Scenes from the Longest Crawl

The Longest Crawl by Ian Marchant; Mono Photography by Paul Williams

I’ve posted black and white images from the April 2005 Longest Crawl roadtrip here before. Here are more, images that never made into Ian Marchant’s The Longest Crawl The Longest Crawl by Ian Marchant; Mono Photography by Paul Williams.
As we journeyed from one end of the country to the other it seemed I had no other purpose; image after image, a thousand or more.
I can see no particular theme or thread except perhaps the obsessive repeated observation that the world is full of shapes.

Paul Mason's Secondhand Shop.

Bookends Secondhand Bookshop Cardigan

Another of Cardigan’s little gems, Paul Mason’s Bookends, has a simple pricing policy (paperbacks £1 and hardbacks £2), a very attractive and varied stock, AND serves tea and coffee.

There’s always going to be something intriguing about  a shop at the end of an alley, particularly one where the proprietor and his assistant are sitting outside eating blueberries and peas from the pod.

And, if you visit this week, you’ll see day by day creation of a new vibrant mural by Tom Goldstone.

You could, as I did, buy a book too.
