This needs a little explanation. It's a poster in Tel Aviv airport. The writing, in hebrew says "I'm also a Duty Freak", with "Duty Freak" transliterated into the hebrew. Only. In hebrew, there are frequently no vowels, as here. Also, an "F" sound turns into a "P" sound with the addition of one of those dots that aren't there. So, in an alternative universe this poster has the (hipster?) proclaiming "I, too, am a Duty Prick"
Or Dutty Prick? Would seem to make a bit more sense than Duty.

Or a post-modern example of the Christian appropriation of pagan sacred sites. Or something like that. Maybe vice versa.

Just married, and already she's knitted him a bike cosy.

I saw this building in a field on the Avon Cycleway audax yesterday and stopped to investigate. Unfortunately I couldn't get any closer without trampling on the maize. I'm not sure if it used to be a windmill or maybe a storage of some sort or what. There is a a rectangular single-storey building completely enveloped in bushes behind it and at some point the tower has had an electricity connection.

Who lives here? Let's open the arched door and see if anyone's in.

Someone's deceased was fond of strawberries, cheese, bread and beer. Pretty good, I'd be happy for that as a mourners' feast at my funeral

Either that or the local cider-swilling teenagers are a bit classy.

I'm slightly confused by the bonsai pot amongst all that, or was it being used as an ashtray?  Looks like a decent quality pot as well - I have a few trees that would fit it.

It's a big chair. In a shop window next to a manneqin wearing a fur coat (whether vrai or faux fur I couldn't tell you)

That's slightly disturbing. The fish in the background do nothing to relieve this.

Looks as if it has a matchstick in it. I wouldn't have known it was intended for bonsai. Whether they did, who can say?

I dunno if they are fish. The white things are polar bears.
ETA, the other things are snowy fir trees.
