I Saw Sunday - a random assortment of things seen this week

Here are a random assortment of things I saw this week. . .

  • A spider living in the wing mirror of our car. Every time we stop he dashed out to repair his web.

  • Self conscious young girls walking with eyes on all who may be watching. Hair in the latest styles, constantly touched to check it is still in place. Impossible fashions, bravely worn as they giggle and move around each other like a shoal of young and brightly coloured fish.

  • Huddled men with crossed arms lean into lit matches, blow smoke like dragons. Breaktime chatter outside the busy warehouse. Shadows move on tarmac, patterns like water... light made fluid by the breeze. An engine starts and the moment is broken, shattered by the lorries roar.

  • At the bus stop, an old lady with a grey perm in a hairnet and buttoned up coat admires the tattoo on the young womans bare ankle. The younger woman lifts her foot onto the railings and they both lean in close with smiles on their faces, discussing the design.

Hmmm, maybe I will make this a regular feature - I Saw Sunday - (anyone fancy joining in?)
