The Bournemouth tourist people are going to have a price on your head at this rate.
Bill Phillips: This is the last one Bournemouth is safe!

Did you happen to see a portly old porcine critter, sipping on a latte, in the vicinity, Bill?
Bill Phillips: He had more sense and stayed at home
These are not the "Chamber of Commerce" images are they?
Bill Phillips: In this country anything is possible Elizabeth
I hope that you were not waiting in line for a seat Bill... they even have the chairs chained down....petersmile
Bill Phillips: It was closed....Bournemouth was closed grin

I think that this would be better, very good even, if the first level of bars were not there Bill, it makes it impossibl, as a form of barrier, to engage with the depth of the image as a whole.
Bill Phillips: Ah but you are missing the point. It is raining, why would you want to get in even if you could?

I just thought of that... pretty good eh?

The Rainy Day
by Henry W. Longfellow

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains,and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains,and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart, and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.
Bill Phillips: Into each life some rain must fall. An oft quoted line. Thank you for the poem Philine

No difficulty getting an nice airy outdoor seat with a view across the golden sands.
Bill Phillips: If the doors hadn't been locked......

Perfect for B&W Bill, it really adds to the feel of the shot.
Bill Phillips: It felt very wet Sally grin

I think I'd rather look at this than Chad's contribution today!
Bill Phillips: You and everybody else

You excel yourself, Bill
Bill Phillips: Well that's very nice of you Lisl
Such misery in monochrome! How can anyone in Bournemouth bear it?
Bill Phillips: It is what i love about this country. We do grin
As long as you picked up the raincoat from yesterday's shot.....go for it.
Bill Phillips: I was well protected against the rain...and still got wet!

This one works less well Bill, not sure of your thinking here.
Bill Phillips: It was the last one I tookgrin I pretended to Chad there was some thinking behind it . The music is good if you like Art Tatum though
So this is the end of the series Bill, at least we got to see that rather interesting lamp on the right hand side.
Bill Phillips: Even I have had enough of Bournemouth Brian
'Rain stopped play', comes to mind!
Bill Phillips: Hahaha rain stopped everything
Rain stops play ... I've got an Art Tatum LP that I bought in the early sixties. I doubt that it will ever get played again ... shame.
Bill Phillips: Well you should. Though why i say that I don't know because it really isn't my sort of music at all
Tatum's tea, chairs and rain by the sea, what a wonderful cocktail Bill! (and a nice photo)...
Bill Phillips: Thanks Juan Carlos smile

Better in sunny Wales boyosmile
Bill Phillips: We had glorious sunshine when we went to Aberystwyth
The last one , are you going to have a long break now. Siberia comes to mind.
Bill Phillips: Actually I might go to Teignmouth.......there is a dearth of decent pictures of that fine town.
Quite a nice view from your shelter Bill...
Bill Phillips: I must go back one day when the sun is shining!

Lovely outlook I expect, even in the rain, though cups of tea might get a bit diluted
No, it's too much, Bills - you could try selling them to Ryan Air, to persuade people to go abroad!
