Took this a few years ago when I was walking round Oxford, it just amused me. So after seeing Andy's bike on his blog Eye Candy the other day I felt it needed showing.

Last Saturday morning I drove over to a Builders Merchants in Reading and on the way back I stopped off at a Station to take some photos of it which I had been meaning to for a while. The reason was because this Bridge
Was being replaced because the line is being electrified and the bridge is too low for the overhead cables
While taking the photos I noticed the sky overhead and had to get a photo

Thanks for the support in my last post but I never decided to finish this blog but may miss the odd one as I feel the pressure to post has now been lifted. At the moment I'm thinking of kicking off with a new 365 at the beginning of the new year I hope you will continue to follow.
Back to Monday Mural this week. I took this one 11 months ago on Christmas Eve it's of a series of murals along an Underpass going under the Inner Distribution Road in Reading.
I'll post more of it in due course
Well I've done it I have reached my goal and done my first 365, I started a year ago with this photo of a Town Crier taken in Newbury so today I thought I would do a little seasonal theme with this Raindeer I took at a Garden Center I felt he had such a happy face.
That's it, I'm not sure where to go from here. For the last year I have been juggling up to five blogs which have now dropped to four. It has been quite a strain working out what to post, the A to Z Challenge was problematic but I persevered and came though to finish, next year I should be a bit more organized. I've had nearly 17000 hits and gained a few followers though not as many as I would have liked due to me not enabling the follow me button till most of the way through the year. I'm going to recoup over the next week or so and start off again with another 365 so please excuse me if I miss the odd day. Anyone know any 365 mimes?
Have a peaceful Sunday

Sunrise Over Rutherford
I used to be able to watch the sunrise from my office now I rarely see it but the other morning on my way in the building I saw the sun rising and felt too good an opportunity to miss.

All That Remains
Following on with showing the odd photo from Fairmile where I been recording the redevelopment today I will show you the remains of where the Kitchen used to be.
The place was built sometime in the 1960's so as an addition was on the cards to be removed.

St Mary's Church Cholsey
I'm sorry but this is not the photo I was going to show today, but this evening I had some bad news in that my Friends Mother died last night. The last place she visited was her husbands grave a little to the right of the photo. When I heard this I felt she had gone to say she would be joining him soon. My parents grave and many others she knew are here so she is in good company. I hope her family have the strength to to come through this.
Rest in Peace
The verse is was taken in St Mary the Virgin North Stoke

More Rutherford Skys
After last weeks post of the sunsets of the skys over where I work on the Rutherford site at Diamond Light Source (I might add were taken at the end of October) I could not help but take some of the skys as I came out on my way out to go home.
Home on Thursday showed no wonderful sunset but the moon came out. Have a great weekend.
Today I will show you another photo from Fairmile Hospital which I have been documenting for the last three years.
Two years later the place had taken on a new look

At 11am on the 11th November 1918 hostilities ceased and the first world war ended.
On that day ever since we have remembered the fallen from both the wars. All round the country people will stop work for 2 minuets and stand in silence
