Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Words that end in “ock”

Dock – not the harbour kind, the plant! This particular plant would appear to be Rumex crispus or Curled Dock and is a variant of Broad-Leaved Dock. The leaves have astringent qualities which if applied to nettle stings help to reduce the irritation. And the good news is that they commonly grow next to each other as is the case in this shot…

Actually, Dock got me thinking and I suddenly remembered Gourock on the Clyde which we visited on a railtour back in August 1986…

Passengers

One of the hazards of transport photography is the Passengers. Yesterday at Hampstead Heath I had to shoot around some passengers who were blissfully unaware of what was happening around them. For example……though this follow-up shot of 66599 with the 4L31 Bristol – Felixstowe intermodal may offer some explanation……Clearly the conversation was more interesting than the passing freight 😉

Mustn’t grumble though as Passengers make for human interest in my transport photographs. This young lady adding some foreground interest as 700054 pulls into Denmark Hill…

And sometimes they provide some humour – For example……Are these guys paying homage to 66150 as she passes with the 6V12 Chelmsford to Acton stone empties?
