Path, Street Art and Leonard Cohen

30 Sep

On my way to collect my beloved Beetle from our local garage, I went past a favourite lane, covered in wet Autumn leaves.

Further up the road, I had been told to look out for something that I would enjoy seeing. It was this delightful Dalmation guarding  what at a first quick glance looked like people at the beach. It wasn’t until I came home and zoomed in on the photo that I realised it was Dorothy and her pals at the end of the yellow brick road, a lovely humorous continuation of the yellow line on the road.

For those of my dear Readers who also like Leonard Cohen, I really enjoyed reading about him in The Guardian today in their ‘My Best Shot’ feature. The photographer is Ian Cook and  this is his story.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Lovely post, Sally.
    If /when we come ‘home’ , even if only for a brief visit, I want to walk down that lane! You will be duly roped in as ‘guide’.
    Nice article on Cohen. I first heard him … well on a record … while on holiday in France in the early seventies. Whenever I hear Suzanne it brings back memories of the month I spent there.

      Thank you. I hope you will walk down that lane one day, very happy to be your guide! Lovely memories of your time in France. Interesting how a song can take you right back to when and where you heard it. 😊

    I like that first picture. The avenue of trees. No matter how many times we pass the same place there is always something different … something new to see.

      Yes, we love how that lane changes season by season, even day by day. 😊

    Ah, Leonard! Currently reading “A Theatre for Dreamers” by Polly Samson. Fictional but somehow insightful story of life on Hydra. L. Cohen and Marianne feature. A poetic novel.
