Afternoon in Flushing #2

Photographs from Flushing, take two!

The most disintigrated sign I've ever seen.
 Well, I liked this skip.
I really liked this building.
And then for a rest and a pint in a fine little pub.
And home we go, aboard Miranda.

Afternoon in Flushing #1

I was very excited earlier to be going to Flushing, and I was not at all disappointed by the day (or afternoon rather) that was had. Me, Jo, Josh, sunshine, signs, little boats, hills, parks, stunning views, scenic cottages and a pint o' cider in a quaint little pub.

Flushing from Falmouth.
We spent some time looking across this way as it turned out there
wasn't a ferry at 1.15 and we had to wait until 2.15.
On board the Flushing Ferry!

 VW campervan for sale!
If you look carefully, you can see the Maritime museum.

One of many views from Flushing.
I loved this boat.

As you can tell, I got bored of writing captions.
And this isn't even all the best photographs - there are
more to come in a second blog!

I just watched Watchmen. Of course, not for the first time! I've seen it several times and the graphic novel is perhaps one of my most favourite of all graphic novels (alongside V for Vendetta and a few Wolverine titles). But I do really love the film.

I love how it is like you are actually watching a graphic novel, it's filmed/produced/whatever technical term so well. I also especially love the soundtrack, not only does it have brilliant songs in it but they are perfect accompaniments to what is going on in each scene etc.

The opening titles are, I think, the best opening titles I've ever seen. Plus, Bob Dylan's The Times They Are a-Changin' is just beautiful.

I'm unable to embed the video but you can watch the titles here:
