Ah Collectormania. A twice annual gathering of scifi fans and fetishists. Every year, Griff and I go and browse. Last time Griff was into Gormiti. Before that it was Doctor Who and a year earlier it was Star Wars. Before that one, the masks scared him and didn't understand that many of the things that looked like toys weren't to be played with.
This time he was into Star Wars again but ditched me to browse on his own. So, it's that time already.
Oh, love the people in costume. I've always been amused by the bad taste of the fake executions set up for photos vowing I'd never do it. But when I went up to the Stormtrooper he barked 'get down rebel scum ... hands on your head'. Without thinking found myself in a fake execution. Jeez. It doesn't take much to turn me into a creature of the spinal cord.

For the last two days I've been chairing a course production meeting. It's not that great having an audience. No fights yet though.

Were they hawking for business or had they just given up the whole lending to people who don't have the means to repay business?

The last meeting of this local car boot sale. A gorgeous autumn day. Griff bought Playstation games. Ariana and Ruth got CDs. I bought fiesta lamps.

Found this sculpture by the Roda Sten gallery. Chatting to the gallery curator I asked about it. It's anonymous, she said, people just add to it. And here I was, taking photos, when I should have been building it.

I love an aimless stroll through a city. Taken over a couple of days.
