I am always very proud when I see one of Alan’s photographs being used by a third party.

the photo is taken from Gosport, which is the town where I grew up – and the Spinnaker Tower is in the city of Portsmouth… which was the last place Alan and I lived in before emigrating to Lanzarote

Brilliant, Alan. Why didn’t I think of photographing it from there?
Possibly becasue I’d given up trying to park in Gosport…

1. Mis-spelled ‘because’.
2. Voted for my post, thinking I was voting for the picture.

Mike – I had to give your comment a “thumbs up” – it really made me chuckle! Yes, parking in Gosport… hmmm, stuff of horror movies!

Made worse for me last time becaiuse I was driving a long wheelbase white van. But I managed in the end, and even found Peter Grout’s bike shop before I took the ferry to go and look at the Spinnaker shopping precinct.

This is a fantastic picture or Spinnaker Tower! It’s close to the hotel where I work, but I don’t think I have ever seen it from this angle. Good shot— Stephanie
