An interesting juxtaposition of church building with the Incredible Hulk’s face.
It’s the Lammas Fair in St Andrews just now. Which means that the shows (the fun fair) are in town and currently blocking up South Street, Church Street and Market Street.
It was an eerie walk to work on Friday and this morning, silently walking in between the closed show stalls, with only the occasional human voice heard in the distance, and the caw of seagulls overhead: the Silence of the Lammas. I felt like I was in an episode of Scooby Doo.
I’m a bit “Bah! Humbug!” when it comes to the shows. Being (mostly) an introvert I honestly can’t see what the excitement is all about with fairground rides. I can’t see anything there that would give me any more excitement than a quiet night in with a good book and a metal CD on the stereo! For me there are better ways to waste my money.
