It could be almost anywhere in the UK, but the fact is that it is somewhere. Somewhere unique and which physically exists.
Unless I dreamt it.
In which case, you must be imagining a a view of Another Ordinary Street.
Wouldn't it be strange if we imagine the same features in our imaginary street??

I realise that I've probably been conditioned by too many DailMail Elf'n'Safety scare stories, but this baby carriage looks rather dangerous to me.

Unlike yesterday's slide, this is one location I can identify.
It's the leafy suburb of Allenton, on the patch of coastline called The Derbyshire Riviera.
The exact location if from the Spider Island, looking west, and you can just see the golden M of Derbyshire's only MacDonalds in the distance.

Oh Gosh. This bring back memories.
Just yesterday, a work colleague was telling me of her weekend visiting her sister and her newborn, and "here's a couple of pictures of the little darlin'. "
Sorry Missy, but I have virtually zero interest in your children, let alone your freshly ejected nieces or nephews.
Top Tip Ladies - Men aren't interested in other people's kids. Even their own kids aren't really worth the effort.

If there's one thing I've learned from being The Slide Guy, it's that Americans Love Photographing Fish. And Parades. If there was a street parade of anglers and their catches, then Kodak would still be in business.
I wonder if the neighbours enjoyed seeing the slides of fish and parades as much as the photographer.

I dare say that there is someone, somewhere who could identify these mothballed ships.
They might not even need the enlargement section also attached ("US Navy E 775"?)
But they certainly look like creepy ghost ships, to me.
Bonus 1 - The Daily Mail knows the stories that interest their readers.
Bonus 2 - You can get Camouflaged Baby Coffins in the US....

Who knows the secret of the Hotel Bed?
Is is related to the Bed Head? Or is it the Bedside Table?

No idea where this is but from the mountains in the background, I'm guessing it's not The Netherlands.
Bonus - Hmmm. Another Mass Shooting in the USA. Las Vegas, 58 people dead. One Shooter.
1. How it should be reported does not match with the reality.
2. The Stats are, predictably, utterly depressing. (Interesting resource.)

No wonder. Having found the downstairs closet blocked by some horrid, coiled, brown monster, Mildred's needle-sharp stare is focused on the presumed guilty party. Mrs Ethel Grosshammer. Damn her.

Last day of my holiday, and so far achieved 3 of the 47 things on my "To Do" list. And I'm not really sure I should personally claim the credit for the England Cricket Team win.
So, here's a minimum effort slide posting. The slide says "Hyacinthus Bosio 1769-1845" so you're right in thinking it's in the style of François Joseph Bosio
Bonus - The Magic of Dragons

Obviously there story of the The Four Bells of Santa Maria is well known to one and all, but this view is not the view that most pilgrims see.
This is from inside the mausoleum, and is rarely accessible nowadays (due to The Littlejohn Effect).
So, enjoy this view.
Bonus - Half-Drag

A production still for the NBC TV programme "On The Trail with Carlos"
The premise was that Carlos Castignada would drive over some of the forgotten mountain passes in The Rockies. On his travels, Carlos would sing to his canine companions Cuddles (left) and Spongmonkey (on the hood of the pick-up.)
The series lasted one season, and would have continued to a second, except for the loss of Carlos on the Shelton Trail. It seems Carlos suffered a heart attack, but even in death, Carlos tried to keep Cuddles and Spongmonkey alive. Alas, they only survived a new weeks, sustained by ... well, you can guess.
Bonus - WTF Amazon? And there's more! A bit more info
Bonus 2 - Just to wipe that from your mind THIS is how to open a show.

Some slides just sing out to me, and this is one of them.
Often, it's just a matter of a close inspection of the details - for example the slightly loose swimsuit (roll on the arrival of lycra), the slightly goofy expression, the ever-present cigarette, the folded wheelchair in the background, the possible caravan / mobile home location, etc.
In fact, with a bit of a clean-up, this might be a candidate for the 2018 Slide Guy calendar.

I'm just back from a few days away. Having visited the UK City of Culture 2017, I'm now ready to share my pictures of the tourist mecca that is Kingston-upon-Hull Marina.
And the opinion is.... Meh.
It was OK. Clearly the subject of much regeneration money, it's still rather shabby in places.
So, today's slide shares one important feature with Hull - Water. However, while Hull has brown water, here Belle poses beside blue water.
Bonus - Continuing the water theme ... Yikes !

Another visit to Sid's Wedding - one of the most inept sets of slides I have. This is why lightmeters were invented folks.
Tho' I will admit that maybe Sid married his bride in a cave, due to he ugliness.
NB : playing with lighting settings doesn't help much.
