Picture of the Day: Down Tools - Swaffam, UK [2017]

I try not to take arty photographs because snobbery. Anyone can point  a camera, hold it correctly, frame the view and press the button. They  can even apply filters if they want. Its not exactly difficult like  smooth shadework, mixing oil colours or sculpting from clay. But every  so often I see something that shows Run Down Britain and out comes the  David Bailey in me. 

Here we are in Swaffam in Norfolk in 2017. I  took this to convert into an amusing post-ironic-postcard to send to an  arty friend of mine. It is clear that the vans have not moved in many  years. I wonder what the drivers were thinking as they parked them up  for the last time.
