Corbyn Wins


In last week's post I shared my photos & videos of Angela Clarke's 60th Birthday at The Hebden Bridge Trades Club.
 This week ,I share an image kindly   taken &  permitted me by local friend & photographer Roger O'Doherty.
Thank You Roger.
It captures the moment Jeremy Corbyn's victory was announced on the Big Screen at The Trades Club on Saturday.
 Angela can be seen stood at the back,her hands raised in celebration!

In A Dream You Saw A Way To Survive And You Were Full Of Joy.



My search for cleverness continues..........
Me & Cath went into Manchester's Whitworth Gallery to see an exhibition called   In A Dream You Saw A Way To Survive And You Were Full Of Joy
To be honest, I knew little about it,but I just loved the title! It was an electic mix of curated  stuff.
I mean,Andy Warhol and Eric Gill in the same space !

The first Gill sculpture I,ve ever seen...it was the highlight for me.Brilliant.
I'm still not a big fan of The Whitworth.It brands itself as an International Gallery.Very well healed visitors....it could just as easily be in London or New York. I get no feel of Northernness or Manchesterness.Frankly ,it feels a bit up itself!
 All those comforable people coming to look at photos of homeless street sleepers, while outside the beggars of Manchester seem to multiply each time i visit the city.

13th August : Happy Valley Pride.

https://zimnoch.smugmug.com/Dropbox/Happy-Valley-Pride-13th-August/
So. I went into Hebden Bridge this afternoon.
Taking a look at Hebden Bridge's first ever Pride.
Really nice feeling around the town.
 Hebden has been a Gay friendly place for many years.I'm surprised this hasnt happened before now.......
I was thinking of David Cameron today. The only "brave " thing he ever did was to support Gay Rights legislation.
I guess he must have  some rich gay friends?, Because he never did fuck all for gay disabled people:gay midwives:the  gays homeless:gay public service workers:gay ambulance drivers:gay lorry drivers:gay youth;gay unemployed:etc etc.....

#KeepCorbyn :Manchester.


It's going to be a hard fight "for the soul of the Labour Party".
If we are going to put our faith in Chilcot & the 'big majority in the last Labour Leadership election ',we are fucked.
  it will be different this time..... I cannot believe Chilcot is going to deliver any knock-out blow to Blair ( establishment reports never do). yougov reports that currently ,its 50/50 for Jeremy Corbyn among Labour members.Given the media this week, that is hardly surprising .
Plus ,expect all sorts of 'dirty tricks' from Blair & co.Along the way ....( "60,000 new members this week"...they wouldn't be reporting this if it was 'bad'news would they ...?)
 It is going to be a tough fight.But (whatever the result) Socialism Maintains.

rustic fences & and sepia sheep.



A photo I took on   Saturday in   the  middle  of Halifax's 4    day International Street Market.
More images  https://zimnoch.smugmug.com/Dropbox/Halifax-7th-May-2016/
 This is a sepia saturday post.My take on the theme is rustic rural fences & sheep.
As a child West Yorkshire sheep were  sepia due to all the pollution  from the  mill chimney smoke. Whenever   travelling, i could exactly  calibrate   distance from   home ,  by   the ever changing  shades in their fleece.   Essentially,Yorkshire sheep were the first SatNav's............

ßringing a painting into safety.

Bob Dylan: Live at the Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan; April 28, 2016.
 My Brother-in-Law Dave did the London Marathon last Sunday.
He remarked, with surprise,how many potholes they had in the roads since he ran the exact same route two years ago. 
I guess if you pound those streets each day you don't notice the decay. It takes a fresh pair of eyes& feet to notice change.
My take on this week's prompt ("bringing a painting into safety") is how do we rescue  from our collapsing world what we need to preserve ?ake  personal remains our own....
Sometimes that is harder than it sounds.Solid monuments might dissolve into sand & trickle through our fingers.........



This is a sepia saturday post.
