sour and peevish comments many of us received from an unexpected source (unexpected to me anyway!), let's make this terrific site flourish!! 'Surely it is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness!'

Colmenar de Oreja, Plaza Mayor.
