a great light creates deep shadows........

The post title was taken from a book I'm currently reading "The Sorrow Of Angels" by Jon Kalman Stefánsson
"We're in a leaky rowing boat with a rotten net, and we're going to catch stars".
This post was originally intended for last week's Sepia Saturday theme.(  Illusions:trick photos: big& small) But I was too late submitting, so.......I'm thinking  it can equally apply this week instead?

I took this photo on 30 August 1997.In Howth near Dublin .It was the weekend Princess Dianne died in Paris.
 I was with Julie Boardman and her friend His Drayness (who i went to teacher training college with) Julie said "take a photo of me squashing this man" ( a sepia display of 1900's images..this one being   The Giant's Causeway in Ireland's 'Six Counties'.)
So I did!
  This week we booked seats at Manchester Royal Exchange to see  this: play in September.It's currently playing the Edinburgh Festival and stars Julie Hesmondhalgh.
Quote of the day (again from the Edinburgh Festival) .
Frankie Boyle "..has acid words for anyone who is worried about plastic in the ocean when there are refugees drowing in it..." (Independent)

A one-legged -beggar in Liverpool.Today shook my hand......



Me & Cath went back to Liverpool today.
(We were there a couple of weeks ago.)  Got me a mess of  discount tickets from Northern Rail which 'need using. ......
Although we both had the start of Colds (& I had toothache) If not used today....,they would be  lost .
So,....... we  went to the Bluecoat Museum.
[Not been there since 1976 when i saw a film there with His Drayness .]
 It pissed down. Beggars sat in puddles. England's shame.
 Outside Job Centre Plus+ a man with one-leg was begging.I gave him(after much searching) a 50p coin. I told him it was all the change I had on me .
 He shook my hand. I could have cried as i left him.....a proud man ,who stands taller than i ever will........
This country is a mess......
