I do like to over deliver..
If I’d been around in Dickensian times you could have charted my progress through the city streets by the cries of grateful poorfolk as I doffed my cap dispensing pickled walnuts, poems written on beer mats and the occasional thruppenny bit…
” Thankee kindly Mr Shpics sir…”
” You’re a gentleman Mr Shpics and no mistake…”
” Generous to a fault ‘e is that Mr Shpics, why only yesterday he gave me and the poor wee mite a handful of spent matches and a turkish delight..”
Yes….. It would have been wonderful to have known me..
Unfortunately for you dear reader, in this digital age my generosity is limited to being free and easy with my pixels…so, I hope a digital back-hander of daisies will suffice.
And..If not…Poppies again!
(Hope this one’s not too corny for ya)….
The top shot was taken on the windy little switchback road (think mini roller-coaster) between Galera and Cortijo Del Cura..I had just collapsed on the verge after cycling for a whole seven minutes…30 degrees in the shade and I get onto a push bike for the first time in thirty years…(There’s no fool like an old fool).
The second was on the road from Huescar to San Clemente…..Shot from the airconditioned cocoon of the SHpics fun-bus….Why suffer for your Art?
