Don’t Feed The Horses

The sign is in Heaton Park.

Do not feed the horses. They are on a special diet.

Please note, I’m not making fun of this sign–I completely understand the horses should not be fed by the park’s visitors. In fact, it annoys me when I see people feeding animals in places where there are big bold signs instructing NOT to feed the animals. Like, you think that doesn’t apply to you? Ugh…

So, the sign. It just made me smile, that’s all. I’ve noticed I’ve gathered a few pictures of different signs, it seems they are one of the things I like to photograph, both with my camera and the smartphone. The blog is helping me discover myself and I love it! Here’s the tag.

How about you? Is there an object you like to take pictures of that is not the obvious landscape/nature/portrait thing? Tell me in the comments and share your work!

Everything is Connected

This sign is outside one of the many University buildings on Oxford Road in Manchester.

Why have I taken a picture of such a random thing? Because 1. that’s what I do and 2. it reminded me of something.

If you’ve watched Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, then you will recognise “Everything is connected” as a sort of tagline of the show. (If you haven’t watched it, then I highly recommend it–it’s funny and clever and has amazing characters, so basically everything a good TV series should be.)

It also reminded me of another thing, non-fictional. Hint: it’s to do with those evil twins of Brexit and Trump and a certain firm called Cambridge Analytica. Link.

Random and Weird Phone Shots Is Back

Yeah, it’s been a while. Five months since the last RAWPS post–hoo, I didn’t realise it really.

I saw this sign outside the Scribbler shop in Manchester. If you’re not familiar with this retailer, they sell cards, hence the Valentine’s Day thing.

Actually, it’s not that stupid. You should love yourself most of all.

You can also date your own self if you want. Which I’m kinda doing.

Bonus

It’s been 18 months since the first Random and Weird Phone Shot entry so here’s an updated pic. The trainers are still hanging there. They survived many a stormy weather, they’ll probably still be there after the world ends.

But that is a different story altogether.

How many of you have got the song stuck in your head now?

This is how we should resolve conflicts–with music! When rock met rap, or, if you can’t stop a wall being built, do a Steven Tyler and tear a hole in it. That part where he sings through the hole while Run and DMC give him that look is never not funny.

Legends.
