The village park is small and surrounded by tall mature trees. Heavy with Summer foliage they are a backdrop to the narrow town-houses on the square surrounding.
The brown-haired girl in a blue denim jacket picks up a piece of wood and playfully throws it to her dog. A shaggy spaniel in amber and white tones, wearing a red collar.
Abstractedly playing with the dog she appears to scan one of the houses. It has a dark blue door and a brass plate shining brightly to the right side where three steps lead up.
All is quiet at this time of evening and people are having their tea.
She takes out her phone and photographed the house quickly. Then, calling to the dog she makes her way through the heavy iron gate and disappeared. The number three bus drives past.
Next day, only an hour earlier, she returns. Sitting on a stone, she plays with her dog. She does not speak or look at any other person in the park. She watched all that came and went to the blue-door house. She carried an i-pad with her and appears to be settling in for a long wait. Perhaps she is going to video someone or something. Only time will tell.
There are a number of Projects in stream currently. More to be written, later.
