The Vinegar Pond

The Vinegar Pond, on Norwich's (in?)famous Mousehold Heath. A dew pond formed from old gravel pits and wartime manoeuvres with military vehicles which supposedly packed the earth down tight enough to facilitate standing water.

As I took these I had a fairly random conversation about graveyards with a guy who looked like Alan Moore. Started to rain soon after. Good for the pond, I suppose.

Scar Crow

Spotted whilst walking around a gorgeous Norwich allotment one evening a few weekends back.

I love scarecrow imagery. Frightening, rustic, homemade.  This one is a particular beaut as it reminds me of the horrifying, button-eyed, masked killer in 'Nightbreed.'

A scarecrow can only be improved when a crow is spotted nonchalantly sitting on its shoulder...
