Nice image and rightly deserves to be in monochrome.

It's been nearly thirty years since I was in one of the sledges hurtling down the cobbled paths, at varying speeds-memories.

Malcombe. No longer "cobbled" streets. They have been covered in tarmac. SO now slower. The men have fitted the soles of their shoes with pieces of car tyres for the extra grip and ware.
Tiny2. Nice one. It brings back memories of a couple of good holidays on Madeira. I made a little Video on my wife's little point and shoot camera and at 70+yrs old she was screaming like a little school girl. "HAPPY DAYS"
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.
