It is the season of the year when ‘time’, in one form or another, often impinges on our consciousness – reflections on past occasions and happenings, Christmas festivities, the New Year, plans and wishes for the future etc. The image below seeks to express the passing of time. The material is derived from a newspaper advertisement for Time magazine.
Tine seems to have passed slowly in Blakeney. The scene pictured in the previous post must have looked much the same a century ago. To the left of the harbour photo two ‘crabbers’ are enjoying dangling their lines. At the opposite end of the quay there is a stall selling cockles, mussels, crab and similar delicacies fresh from the sea.
But my attention was drawn particularly to the bicycle pictured above, resting against the railings skirting the quay. Within living memory only the currency has changed!
