Thank you for the splendidly creative answers given to my ‘holiday photograph 1’ conundrum. The suggestions given have, I’m sure, drawn many an admiring glance from other commenter-box attenders.

The signs are in fact from the interior of one of the ‘pods’ (or ‘capsules’, if you will) of the Yorkshire Wheel at the National Railway Museum in York. The notices, one assumes, illustrate the capsule-commandments: Thou shalt not kick, Thou shalt not punch, Thou shalt not lean. (I did in fact reverse the image as I think the leaning sign works best as the third, but anyone looking into a pod from the outside (from an aeroplane, for example) would indeed see the signs as I posted them.)

The Yorkshire Wheel is well worth going to see if you are in York with six spare pounds (the National Railway Museum is free which makes the combined experience very reasonable in my opinion). The wheel is apparently half the height of the London Eye but cost one tenth of the amount to build. It goes faster than the London one and (when we went at least) each group or couple got a pod to themselves meaning that there was ample space to kick, punch or lean had the signage not prohibited it.

I have put some of my Yorkshire Wheel photos into a smörgåsbord-like arrangement below, thereby disguising the fact that individually they are mostly some combination of a bit blurry, rather overcast and/or quite badly composed.

Health update. Still feeling rather wiped out. Wandered out to the garage earlier, a distance of 25 meters, with a similar length of return journey. Nearly finished me off. Just hope I’m going to recover in time for Greenbelt.
