A "Towel Day" special.

Nod to Douglas Adams, first remember listening to H2G2 in the late 70s/early 80's as a weekly radio series on BBC R4

Always liked the look of nixie tube displays, much nicer than modern LEDs and LCDs

Valentine's day special.

This is a piece of coal that fell from the grate while I was stoking the fire on Valentine's day 21 years ago. Seemed like an omen so I kept it.

(the red is PP)

A Halloween Special

This house was originally the cemetery keeper's home on the site of the ruins of the 1214 Holy Ghost on Chapel Hill Basingstoke. Always fancied buying it, but it never came on the market at the right time.

The 'Voice of cricket' John Arlott was the son of the cemetery keeper and lived in the house for many years. For a small town graveyard it has a lot of notable inhabitants, amongst others: John Liddle a WW1 recipient of the Victoria Cross, Thomas Burberry founder of the Burberry empire, and Mrs Blunden who was buried alive here (twice), leading to the Victorian fashion of having some kind of external alarm that could be operated from inside a coffin.

I've been photographing this shed for 20 years now, it started off as a characterful, working, and fully functional woodman's shed at the side of a lane; at some point it became abandoned and went into decay and nature started to take over, the shed slowly collapsed storm by storm and has been holding out from the final collapse for a couple of years now, I visited yesterday and it had succumbed; RIP shed.

At some point I'll put a series together.

It used to have a sibling corrugated iron shed nearby too, but that got crushed by a fallen tree a few years back.

I think someone else has been taking a photographic interest in this too as there have been regularly snapped back branches where they've grown over view points, was that you?

The shed is near the Barley Mow bridge on the Basingstoke canal in Spratts Hatch Lane at Dogmersfield Hampshire
