This poem on a wall in a disused WW2 bunker at Dovercourt seemed a bit classy for graffito, so I checked it out, and it's part of a poem called In the Summer by Syrian poet Nizar Qabbani (1923 - 1998).

I finally got around to buying a s/h Fuji 50mm f/2 WR, having found that the 35mm f/2 WR is indeed weatherproof and actually waterproof. This is the first test, but with an 11mm extension tube. The enlargement is from the top frame and is quite stunning at ISO 1600 on the X-T2.
