101 uses for a long handled broom

This wasn't there for long..it was soon replaced with proper door stops..but it did the job for a time. I was very happy to capture it's brief existence.

101 uses for an office chair

I found myself being resourceful today, the uni does have trolleys, but I didn't want to go looking for one and I knew I would get told off if I carried the water bottle..so I wheeled my chair to the watering hole.

101 uses for a paper bag

I know this is really pushing it..but I was so pleased to capture this moment in Chester, with the Romans stopping to have a lunch break at Chatwins. Here a Roman soldier uses a paper bag as a plate and another one keeps his hands warm tucked in his jerkin.

101 uses for a truck

This is the best thing I have EVER seen, gallopers being built for the Victorian fair in Llandudno. They use the truck as the platform and shelter ... the truck contains everything for the galloper apart from the steam engine and organ, all other parts are beautifully stored in order..each bit in the right place for seamless construction. Perfection.

101 uses for a peg

It was quite windy on the pier in Llandudno, wooden pegs did a great job stopping the jokes blowing into the sea.
