Back in July i posted the blog This is just as much your home as is ours… The graffiti in that photo, and other in the building, gave me the idea that it might be good to try and interact … Continue reading
This was a quick capture during the recent Derby Summer Beer Festival It’s always nice to see happy smiling faces…and the beer festival tends to bring about a good few of them. P.T.
