MEN NOT AT WORK!

In the 5 years I've lived in Ramsey, this is the first time the bridge has had a new lick of paint. Don't panic Stephen, it's the same rich red and white colour scheme, just a glossy new coat for the old lady. Where then are the painters? The cones have appeared to cordon the rails off to the right, but no men at work to be found. Perhaps they have sloped off to the Laxey Blues Festival that has just got underway or been kidnapped by aliens? Perhaps they just saw the mad woman photographer and took flight. Who knows? One thing I do know though is the cones are on the wrong side! The freshly painted left side should have been cordoned off. Perhaps this was their little joke. Lots of left white gloss painted hands in Ramsey this week. Very manx.

As I mentioned above, the Laxey Blues Festival is this weekend. Local and international bands take over the town and simply play music from around noon until the early hours. Me and my camera will be there. I will try an capture an image, but I may just forget and enjoy the music.

Hi, Babooshka! I like this photo and its irony of the cones...or devlishness! Been out of town a couple of days, but just to say I like your photo of the oyster catchers, too!

Laxey Blues Festival is the best.
This doesn't look like Ramsey.
You've made it look bigger.
Very good photograph.

What is the building at the end of the bridge? Is it new?

Sounds like typical work men. No where to be seen but the cones are out!

At least it gets painted. Nice shadows and contrast through the rails.

Very nice photos on your blog! :) I hope you have a great time at the blues festival...wish I could join you. My husband and I enjoy music, esp. jazz and blues now. I'm happy to join the Sky Watch crew. Also, posted another duck shot for you though it is not close up. :)

They may be camera shy but I suspect you'll find them at the pub.

This is a marvelous look down the bridge to the houses on the hill beyond. I like the black and white too. Those cones look better.

I think I see you pattern of images.
It is very different from yesterday. The wide angle, did you crop or not? The rails really lead you in. Very cinematic. Keep it up.
