Max Colson: Tales

A few hiccups, but all in all a rather patriotic weekend

with 2 comments

Several weeks ago, just as the Diamond Jubilee weekend came into joyous but rather rainy fruition, I made my way down to the South West of England to an area largely controlled by the Ministry of Defence (this area is specifically dedicated to the training and study of tanks and tank warfare).

Whilst the nation mostly glued themselves to the TV screens and watched the pageant float down the Thames in bouyant style, I was intrigued with what kind of Britain I might see around an area so tied up with the Defence of our glorious realm. Here are some pictures of some of the things I saw:

  1. Hello Max. I like the first picture very very much. It is so surrealistic for me. I also like the fourth and the thirteenth one. I am looking forward to seeing more…..

  2. Thanks Christina – it’s definitely been a strange period for our country. It’s not over yet either as the Olympics are just around the corner. Time to get the flags out some more!

    I hope all is well with you? How is your work going?
