1 (One)

Happy New Year to you all. Let's hope this is the year we finally get the Tories out of Number 10. I very nearly said cunts out of Number 10 but realised, looking at my watch, we've not yet reached the 9pm watershed.

Talking about numbers, I said a wee while ago that I'd be starting a new photograph feature in '23 - on the first of every month I'll be out and about taking photographs with a theme. Not the most original of features, I grant you, but as I've said on more than one occasion, I leave that sort of stuff to people with bigger brains than me; them's the breaks, I guess. This month, with it being the first of the first, I'm looking for 1s and Ones.

Above is One Thoresby Street, Nottingham. An artistic space since 2008, but looking at the amount of new building works going on around it, I don't know for how much longer.

And below is one I prepared earlier; it's the NG-One nightclub - I love the yellow against the black. So there you have it, something old, something new. If you want to join in I'll give you the theme for February in the comments section (hopefully with more notice than I've given you today - tho' I did send a quick text to the BlogCon 23 WhatsApp group this afternoon).

Alyson pinged this beauty over earlier this evening. She said: ''Went into town and got something I'm happy with. Happy 1st. January!'' Thank you, Alyson.


  1. Ah, your first para is priceless!
    Loving the 1/ones and also that yellow/black combo. Wonder if the same theme crops up inside.
    Look forward to seeing what you have in store for Feb.

    1. Thanks, C! If I put my thinking cap on in time I'll let you know during the last week of Jan.
      As for the colours I couldn't tell you - never been in.

  2. Was looking forward to this new challenge - let's hope others join in as the year goes by. Just shows how diverse the pictures can be based on one theme.

  3. Good idea for a pictorial theme.

  4. I'm up for it John and looking forward to learning February's theme.

    1. Nice one, TS! I'll drop a note here in the comments section next week.
