1000/705: 17 Jan 2012: Dunmail Park at Night

Did something spontaneous tonight and went to the pictures to see The Iron Lady -must be the first time I've been there for several years. This shot from the car-park is about all I had time for, but it seems to have turned out OK.
I thought the film was excellent, although it did play rather heftily to the Thatcher stereotype and gave no real insight to her time as PM, although it was a wonderful portrait of an elderly , and slightly confused , woman in her waning years. The interplay with the spirit of Denis was very cleverly done in my view.
Not particularly busy - but it was a Tuesday night and Workington is hardly prime Thatcher territory.
