Sunday Morning Walk
I have not taken any photo's in ages, so this morning I decided to take the dog for an alternative walk with a little detour through Hull's older part of the city center, and bring my camera along for thrills and spills! Nothing much caught my eye, but I took these shots and I fiddled with them in Photoshop, and I think they look OK! Enlarge them for a better view!
I spent yesterday working until 1 o'clock then I went home and got ready for the football match. The football match was pretty dull itself, but I didn't get to see most of it anyway, because a large contingent of the Millwall supporters were only at the game for trouble and trouble they caused! I spent most of the game looking to my right, keeping an eye out for flying objects (I sit very close to the away supporters) as they ripped out over 50 seats and the metal brackets which the seats are bolted onto, and launched them into our supporters and at the police officers who had been called in to stop them charging into our crowd. Having said that, it was a good day at the office for me personally as I didn't actually get hit by any of the seats, brackets and coins they were throwing at us, but had a £1 coin and a 50 pence piece land at my feet, and as the game was quite dull they did at least provide me with entertainment as they battled with the police, who were in full riot gear with batons at the ready!
I have also treated myself recently to some DVD's of programme's I used to watch when I was young. I already have Transformers and Thundercats on DVD but I have also just added Voltron: Defender of the Universe and Terrahawks (Zelda and her clan used to scare me as a 5 year old kid!) I am also waiting for a decent DVD release of Fraggle Rock.
