Gasp! Shock, horror, etc – down again today.

I decided to do my Saturday shopping a day early: note to self, don’t do this unless you can get to Tesco’s early. It’s full of people at 10am on a Friday.

Having survived that, I took myself to Tynemouth for a visit to the Priory (my English Heritage card was complaining about not having enough exercise). I had a play with my 100-400mm lens, wandered a bit, ate the sandwich I’d taken with me, then got a bus back to Newcastle, did a little extra shopping in the Co-op and got the bus home.

Human brains are really good at seeing patterns, especially ones that aren’t really there. When I looked at one of my close up images of the stones of Tynemouth Priory, my brain told me it could see a face. Spooky[1]….

Who's face is that?
