Glad you liked it, sort of wished it was more harbour-y if that makes sense (but i am a cynic...)

also i have no idea if they do it now, but you used to be able to ride a train along the railtracks there,

They quite possibly have repainted the trains but im not sure
as for the crane, it is i think

Is it illegal to want to go to bed with a forumer's commentary?

More great photos Helium, I love the multi-coloured houses, tower block scenes and the red 'dinosaurs'!

im sure it comes in handy though have you seen that X-files episode where that man vapourises people with his own shadow (albeit accidentally bar one)?

if i took up shadow spotting as i hobby, i'd be much more aware of such things so i could avoid them just in case

I am not familiar with Bristol at all, and I am not familiar with England or even Europe, but I have looked at your first few pictures and I like them. It would be nice if I knew what you were talking about, to make this thread even more interesting, but I will be checking in on occasion to see what you post.

Very nice pics as usual Helius - i imagine the area around the Bridge, with its uber expensive houses and hilly environment is like Bristols version of Hampstead

well yeah and there's an even richer area to the north of that.

(also there's an area to the north known as the downs which is a large expanse of fields (or heaths ) rather like hampsteads' very own heath(s) (only with erm... a gorge ) also like Hampstead it shares a very similar cottaging and men romping in the woods history

What is it about heaths in affluent parts of town that attract certain people to indulge in certain acts?

'tis a strange world we live in.
