The state of Texas released on November 15th and I have been very busy driving in American Truck Simulator since then to help with the community event and to bring my in-game achievements back up to date. There’s been a lot of driving…๐Ÿ˜ฅ However, this afternoon I completed the last delivery for the final outstanding achievement – I can relax once more and take part in Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘

Let’s start with a Castle – Or, as it’s in Spain, a Castillo…

Castillo Sohail

…Castillo Sohail which, of course, has battlements…

Castillo Sohail

…on its curtain wall between the towers.

A different Castle – Castle Cement tanks…

…forming a Churchyard Sidings to Ketton Ward Siding service and photographed at Silkstream Junction.

Here’s a Renault…

…Delivering Cement or Concrete (Words seem to be used interchangeably!)

Here’s a traditional Bristol bus operated by Hants and Dorset…

Finally – A Wagtail on the Football Pitch!..

New month and time to join in with Brian’s Last on the Card Challenge.

On the Canon EOS 5D mkIII we don’t have the usual football shot. Instead, it’s a shot-to-nothing at St. Pancras on the way home from a match at Uxbridge…

Last on Card Canon_OCT22

…Taken on the 29th, there were a lot of people on their way to Halloween events. I haven’t decided yet whether there is an image here that I want to use ๐Ÿ˜

The Last on Card for the Fujifilm X-Pro2 is almost as I want the shot…

Last on Card Fuji_Oct22

…In fact, all it needed was a slight straighten! ๐Ÿ‘ Taken on Halloween itself, it shows an eastbound District Line service at South Kensington.

Moving on to the Moto g50. When I popped down the road to the corner shop on October 23rd, I just happened to find the change of watch checks being done at the Fire Station…

Last on Card_g50_OCT22

…The Sirens, lights and all the equipment are checked at the start of each watch and any shortfall or issues made good. If there is an issue that can’t be fixed, the appliance will have to be taken offline. This shot needs to be cropped a bit ๐Ÿ˜Ž

All photos as taken but resized for the web.

Two R’s… I did think about a close-up of our late Queen’s Royal Cypher – EIIR – but thought that might have been a bit too cheeky๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway, let’s get on with participating in Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge. All these photos were taken yesterday in London๐Ÿ‘

Here’s an obvious double R – Harrods…

Another double R is Farringdon – you’ve seen lots of shots from this station in the past, so here’s a Chiaroscuro effort for a change…

Stations have an Arrivals Board – this one is on Blackfriars Station…

Arrivals Board

…And just outside the station is The Black Friar…

…Photo-bombed by a Pigeon๐Ÿ˜‚

There’s always people going about their work in London. Delivering barrels of beer to The Founders Arms…

Beer Delivery

…or using a wheelbarrow to move bags of cement across Trafalgar Square…

Wheelbarrow

…and they’re clearing the fallen leaves in Green Park – here’s one of the Tractors…

Kubota M5

…Of course, with all that work going on, someone has to stop it – here’s the Protesters on Whitehall…

Just Stop Oil

In central London there are many bridges. This one is Hungerford Bridge…

Hungerford Bridge

…which carries trains from Charing Cross over the river to destinations in Kent and Sussex. I’ve mentioned the River, so here it is…

River Thames

…the River Thames in all its murky glory with an outgoing tide.
