Looking for Colour and the Pull of UWE

Another grey day over Bath with definite showers when I went out for a short walk with Bella.
Looking for splashes of colour to relieve the grey, I was startled to see this neighbour's newly painted front door. I was also taken by the horse statue in next door's front window.
Turning round to the opposite terrace, this neighbour's lime green door looked positively tame by comparison. 
I liked the bark on this rubber tree.
Bright flowers on a windowsill. 
After walking Bella, it was into the car and off to UWE for the first time in over 6 months. Passed this gnomic inscription on a path - I think it may be connected with the surveying module in our Faculty.
A grand display of Virginia creeper up the side of Q Block. 
A new plaque has appeared over the Summer. I don't know quite what kind of partnerships are involved.
Met with quite a few of my 14 Information Systems dissertation students (not too many to chase up about a quarter of their final year's work…), and passed this abandoned glove on the way out of the building.
Multicoloured poles outside N Block. 
On the way back home, sitting at these traffic lights once more. 
Coming down the hill to home, I was struck by these trees at their autumnal best.
Still clouds in the sky over Solsbury, but some hope of clearer skies for tomorrow. 
This day a year ago, I was down at Abbey Square buying tickets for the forthcoming Bath Film festival showings we wanted to see. The festival is a bit later this year so tickets aren't yet on sale.
When We Were Young(er) we went to Chania on Crete in June 1993. The temperatures were 40ยบ+C, so we spent a lot of time at this beach sitting in the sea listening to classical music and having drinks brought out to us - it was hard:-)!
