I wouldn't, usually, be seen dead at a real-live comic con, but Wakefield's first ever such event held the tantalising possibility of mingling with one of my own heroes, the extraordinarily talented actor and impressionist Chris Barrie.

The Gallery ... Buildings

I'm joining in with The Gallery this week and the theme is Buildings ...

By lucky hap not many weeks ago I visited London where there is lots and lots and lots of buildings.

There's The Shard, famously Western Europe's tallest building, though just a short walk away is the  reconstruction of Shakespeare's, arguably more famous and inspiring, Globe Theatre.
