Miners, not autumn and convenience.

1. I love this quote about the trapped miners responding to the camera lowered down to them. The Chilean president, Sebastian Pinera said: "Many of them approached the camera and put their faces right up against it, like children, and we could see happiness and hope in their eyes." But four months still seems terribly long to wait to get back to the surface.

2. The berries on this mountain ash are still green -- autumn is not coming to this alleyway just yet.

3. A small boy, trousers round his ankles, piddles proudly in the park.
