I`m in with a reworked old one as I`ve just not been into town lately. Usually in my Haworth 1940`s street visits I find it hadr to get a street full of "dressed" characters without someone with an anorak or ug boots wandering through so this was a rare one.

One from last month for me.

Bordeaux has what is allegedly the largest water mirror in the world. Located between the old stock exchange and the river it is 3450m2. Called simply La Place Miroir it is a very popular place for people to play and in the heat cool down when the mist sprayers are on.

I have had to go for an old photo. Went out yesterday evening but didn't get anything I was particularly happy with.
May the Force be with you.

Not sure what happened to last week! Juts didn't seem to have time to do anything - the annoying thing is that I did have an archive shot I could have used!

I can relate to that Mark, someone there are not enough hours in the day to do everything.
May the Force be with you.

Today I was working from home on one project (remote onto the pc). My boss calls to say there is an issue on another site so remote into that one (find stuff in manual) had another call from another site. Remoted into that one and sorted that. And had a call from a colleague who was doing an install which I had planned to test with him remotely. 

So I’ve done about 600miles virtually today. 😂
