Where's the Sunshine?



Early morn I ventured out looking for pictures while the streets were quiet.  Sadly the gray clouds overhead spoiled things somewhat.  I did attempt a shot of the golden owl grasping a black mouse with its beak but the light was too poor for a success.  From behind I did get a good shot of him looking towards the 1926 town hall, given by the Courtauld's, and recently refurbished. Why an owl on the drinking fountain I know not.  Old 'Frith' pictures show a light there but a skinny bird on top, possibly a thrush not someone out of the celebs pages.  By the seventies the light appears to have vanished but the owl has been there since I brought my presence to the town.  This too was expensively cleaned and renovated a year or so ago.  Now the town wasters hang out here, no not me!

That owl is really cool.

It's a fine thing to have - but you are right, it would be improved by a bit of sunshine to make it glitter.

Jerry, cool but dark.

Jenny, Indeed.

It is England, after all.

There is another shiny owl in England, a bit to the north though. Perhaps more even than I know.

It's looking like another week of being confined to indoor picutres

How sad. However it's par for the course!
