    The use of black and white make these pictures look so
    awesome!! There are three that I just keep looking at and
    two of them I have not been able to figure out yet. I
    always enjoy reviewing your pictures because they are so
    clear and bright but these are so different. I will be
    spending some time looking at these pictures.

    Reminds me of that old movie,Haunting of Hill House
    with Julie Harris. Hope you weren’t having a similar
    experience. Good to hear from you.

    Where have I been? I write a daily humor column for my local newspaper. The other day I wrote on T.V. hosts and presenters. I gently made fun of Wink and Pat. Then my life was changed: I discovered BBCAmerica and “Cash in the Attic.” So what’s so great about CIA? A. Appleton. I have found your site, and am bowled over by your gifts. I won’t run a retractiion, but I will bring you to my readers’ attention. Besides, I think I’m in love.

    Reminds me of that old movie with Julie Harris, The
    Haunting. Hope your experience was more pleasant than
    hers was in the movie.

    The pics are great, as they usually are here, but why not give visitors
    the click-to-enlarge option?

    The use of black and white make these pictures look so
    awesome. After a week I am still trying to figure out
    three of the pictures. I have spent probably a good 20
    minutes on each picture letting my imagination on those
    three pictures go wild which has probably stimulated
    my brain for the first time in a long time.
    Your pictures that you post are always stimulating and
    allows us to think about things.

    This is the first time for me to open your blog, since I love your show in BBC Prime. Here in Geneva, Switzerland, I can see it in the weekend, on Sunday, right after I woke up, having my tea, and rushing straight away to prepare myself to attend mass in my beloved church. Well, I was so surprised to find out that you are gay. Well, for what ever sex orientation one has, it does not really matter. But, as a gay myself, to find someone who could present this “cash in the attic” brillianty, I feel proud of you. Just a short annecdote, that the gay friends found me very affirmative (je ne sais pas comment le dire en anglais… pardon moi), since I don’t have a gay look stereotype coming from the society. That perhaps is my feeling when I found you a gay.

    Well, done. I have not seen all the things in this blog, but il will check it once I have time. Sorry, I have to rush since I have a meeting now. Cheers.

    OK, so this sounds strange… I checked out these pictures a few days back, had a giggle – thinking ‘been there, done that’.. then last night I had a dream in which I was drunk (very peculiar sensation!) and you were there Alistair – so thanks for propping me up & holding my hair back when it all got too much & the booze came back to haunt me.

    Weirdly though, this morning I woke up (sober, of course) and felt like I’d been on an all-night binge: all of the punishment & none of the fun!

    Should you ever find yourself drunk and disorderly Alistair, I promise to do the same for you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Keep up the great writing (I’m envious of your skills of reflection) and the awesome photos,

    Val sensed it – a paned approach screaming a paranormal pairing of Shirley Jackson’s classic novel The Haunting of Hill House with David Lynch’s tipsy twist.

    A paned premonitional and paradoxical pairing of Shirley Jackson’s classic The Haunting of Hill House with a David Lynch approachable panoply.

    Shirley Jackson meets David Lynch. ‘Approach’ is a paradoxically paned phantasmagoria. A pell-mell, yet fascinating pastiche/panoply. A piercing peek into possibly the preeminate 21st Century British photojournalist-panjamdrum. A palatable and palpable philtre. Brilliant! Phenomenal!

    Right then – an inebriated shutterbug.

    Your Ghastliness! Pertaining to my comment (#15) above, please excuse my erroneous spelling [preeminate] of preeminent. I sometimes spell like I speak (Hoosier twang). Number all comments in this entry #13.
