Photographer's Note

I was wandering aimlessly around the Pavilion Gardens, Buxton and not far from the Opera House, with some TE friends when I spied these two rather odd gentlemen who appeared to be having a conversation. Or, at least, the guy on the right appeared to be talking quite loudly and passionately while the chap on the left seemed intent on reading his newspaper and totally ignoring him. I managed to get a couple of quick shots before I was "clocked" by the verbose man on the right who then looked at me very disapprovingly and walked away. How very strange.

For those interested, the tree on the left had required felling but the local council had taken the opportunity of having a wood carver transform the sizeable stump into a twelve foot carving consisting of images of British wildlife in its upper part and, in its lower part, scenes depicting the heritage and history of Buxton. You can read about that here and the local wood carver was Andrew Frost.

You can see a larger version of this picture on "beta" TE here.
