One of my odd-ball photos: When we’re on the move we tend to stay at hotels belonging to the same chain in France. So every room has a light fitting like this one, not on the ceiling but on the wall beside the bed. The elliptical shape has always fascinated me, together with the fact that it’s angled slightly. This is taken from directly opposite.
The bell from Tinkerbell, a Danish steam locomotive currently undergoing overhaul at Nene Valley Railway, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. Unique for British railways in that it has a steam operated bell, as opposed to a normal whistle. And also because some kind soul occasionally keeps it warm with a furry winter hat complete with ear flaps.
