Happy May Day!

05 Be still like a mountain and flow like a great river, at the Old Bottling Works, Malvern well dressing 05-15

The theme for this year’s well dressing in Malvern is River of Life. I went for a walk, visited a dozen wells, and took some photos. The standard of competition entries by both children’s groups and adults was good, as ever, but some installations were difficult to cap so my photos don’t show all of them to their best advantage.

Report at my journal, with ten small images.

Worcester, built across the River Severn near its confluence with the River Teme, flooded on two separate occasions last winter. I thought some photos might have a cooling and soothing effect on anyone currently caught in a heatwave.

Enjoy!

Having been challenged to get high in Worcester, but without the energy to climb the cathedral tower, I attempted to scale the city centre multi-storey car park via a strenuous ascent of the East Face from my base camp in the underground bus station.

Report @ my journal with 12 images from two visits.

I decided to perform another walk prospecting for gold, but on the Welsh side of the River Severn in St John's, Worcester. I didn't expect to find as much interesting gold as in the city centre but I was very mistaken. Report @ my journal (with 8 small images).

I was challenged to go prospecting for gold in Worcester, to make me see familiar surroundings in new ways, with my starting point determined by my position when I'd finished the errands that brought me into the city. Alas, there is no mechanism under English law to stake a claim to other people's shiny stuff so I contented myself with taking photos. 8 small images with commentary at my journal. Enjoy!

I went for a second walk in Worcester as another II(a) for the June challenge. This time I began on the west or "Welsh" side of the River Severn in St John's (aka Bedwardine), south of the railway, with the intention of walking west along the south side of the railway to the point where the main road, aka A44 the Bromyard Road, crosses north under the railway at more or less the outer edge of the city then crossing to the north side of the railway and walking back to my starting point. It'd be about 3km as the crow flies but city streets and flaneurs tend to wander much more than figurative crows.

Report at my journal with 15 small images.

I went for a walk in Worcester as II(a) of the June challenge. I began on the east side of the River Severn, south of the Worcester viaduct, with the intention of walking east along the south side of the railway until after the lines split then walking north crossing to the north side and walking back to my starting point. I chose to attempt the longest track-side variation of this route because I also wanted to visit both of the city's stations. It'd be about 4km as the crow flies but city streets and flaneurs tend to wander much more than figurative crows. My route also included height variation of 50m between the lowest point by the river and the highest point of Rose Avenue in Tolladine.

Report with 17 small images (at my journal). As ever, feel free to ignore the commentary and enjoy the pictures. :-)

It rained so I wandered around inside Worcester Cathedral. That's what ambulatorys were designed for after all. Report with twelve small images (@ my journal).

Get hold of a current pub, bar, or restaurant guide for your chosen city. Choose an establishment at random, and navigate there from your home or workplace using any method you like. (Entering the establishment and having a drink/snack/meal is encouraged but not required.)

Report with photos at my journal.

Get on the first bus that comes along. While travelling on the bus, look out of the window until you see something interesting. Get off at the next stop, go back, and thoroughly investigate the interesting thing.

My report is here, with two photos.
