Lindisfarne Castle under the lovely sunlight as it sets over the horizon.
Just been away for a long weekend around Northumberland and the Borders so expect a few photo’s over the next few days as I slowly process and pick out any pictures that I think aren’t terrible.
The first picture is of Alnwick Castle as that was where our first B&B is, not sure where one of the statues has nipped off too?
The fact that anyone can be labeled a slut, at any time, with any level of sexual activity under their belt, and the fact that sluttiness is a moving target, makes it clear that slut-shaming isn’t just about controlling how much sex women have. If you can be called a slut without so much as kissing another person, then it stands to reason that your slut status must be based on something besides your level of sexual experience or activity. And often, it is. It’s based on what people assume about you just by looking at you - at your body, your clothes and the way you move through the world. Once you realize that, it becomes obvious that the slut label isn’t just about controlling how much sex women have: It’s about controlling how we dress, how we walk, how we talk, how we dance, how much we drink, who we talk to, how we feel about our own desires and so on and so on. And crossing the invisible, culturally-determined “slut line” in any of these arenas is enough to earn you a label that, no matter how much we denounce and detest it, no matter how well we understand its purpose and its perniciousness, somehow manages to seep into our brains and eat away at our certainty and self-assurance.

The set from The Onion Club present My Funny Valentine last night at Redd, Dundee.
Had a wander around Dundee after the footie as wanted to get out the flat for a bit, took lots of pictures of textures, shapes, and just stuff. Just experimenting really.
I have no idea what this plant is but I like the colour in the first and the focus in the second image.
Dundee from the other side of the Tay from this evening. Was getting windy so a lot of my shots are blurry, think I just about got away with this one. Will have to return on a calmer day.
