We don't do the trick-or-treating - traditionally, the begging for sweets is done on St. Martin's Day, but the carving of the pumpkin has become a tradition.

Spent most of the day deskbound.

A while ago on a grey October Sunday we did manage to leave the house - just in time to catch the last demonstration of a working water-mill.

Indulge me - I need a break from marking and that's the perfect excuse to go through my pictures and post some of my latest.

My town is at or near the top of all sorts of negative lists - most of them signs of deprivation - like the number of people on benefits, teenage pregnancies and so on.

But - and I wish I had proof of it - it is probably also one of the towns with a more than average number of public playgrounds. They are reasonably well-maintained and clean, although most of them have equipment that is very old.

Saturday was one of those early autumn days that wanted to be a summer day - blue skies and t-shirt weather. After the kid had been taken to his swimming lesson with the grandparents he wanted to take his bike out for a ride around the neighbourhood.

Prompts are a great way of getting you to think about your snapshots. You must find a connection and can't just post beach picture 15. (Not that I took many pictures of beaches this time, though there are still too many doors & doorknockers on my hard drive.)

Exposé really got me thinking.
I could have gone the real estate route - showcasing a particular place which is now mostly in ruins, but used to be a very desirable residence a long, long time ago, but I know that this is not quite what [ profile] comava had in mind.

The kid took this - my contribution is minor tinkering to attempt a more level horizon & some slight cropping.

I'm very busy with school and when I look at this picture I'm indeed "thinking sadly about something that you would like to have, especially something in the past that you can no longer have" - as this definition says.
