Today is Bob Dylan's 70th birthday and as I write this late at night I'm listening to an excellent tribute programme on BBC 6 Music presented by Gideon Coe - he's playing Tangled Up In Blue right now.
Earlier today I heard the lovely Lauren Laverne (also on 6 Music) say she was celebrating the birth of His Bobness by referring to real life things but using Dylan lyrics. For example, when she returned home after the show on the tube as usual (She actually does - respect!), perhaps listening to her iPod, she was going to call it "riding on the chrome horse with her diplomat" (a line from Like A Rolling Stone).
In the same spirit, I am naming this shot, taken in the cemetery over the road, after one of his classic songs.
I have been out of the loop for a couple of days and catching up with a myriad of things today. I meant to back-blip in sequence, but I thought this blip should be made on the right day.
