What follows is a few photos I took this afternoon whilst out with my daughter and dog.

1, There is a phenomena that has been sweeping the UK in the last year or so and affecting our working class youth. "Chav" It's not just a fashion thing but also an ingrained attitude. The effects seem worse than bird flu and I sincerely hope it doesn't migrate your way!

Chavs are not particularly known for their artistic nature.but seem to appreciate the art of a slightly older generation.

A little like post-war Berlin, Chavtown is surrounded by a wall. The Chavs have yet to figure a way of getting over it.

Chavs also take a keen interest in the local architecture.

Nice series of shots Syd - I agree about the unfortunatesubject matter but I guess one of thefunctions of photography is to record society, good & bad(of which this is a striking example).

Bring back the Birch, National Service and in this instance,make the little sods clean the walls down (preferably in chain gangsalong with their parents, for all to see).

Then again I'm a bit old fashioned when it comes to disciplining children - strange thing is, I have very succesful and well balanced teenage children.
