A Saturday road-trip to a northern city (Newcastle) on a gloriously sunny winter's day.

Walter,

I hadn't actually realised how similar Australia and the US appear to be - on the surface, at least! Or is it photographic 'treatment' and vision that make it seem so?

I vaguely recall some seaside pools in Scotland - Ayr or Prestwick, I think - that had that sort of artD-ish look to them: of a style, but not quite there in the architectural execution. I think them all gone, transmuted into carparks.

When I first came to live here in Spain, back in '81, there was a plethora of local books based on the then vanishing local architecture; it struck me that if the girls ended, then perhaps that might prove of interest as substitute. In the event, most of the places remain out of reach in estates or have been converted into rural agrihotels, or otherwise whacked about into something faux. Too late.

Michael Kenna did some interesting work in old lace factories in France (if memory betrays me not), and that, too, is photography of a certain charm - for me, at least. But you really have to be young, and fit. If I roam too far - impossible in the mornings - too much to do (such as type) before I can go out, then I worry about lunch and where to find it.

Days run ever shorter.

Frustrated by yesterday's failure to snap that attractive fabulous young lady on high moral grounds - my high grounds; she was below me, as explained yesterday - I had the cellpixer to hand and ready for the next dynamic, decisive moment should lightning (dammit Fred, now I'm confused!) strike twice. Alas, not a sign of either damsel or boat, not that I would swear that I'd recognize the boat again.

Anyway, distraught as I was, emotions tearing my soul apart, I wandered further along to a quiet corner to grieve in solitude, when I suddenly felt upon my shoulders the collective hand of all of those New Mexican heroes and heroines pushing, coaxing me into photographic action. What could I do - to resist would have been ungracious, so I made this little exposure in hommage to those who have gone before.

If there's a moral here, I guess it's that you shouldn't put your faith in shadows.

Thanks, Slobodan; just when I'd sworn never to bother using a cellphone camera again.

On the forest floor. The mind boggled a little, as it was a remote and uncomfortable spot.

Ken, you should treat your ladies to a little comfort. Then it would be their minds doing the boggling. Don't you have a car, at least?

P.S. You can tell I part-watched American Graffiti again last night, can't you? That music... wish I'd met Mel of the diner. Or better yet, the blonde in the T'bird.

Rob, please. I would have put the packet in my pocket rather than dumping it on the forest floor. And in fact there were several, so placing the whole scenario even further into fantasy land.

How times change; where the free spirits that sowed wild oats?

I told you all the 60s were a magical time. But no, you are mostly all in deepest denial...

P.S. I understand that Richard Branson's Virgin conglomerate also makes these interesting accessories; how surreal.

This is a more comfortable place for these activities, a graffito over the door says : "Una bella scopata con Marina 12.09.2004". (A good f... with Marina). I saw it during the editing, like David Hemmings in "Blow up"... (si parvissima licet... I know, I know, it doesn't licet)
