Went off to drop Diya off on one of her birthday parties and despite the admittedly wonderful attractions of sitting in the middle of 1000’s of screaming kids and yummy mummies, I went off with Camelia canon to take pics.
You have to realise where this place was. It was in Watford, inside a damn industrial area. Pretty cruddy to have a children’s playground, but so be it, when you come outside you see industrial warehouses, rows of parking, backing up to railway lines. The trees were all nekkid and just to top it all, it had a high power electricity tension line running through the area, with a pylon right on top of the children’s playground centre. So I walked from one end of the estate to the other, just along the fencing which separates the estate from the embankment up to the railway lines.
Right in the middle of the bottom of the pylon, I was moving up and down like an idiot trying to line up the camera, lol, saw couple of teenage girls sniggering at me, lol
Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey!.
Looks like the water has frozen and refrozen several times for these ice slabs to form.
One of the warehouses belong to John Lewis. Looks like this is where the old white goods appliances which are sold by John Lewis go to die. A small group of fridges, TV's, washing machines, driers and ovens. Very sad…
More pylons, but looking like flags…Then the light started going and was really really cold and then i disappeared back inside the playground where it was warm.
