Gory details

30 Sep

Quite possibly the remains of a peregrine falcon’s dinner dumped unceremoniously outside the Crown Court earlier this year.

Do we not need to light lanterns in the morning?

Seems we do in Cottingham at least.

Rubbish

20 Sep

Rubbish is how I’ve been feeling lately and when you feel that you are surrounded by a city full of trash it’s probably not a good time to try to post ‘nice’ things on a daily photoblog. So until cheerier times this blog is going part-time.

Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be

17 Sep

Regular visitors might recognise this as the pub formerly known as the Fishbowl, Hockney’s and also Aussie Beach. Seems it was also once called Nostalgia, I missed that. Anyhow it’s being disemboweled with a view to who knows what.

Green Light

16 Sep
I wondered how this relic has managed to survive the purge on old lights that the Council carried out some years back. Then I remembered that this is on Newland Park. Let’s just say that this is not the poorest area in town, many of the houses are best described as mansions. It’s the sort of area where potholes in the road are simply not allowed to exist (I’m sure you could play billiards on the road!) while the rest of the town suffers a rough ride and broken suspensions.

Football crazy

15 Sep

Somebody obviously was feeling a tad homesick (possibly drunk, who could say?) and simply had to tell the world of their affection for Zagłębie Sosnowiec, a football team. I somehow doubt that in the fair city of Sosnowiec there’s a wall celebrating Hull City Association Football Club but you never know. Speaking of HCAFC the owner wants to change the name of the club to Hull Tigers on the grounds that ‘city’ is such an “common” word. As you know Hull is a idyllic place with no real great issues to worry about so this has caused uproar and dismay among those who follow this ‘club’ and pay good money to watch a ball being kicked from one end of a grassy field to the other.
For those of you into 1980’s popular music combos this is on Grafton Street home to the Housemartins and later the Beautiful South. 

A little bit of fungi

13 Sep

Came across this rather large fungus sprouting from a what looked like a tree stump near Victoria Avenue.
More monochrome fun over at the Weekend in Black and White here.
