Not much to say really, I just had an opportunity to head out in a spot of half-decent autumn weather as potentially there weren’t many left in the year and it’s always good to stretch your legs if you can …. The so called experts that appear on the tele-box and write in newspapers and magazines seem to bang on about how a brisk short walk can do your health wonders, so today I tried to heed their advice – I probably don’t do it often enough to make much difference though.
Still I think it may of helped with energy levels, but I’m not sure if this was offset somewhat by the stresses of driving back and forth in Coventry’s traffic trying to be back at work on time!!!!
Whilst there, as well as some conventional snaps, I tried to get a bit arty with a few photo’s of the wire sculpture of Lady Godiva and the War Memorial Cenotaph with its very pronounced verticals and angles … Not sure if I like them but I’ll let you decide if you think they work or not.
I hope you enjoyed my scribblings ….
