fish and chips – this is a good example of the m8 infra red “bug” where blacks look purple

 

L1000874
the royal standard – excellent for a pint of palmers 200!

A regular haunt – the royal standard at lyme

Lyme has a good selection of colourful beach huts although they seem quite small
DSC_2135
this artwork in east reach is quite new – it is to promote a local tatoo parlour

i assumed this lady is protesting aginst the number of roads that have been closed in central taunton with a “road closure” sign in front of her burnt to cinders – she might just be watching the busker but someone seems to have it in for road closures!

An eye catching display of bags in a shop in taunton – not sure what the shop is callled but the signs say “outdoors” – not sure if they are bags though

watch out for sharks in taunton library!

this footbridge is part of taunton’s 21 million pound nidr scheme – it replaces the old “40 steps” bridge and has ramps that can be used by cycles and wheelchairs – the old bridge just had 40 steps at each end
DSC_2163
cycle racks for tdbc council staff at the deane house offices – they look fairly secure compared with some racks and are covered – i prefer a brompton which can just be parked under a desk but for people who use non-brompton bikes these would be handy racks
DSC_2169
2 flags – one flag for each match
DSC_2170
i wonder how many reflections of myself i can count?

portaloo – one section of the nidr road connecting the a38 priory roundabout with the a358 near taunton school
DSC_2191
the old “kingston loop” bridge – it appears this bridge will be gone very shortly as it will be replaced with a new road bridge forming part of the NIDR road scheme
DSC_2192
nidr pipes – these pipes lie on the path of the new road adjecent to whitehall in taunton – the 2 main town churches are visible behind the pipes
DSC_2197
it looks from this sign that you cannot enter this area unless you are a shopper or have “written permission” – i wonder how you get the written permission if you are not a shopper and are therefore barred from entering.

praying that his bus will turn up soon

there seem to be a lot of dragons popping up in taunton recently – this has been decorated with sharpie marker pens
