Punishment stocks – City of York.

from my freezer.
The stocks were used as a punishment for crimes of public disorder (drunkenness for example) throughout the 16th and 17th centuries. Their use declined in the 18th century, but probably last used in the UK at the market town of Newcastle Emlyn west Wales in 1872.
The criminal being locked in by legs & hands or hands & head: they were then subjected to ridicule by the local population who threw rotting fruit and in some cases stones at them.
* 1987: so this film is over 30 years old.
Window with bars – N07.
From my Oman files: I found one with mostly straight walls! it’s a problem with these historic forts, there is not always much room, forcing me to use a wider angle lens than I would normally like. It tends to exaggerate the builders imperfections along with those of the lens.

On the subject of trees and Ents.
From my Oman files.
Unfortunately these two trees no longer live, cut down during a redevelopment of the housing complex where I lived when in Oman.
For those who have no idea what an Ent is – see this link from the great encyclopædia in the sky: Ents
A tree – Jebel Shams Oman.
Slight re-work of an old negative from Jebel Shams in Oman. I remember it being a cold and rather foggy morning when I made this.
One of the trees that I loved to visit: it was not giving up, even though about 90% of it was dead. Growing at about 9700ft and had probably been hit by lightning at some time in its life.
