This De Havilland DH89 Dragon Rapide clearly has it's heart set on a career in modelling. Everything, from the wet-look canopy and the dark, moody eye makeup, to the striking, almost symmetrical pose that's overflowing with attitude (should that be altitude?) everything just screams 'Poster Boy'.

Float (fly?) your advertising copy in that pale, form enhancing sky and your upcoming vintage airshow will be sold out almost as soon as the posters are pasted-up on the billboards.

Usual caveats etc.

While searching through my archive, looking for a specific image, I was struck by the very graphical nature of some of the shots that languish on the digital high-shelves of my library as it were.

Therefore, in an effort to reduce the overall amount of languishing, here are a few I made earlier…

One wonders what exactly it is that the Officials officiate? How many Officers are there? And what can be inferred from the door, left slightly ajar? Are we to presume that one or more of these Executives are less than fastidious in applying the rules of their position?

And, perhaps more importantly, could it be that unauthorised individuals have surreptitiously entered where they are not at liberty to be? And what clandestine purposes could they be about, that they would act in such a nefarious manner?

Questions. Always questions.

If only you could experience the combined aromas of the hundred or so different oils contained in this box. A surprisingly balanced combination that permeates the cupboard in which the box resides and quite wonderfully elevates the senses as you open the doors.

Well. Let’s start with Arthur Brown. Yes, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown. That’s him, on stage, with his funny flaming hat and a whip.

Discounting Mr Brown, it’s a cave painting depicting a prehistoric shaman, who’s acting out the forthcoming hunt such that it might successfully supply substantial quantities of meat for the tribe. Perhaps they’ll bag a mammoth.

Or maybe it’s…

For some reason, and I suspect that it might have something to do with the possibility that, in the near future, my atoms may well be split into their component particles by one of Mr Putin's atomic bombs, I see quite a dark scene...

There, on the right, emerging from the depths, a terrible sea monster takes a second snap at a slightly dismembered starfish, one of whose severed limbs can be seen floating to the surface.

And there, on the left, resting in blissful ignorance just below the surface, a rare, leafless Leafy Sea Dragon is taking-in what remains of the day's sunshine before heading off home for a nice quiet night with his deveolping brood.

Let's hope that the monster is so engrossed in the starfish that he doesn't spot the Dragon, allowing it to float clamly away.

And don't worry too much about the starfish, as each severed limb will grow a new body and those new, err... clones, will most likely carry on with whatever it is that starfish get up to.
