Comics, new moon and cordial.

The last post has gone up on 12 Old Masters.

And here are some mela pictures on Tunbridge Wells Photographer.

1. A copy of Astro City: Life in the Big City arrives and the washed-out colours, character-driven stories, Golden Age nostalgia and mysteries unexplained lead to love at first sight.

2. There is a fingernail of new moon. It is low in the sky, nearly behind the roof line. The only way to see it is to stand on sofa in my room and lean out on to the balcony.

3. A bottle of elderflower cordial among the shopping.


  1. I love Tunbridge Wells, it makes me smile with the way it seems so straightlaced but actually challenges some stereotypes. For example, we have frightfully well spoken and eloquent skating yobs. Go skating yobs, you tell 'em!

  2. I'm a big fan of the Tunbridge Wells skaters as well - totally non-threatening, usually happy and smiling. And there's something calming about the rumble of a skateboard down an otherwise quite street.

    We have them in Tonbridge as well, but the ones in my road are all about 10 years old, so it seems wrong to label them as "yobs" (even in a friendly way!)
