Just a few photos to round off the week…

We discovered this little “abandoned” railway station a couple of weeks ago while we were out walking with my parents, and I made a mental note to come back and take some photos. It’s not technically “abandoned” (it just looks it) – it’s the home of a little tourist railway that runs along the river to the weir you just see in the background of the photo above. And it was all Autumnal and pretty, so even although my nose was redder than Rudolph’s by the time we left, it was still worth a quick visit.

“Never play on the railway tracks,” my mum always told me. Whoops.

(It’s OK, mum, the train wasn’t running at the time.)

(Still, don’t try this at home, kids…)

“And when a train goes by, it’s such a sad sound…”
(Sorry, I came over all emo, there…)

Rubinman: intrepid explorer.

Hope everyone has a good weekend! I will be wearing my lame-ass Halloween “costume”, and reassuring myself with the fact that everyone will be too busy looking at Terry to notice me anyway. What will you be doing?

    1. I actually hadn’t even seen the train until a couple of weeks ago – I had started to believe it was an urban myth! It is a lovely area, though, I run through it quite a lot!

  1. Very nice handbag! Looks quite Mulberry to me.

    For some reason if I look at your blog using Firefox, I can only see the Marilyn Monroe entry with lots and lost of white above it, the last two posts are missing. On Internet Explorer everything looks ok. Strange.

  2. Amber I have no idea how you make “the ‘ston” look like such a romantic and beautiful place!? I have worked there for 9 months and can find nothing nice about it at all! Love the boots 🙂

    1. To tell the truth, it’s taken me many years to find anything to like about it either – in fact, it was really only this summer when I started exploring on foot that I discovered a few little random spots of beauty: they are very well hidden, though! If you were just working here, or driving through, all you’d ever see would be a late-60s, grey, urban sprawl!

  3. love these photos, and your outfit, especially the way your hair goes with the boots and bag (btw, where’s the bag from?)

  4. These photos are so beautiful!! You are the face of autumn! Those boots, the coat, ahh love it!
    And the last photo with the little waterfall is so cute!
    Have a great weekend too! 🙂

  5. Don’t worry, your “train goes by” comment was a Smiths quote (from Nowhere Fast – Meat Is Murder album), and as such, safely predates anything emo… 😉
