25/05/2023 IT STILL SEEMS A LITTLE ODD FOR TO ME TO BE SHOWING OFF PICTURES DONE FOR MY OWN AMUSEMENT BUT HERE THEY ARE.
Hi Arthur, Shades of Ray…
Shades of Ray Harryhausen in that last image there, a great sense of scale.
I hope all's well!
Hullo Andy, can't see a…
can't see a Harryhausen connection myself.

Hi Arthur, I was thinking of…
I was thinking of Talos, the giant metal statue that comes to life in the Argonauts film ( same source as the skeletons ).
It's a fabulous, timeless image you've created there.
All the Best,

time in the cinema is not misspent.
As a teen I lived at a time and place where it was possible to see a different double feature seven times a week - which I was known to do. Four cinemas, weekly change of programme and something different for Sundays.
Prior to that was 'Saturday morning pictures' - kids programme with organ recital, cartoon. serial and main feature.
Plus sing a long -
" We come along on Saturday morning greeting everybody with a smile.
We come along on Saturday morning knowing it is all worthwhile . . . "
