Think I’ll call this one ‘Bang!’…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s random dictionary words are: chasuble, chasmogamy, chawdron, chavender, charpoy, and bodrag. Please have these words looked up and placed in suitable sentences ready for Professor Mouldie first thing after breakfast tomorrow morning. The professor will be conducting the lesson wearing a brightly coloured and rather tight lycra cycling outfit; you should not remark on or draw attention to this.

DW713Here’s another picture from my days of old-style, black and white, film and stinky darkroom photography. It was taken, here in Dulltown – oh, probably back in the 1980s, at some industrial site near the river where there was some demolition and land clearing going on.
Isn’t it a magnificent thing? I’ve seen far less impressive public sculptures – eat your hearts out Anthony Caro, Anish Kapoor!… There’s not a lot to indicate the size of this thing, is there? But I do remember it being at least two metres high. It really looks like those rips in the metal were the result of something desperately trying to get out, perhaps an unexpected build up of gaseous pressure, or perhaps a large ape, of the King Kong family, had punched its way to freedom after being incarcerated in there by some crazy frightened scientists – we have a few crazy scientists here in Dulltown – they have an underground lair where they twiddle knobs to remotely control and tinker with the city’s apathy levels… no, no, sorry, I’m getting carried away now…
Anyway I reckon it’s a ‘fairly good’ picture of an amazing thing… see, it’s almost gesturing and waving to us, and it’s shouting, ‘Ahoy!’…
