Unworldy folk you can see in Beeston this week

Sitting at a window seat in the Metro Café on Beeston High Road, either a person who has had to wait a little too long for his or her coffee, or an early arrival waiting to celebrate Halloween. I suspect it's the latter.

There was a dog too, looking a little grumpy if you ask me. All he wanted was a walk and a biscuit and, instead, he ends up dead and in a café window. Full marks to Metro. I wonder how many have walked passed and not noticed this enterprising nod.

Beeston Nursery near the railway station also caught my attention with these figures against their front fence. Very PC in more ways than one. Only one woman in red, everyone else is in blue. Is this a hidden message of some sort?

Finally, a poster from a enjoyable temporary exhibition, Alan Kitching and Monotype, in the Bonington Gallery at Nottingham-Trent University's city centre campus which, unfortunately ended yesterday. Two walls of the Gallery were full of posters, including this one, 'Carfree, Carefree' by Abram Games, dated 1967. I asked permission to take this photograph of the poster.
