ABC WEDNESDAY - S IS FOR SUNRISE ,SUNSET AND SARKOZY




Well it was no stretch of the imagination to envisage this island dweller would have to show a sunset or a sunrise. One of each then. Wanted something else to go with them, not quite so obvious. That's why the cartoon is posted too.

Image one is the sunset shot. It' s taken from the spot that you can see in Tuesday's post, the real working side of Ramsey Harbour. This is the part of the docks where all the ships and boats were built such as the Euterpe, or as it's known to us Ramsey folk "The Star of India."

Image two is a caricature entitled "Entente Incredible". The two figures depicted as Laurel and Hardy are (on the right) the UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown and (on the left) the President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy. That's the odd "S" for today. It's a cartoon by my partner. I dedicate it to Louis, the owner of the best bar in the world, (and the regulars)of the "Up & Down" in Montpellier, France. There is a beer mat behind the bar with a Sarkozy cartoon. My partner drew that too.

Image three is the sunrise shot. Taken from the walkway into town ,looking towards the working side of the harbour and through the bridge. I never tire of photographing the bridge as you've probably noticed!

Well not long now 'til the TT and to the arrival of a very important visitor to the Island, your ABC host Mrs Nesbitt. That makes you a visiting celebrity by the way, Mrs N.

Louis la Vache said...

"Louis" really likes your Sunrise/Sunset idea! Perfect choice for "S" Wednesday and great photos!

iBlowfish said...

That was a cool flare picture for sunset/sunrise. The flare in this case made the picture way more interesting.

Bibi said...

Love your 's' shots--some French people I know would like the Sun to Set on Sarkozy!

Lady Demeter said...

these photos are so amazing! :)
I like them very much.
beautiful captured light rays on the last picture.

VP said...

Smashing shots! I'm going to love getting to know the Isle of Man! And do say hi to Denise from me!

Hyde DP said...

Never heard of Sargozy before so that is something new for me this Wednesday.

mylittlephotonook said...

Fine photos! I also love that one from the Ramsey Harbour.

RuneE said...

Nice caricatures, but I fell for the sunset and sunrise by the bridge(s?)

Humbert Humbert said...

hi bab,
I really like the last one !
by the way, it spells SARKOZY and not SARGOSY which is nice, though ;-)

quinttarantino said...

Great sunset and bridge ... and a very well catched caricature ... guess Gordon will be going with a Flash so Sarko will be alone!

Ida said...

Beautiful - both shots.
It`s the same bridge i guess?

My S

Liz said...

Beautiful shots and what a talented partner you have!

marley said...

Great 'S' post! I like the bridge sunrise and set, but I love the cartoon! It is really good.

Your better half should have a cartoon blog. I know he does them for papers etc and gets paid but he could show past drawings.

Jackie said...

I love the second photo - really stunning.

I think your partner has captured Sarko perfectly too!

babooshka said...

Good point Marley,

BARKERBITESBACK! on the links list is his blog.
