As the sun went down in the west, one goes down there each night there must be loads of them lying about there, I wandered abroad attempting to find a photograph. Why? I was bored of sitting inside and wanted to be with people. The only difficulty taking pictures this late afternoon? People, they kept getting in the way! Bah! Who needs people after all? There is something about the sky at twilight. It is different every night yet almost the same, but not quite. You can take a picture from the same spot 365 days of the year and each would be different, except of course in Edinburgh where it would show rain two days out of three!
Stained glass windows are quite attractive if seen in the right light. From outside this one in the old town hall looks attractive but is hard to picture with the lights behind. From inside with the sun shining on the window it looks magnificent as you ascend the great stairway. Built in 1926 the old town hall was indeed a prestigious building and much money was thrown at it! Used for events now and the council are housed elsewhere.
It is interesting to see PR in action. The BBC news appears to be helping Nigella get her life sorted by offering several people who inform us how much she suffered through the recent court case. The prosecutions tale that she used drugs and allowed the accused PA's to spend £685,000 on themselves with her credit cards to avoid publicity harming her chances in the USA has resulted in the accused being freed and Nigella being seen as , well herself! So instead of this slapper cook we have instead a woman as false as we all thought she was. How some will be happy with this! Myself I am just glad we might lose a cook from the screen, there are FAR TOO MANY OF THEM on TV! I also feel unsurprised that her now ex-husband Satchi, the man famed for advertising Thatcher in the 70's and bad art ever since, turns out to be a bit of a bully and difficult to live with! I doubt she was any easier myself. Personally I don't wish to hear their private lives, especially as they fall apart, and it is very sad that those with so much have so little to live for. They appear to have no idea of a happy life. How do they get together? Money? Celebrity? Using the other as a trophy wife/husband? However the PR has sprung into action claiming the case centered on her drug abuse, not the accusations against the PA's, even though the appearance is that she allowed this fiddling to keep the drugs news quiet. The desperation for the US contract will bring us many stories I feel. Will it bring happiness to anyone involved in this sad case I wonder?
This picture from the Shorpy site features a Friday pre Christmas office party in 1925. My how they employees are having fun! There again if we were able to see the happy scene after the illicit booze had been downed we might come across a very differing picture. Just who would be informing the boss, soon to be ex-boss, of her opinions, which lass would have scratched the eyes out of which lad, and just who's feet are sticking out from under that desk....?
