Where would you like to go?

On my drive back from Bristol this evening I took a detour to avoid a traffic jam on the motorway and used it as an opportunity to look out for today??s photo. The light was fading fast so when I spotted this old stone mile post I knew it might well be my last chance before it got completely dark. I love the weathered texture of the stone and the fact that some helpful soul has felt it necessary to come and re-paint the letters to help passing motorists.

      A beautiful B&W which accentuates the texture of this stone. Even on the small roads we cannot get lost: the past takes care on us !

      Charming. If the same helpful soul could have made it just a tad easier to read when driving past at 30 mph at dusk, I'm sure we'd be even more grateful. ;-)

      Actually, I do miss these from the UK. There's something very warm about them.
