Thank you for the comments on my hairdressing skills 😛 I had never tried cutting my own hair before so I’m still terribly pleased with myself!
POTW May 16th – May 22nd: Smoke and Chimneys
There was a big fire in a local scrapyard two days ago. I happened to be coming into town just a couple of hours after it began, so I went to investigate and took a hundred or so photos of it. It is really close to Ouseburn, the place where I visited all the art studios and the city farm last week, so I was rather worried about the lambs suffering from smoke inhalation! Luckily only one man was injured (somehow hurt his eye on a fire extinguisher – sounds painful!) and all the animals are fine 🙂 I liked the photo from this particular angle because of the collection of chimneys – I don’t know what it is about them, they are just so orderly and so fitting with the smoke.
Here’s another, because it is mandatory to get iconic buildings in the same photograph as skyline warping events:
And the fire itself, complete with tiny fireman:
If not for the fire, this would have been my POTW. I took it back in Dorset two weeks ago, but as we have already established, POTW exists only under my rules, which I can break any time I want 😛

I came back a little bit later to take this photo from the same position. It’s a bit grainy, but I love the colours:
