Last on the card – October

A relief to find this was my last photo taken in October. Not too shabby for taking part in bushboy’s Last on the Card challenge.

The rules as set out by Brian are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for October.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to the post on bushboy’s blog or link in the comments
5. Tag “The Last Photo”

Here’s mine with rule-breaking comments.

It might have been muddy potatoes, or a photo of West Bay, but this time it was a picture of the back of Palmers Brewery by the river. It’s hard to walk past without taking a snap, whatever the weather or time of year.

I love the water wheel, which sometimes turns, and have happy memories of being inside the building with the beery smell as my dad worked there during the 1960s. The outside looks much the same as it did in those days. It’s one of the few breweries with a thatched roof! But you’ll have to take my word for that as you can’t see it from here.

Just the other side of the bridge in the darkness is the weir where Bridport’s two rivers meet for their final mile to the sea. It features in my novel The Chicken Soup Murder, set in 2012, when a boy caught in a flood is in danger of being ‘chopped up like an egg’.

I look forward to seeing the photos you post for ‘Last on the Card’!

  1. ‘Tis a beautiful Last Photo Maria where a bit of context sets the scene beautifully. Forgiven 🙂 There is no time limit as the last photo for the month will always be the last photo so post anytime.
    Thanks for joining in 🙂 🙂

      1. Oh, yes, I am quite excited about it because the skies look clear so far. Also, I reviewed a book ‘The Ghost Train and the Scarlet Moon’ based on a lunar eclipse but it caused a timeslip. I am not going near any train tracks! 🙂

      2. Unfortunately I only saw about a quarter of it because cloud cover came across and blanked it out. The clouds glowed orange-ish so I had to be satisfied with that. If your friends hiked up Mount Coot-tha I think perhaps they may have seen more. Oh well, there is always 2025!
