Topical Photography This Week

Ref: DSC_5268

Above: Impressed by the town of Ross-on-Wye due to visits to see Tina and I, Robin Collett, Tina's dad and owner of 'Bromsgrove Bus and Coach Company' is now regularly bringing bus loads of visitors to the town. I just happened to be calling in to the Hope & Anchor for a cup of tea when I spotted one of his busses in the car park, driven by Nigel Taylor. Bromsgrove Bus and Coach Company are specialists in bus travel for the disabled and for school parties. (The skylight is on the Conservatory building behind, by the way and not the bus!)

Below: The 3rd Ross Brownies enjoyed a sausage sizzle on Wednesday 13th July at the Prospect. The girls went in fancy dress as tramps, football, tv and film stars. In the photograph, with the Brownies are - left to right: Brown Owl - Annette Mitchell, Tawny Owl - Fay Nicholls and Young Leaders, Sarah Ellis and Alison Frecknell. Brown Owl, Annette Mitchell has just been presented with a badge and certificate, presented to her at the recent County AGM by County Commissioner, Mrs Jean Parkes.

Bottom: Oates and Sons have taken over both the old Pound Shop and Benjamin's shops in Broad Street for their combined venture of selling bargain goods in one of the shops and specializing in party goods, including bouncy castle hire from the other. Pictured below, Doug, Gavin, Wayne and Marie Oates take time out to have a photograph taken in Broad Street.

I should, on reflection (hehe) have used a polarizing filter for this shot but I had to step out into the traffic to take it and felt rather vulnerable.

Ross-on-Wye from an Unusual Angle

Following on from last week, when I mentioned a photograph sent in by a lady from 'Walford' which I had intended to publish but had lost, Julie Andrews, a regular viewer of Wyenot News contacted me again. I had it wrong, Julie was not from Walford, she lives in St. Weonards and has sent me the photograph again. It is a view of Ross from Garway Hill.

Sorry Julie - I really wasn't with it last month. Thank you for contacting me again and your photograph is below. It looks a great view of the town from up there and when I am next in the area, I will investigate the views further. With the name, 'Julie Andrews', I can't believe I couldn't remember who sent it. There is another Julie Andrews in Switzerland. She's into nuns and goats (I have the video evidence to prove it) and, along with my daughter, Sarah, she shares my October birthday.

The White duck of the family? No April Fool joke this time - this solitary white duckling is part of a mallard family living on the River Wye by the Hope & Anchor. Maybe Mummy or Daddy Duck was playing away from home. The scene reminded me of a Limerick I learned many years ago:

There was a young woman called Sarkie . . . (Tina refused to allow me to finish the rhyme.)
