British Airways post Brexit

 

The second movement is one of my favourites.

 

I used to have this strange ambition to listen to all 104 Haydn symphonies and a few years ago I boiought a box set of all of them and played them, in order from No 1 to no 104.  The second movement of no 24 is still a delight to me.

This looks like something from a fantasy film Bill. its really good.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Frank. I see what you mean
It is a wonderful image, Bill...the Circus is in town...
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ray. That is actually Butlin's Holiday camp
This is coool. Sweet perspective.
Bill Phillips: I took quite a few pictures but this one was the pick of the bunch
Très joli. On dirait une photo tirée d'un film.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Martine. Frank thought the same
As Frank says - it just doesn't look real... but rather an illustration! Love this!!! A fun choice of music for the image!
Bill Phillips: I am a big fan of Haydn

Bill Phillips: Thank you oh great one. Actually this has only been moderately twiddled

It looks as if you have been mind-travelling
Bill Phillips: My mind wanders a lot Lisl
Needless to say, Bill, we've been watching the Brexit shenanigans every day lately and really wonder if after all is said and done, there will be NO Brexit??? For Astrid and me, that will be wonderful, if you don't mind our saying so?!
Bill Phillips: I am a remainer and am totally against us leaving the EU. Teresa May now faces a vote of no confidence within her own party. She may win it but depending on the size of the vote against her she will be damaged to a greater or lesser extent and will have little authority left. The trouble is who would replace her. The nightmare choice would be Boris Johnson. I might start learning Dutch

The view he/she has... that is just amazing, Bill. That music is a delight. I was telling on Sunday to friends of ours that I use to study and in the background I had classical music. My parents were great with all kinds of music. Haydn symphonies are wonderful.
Bill Phillips: Generally speaking the later ones are the best but there are some gems in the early ones too

That is a large steering wheel. You are a cultured man Bill, and I like this music. I did not get far beyond the Clock symphony and his Mass (not sure which one or if it’s his only. We sang it). We might do it next year to celebrate our fiftieth.
Bill Phillips: I think that is the air conditioning unit Chad. According to Wiki he wrote 14 and the last one was his final composition. The Creation oratorio is the choral work he is best known for I think
Fine weather over Minehead Butlins, I could never contemplate going up in one of those things. Nice music by the way. Maureen was out last night so I caught up with a prom I'd recorded from 2016, the second half was all Faure, the Pavane, Cantique and Requiem, nice relaxing way to spend an evening.
Bill Phillips: I don't seem to listen to as much music as I used to, which is daft because I love music!

We have a shopping centre under a similar "tented" roof close to where I live, with similar mountains in the background. You almost had me fooled.

From Haydn: Haydn Trumpet Concerto (3rd Movement), played by Wynton Marsalis - go treat yourself.
Bill Phillips: I love his trumpet concerto. I will try and find this version!
A spectacular capture, Bill. Love it!
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Beverly

I'm with Frank on the fantasy film look - very effective Bill!
Bill Phillips: It hadn't occurred to me Anne but I can see what you and Frank mean
everyone is on a tight budget now Bill... well seen....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Going to get a lot tighter I fear Peter

what a fascinating image

the wheel in the sky is remarkable
Bill Phillips: It is some sort of Microlight I think but a very basic one!
I doubt whether BA will be that advanced!
Bill Phillips: Is it now? grin
I am so darned sad about Brexit and feel bad for Ms. May. i like your photo and hope the airport doesn't deflate like the feelings in your country.
Bill Phillips: The whole Brexit thing is degenerating into a farce. Mrs May will be fine. Her husband's company operates out of a tax haven
what was the event or this location Bill
Bill Phillips: We were on holiday in Minehead back in early November and this bloke was just flying his microlite. This was the best of the many snaps I took
A fabulously bizarre picture, Bill. Love it. (and the music, of course.)
