Gunmetal

I took myself off to the cinema again....I went to see the senior showing of Boyhood. £3.05 to get in plus coffee & biscuits so you can't go wrong!
I found it interminally long & some did leave after a couple of hours but on the whole I did enjoy it & I had nothing else to do today. It was interesting seeing the same cast over the twelve years it took to make the film
The only thing I got very irritated with was the wimpy lad the main character became...I wanted to gee him up, he was so quiet & dreary.

Three good things:
1. A lovely letter & cutting from The Times sent from @quietpurplehaze all about the bombing of Dresdon by Bomber Command...most interesting....thank you so much Hazel.
2. When I came out of the cinema I went on the beach to take the above photo. On the way home I saw a little ticket tucked in my window wipers. I thought it was a parking ticket but when I looked it was an anominous note saying...' Pat are you staying all night?' I have a very good idea who wrote it but was much relieved it wasn't a parking ticket!
3. Pointless!
Pat, I'm so glad you found the cutting interesting as Ray and I did too. What struck me was the discrepancy in the numbers of dead in Dresden: Goebbels gave it as 250,00 immediately after the raid for propaganda purposes; the article I quoted from the Observer supplement in 1970 was something like 135,000; a study in 2004 came to the conclusion of 25,000.....

@quietpurplehaze Yes Hazel it was most interesting.... Goebbels added a nought the begger! Interesting too that poor old Arthur Harris got the complete cold shoulder for giving the order when in actual fact he was ordered to do so & no one told him to stop! Thank you for sending this Hazel, I will pass it on to my brother to look at....I will then repost back if that is OK Hazel? I value the chats on here too....you do get close to friends on this site......lovely to have so many 'photo' friends! Thanks to you & Ray. X

The sun is going down across this watery scene and casts great light! The dog walker makes it real and interesting! Its not monochrome is it? Good to hear about that film that got so many awards. I wouldn't like to sit for hours though!

@maggiemae No it's still in what is the colour version maggiemae. The b/w version didn't look good. It was 163 minutes long which is a long time! I had heard so much about it I was curious.
