I looked up bell bollards and found they're made that way to deflect the tyres of heavy goods vehicles. This is a rather boring reason.smiley - sadface I'd fancied something more romantic.

More interesting is the shadow of the observer -Cactuscafe herself, perhaps?

heheh the shadow is me.

There are a few bell bollards in Brighton. They look rather good close up. You don't believe me? heheh. This one is in Rottingdean.

What is most interesting is that I didn't take this photo in black and white....

So congrats to Post Ed ? smiley - thepost who has secretly collaborated here to make it look very monochrome posh indeed! Thanks Mister!

Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

That could have been my shadow, if light wasn't as fast as it is. I was there, walking the South Downs way. (OK it would have to be really slow light, as that was probably 28-ish years ago)

Come to think of it, this Post issue has a lot of Easter Egg researchers (bobstafford mirrored in the window, SashaQ visible behind the roses, this shadow…)
I'll check if I can find some more.

Can we start to call these things Bellards, or is that too close to billiards? (try to hit two bollards with one car in one go...)

I must now go on an Easter Egg Researcher hunt. smiley - rofl

Bellards. smiley - rofl I like it.

Imagine if that was your shadow, Caiman, when you were there, 28 years ago. That would be an interesting story. Like, a photo gets sort of frozen in time, and comes out way later.

Thanks Sasha! Dmitri made it black and white, so it was a double act.

I will go and see my old scrapbook. Maybe I have captured myself there and then. (small chance, with analog photograpy, where photos still cost money with every attempt).
