car park games

I left the car in the park and ride and walking to the machine to pay spotted the ring on the ground …

picked it up .. and sorry to say rather than carry it on to the bin I placed over the parking lines where they crossed …

had to really ..

noughts and crosses .. anyone for the next move?

Perhaps if you see it  you could move it somewhere else?


rethinking the space

and there is a temporary alteration of car park to entertainment base, a definite hybrid

I know there is a difference in scale, but I am still a little disappointed that this site was not able to host a car or two for the CAR ART PARK project

Currently, this is one of the venues for the Oxford Photography show, and highlighting on film. There was not enough time this week for me to experience this drive-in cinema. Shame really as the experience would fit very well with my project. Your car, your cinema.

But what is the cinema experience like? What about with a car full or is it only really workable for those in the front seats?

How does drive in cinema rank for film going experience? Or is the film really not the thing?

I have a vague memory of going to a drive-in a long, long while ago … just do not remember for certain. Was it in America or possibly, might have been Australia?? But nothing beyond that fuzzy memory. The confusion is compounded as even that hazy image is caught up in the memory of seeing films and TV programs where scenes are set in drive-ins.  But I have never had a bouncy ponytail. Makes the reality of that visit even more less likely – possibly?

Bookending the week … Grey again for the return home on Friday

But yes warm and sunny in between those start and end positions of the week days
Walking across the car park this evening , 7 pigeons, 2 magpies also scouring the ground for treasures. I found a 5p coin, not sure what their pickings were. Perhaps crumbs after lunch remains now most of the cars had departed. Also screeching gulls in the distance. Looking around to locate them I spotted instead the geese flying formation strung across the sky to the south.

The formation in the distance though was quite fluid, not sticking to the arrow shape. If I had had the camera .. (First time in ages without it.. ) The stills shots might have looked like join up the dots puzzles each attempting to make a letter as the shape changed as the group made its way across the sky.
Homewards for me too.
