yesterday i posted a picture of the 8 of hearts which i saw on the way to work down by the waterfront.

just over 16 hours later i got out of the car at a hardware shop near where i live and there was a teeny 8 of hearts on the ground. 

what are the chances (and meanings) of that?

these two cards were face down so i flipped them over.


it's always exciting to see a playing card on the floor. i flipped this one over and was mildy disappointed to find it was a score card (aka the extra joker)

having not seen any playing cards in the wild for a while i spotted two lots today about a mile apart. the first lot are here, but it is this one which really interested me.

i spotted it on the floor and used my usual paper kicking technique to flip the card over, but it would not turn. i kicked again and it just skidded down the pavement. one more kick and it flipped in the air but landed back face down. i gave it one more kick to no avail then decided to stop as it was heading for the road.

so i bent down, turned it over, and it was ... the joker !

someone (yrret?) had written their name on the floor in the tate modern in Iraqi war villain playing cards which was nice. it worked quite well in reflection from the mirror ceiling.

it's been a good day for my collections. here are a load of playing cards. unfortunately most of these were too worn out to be identifiable. and i've also made a policy of only including single cards in my complete collection. multiple finds are interesting, but make it too easy to complete the deck

jane spotted this playing card on the ceiling. it was signed by Mike so i suspect it was part of a magician's trick. i haven't got a 4 of spades in my card collection so i was very pleased.

here is the 8 of diamonds. it was outside blaine-in-a-box so maybe it was his.

here is part of a playing card. i don't know which one it was originally so it'll just have to be a spare one in the deck if i ever get the complete set

at the Reading Festival there were lots of playing cards all over the place on the way back to the train. too many to count and archive individually, so here is just once sample shot:

it's not really right to take photos of things at the local rubbish tip.
however, i've decided to start looking for a complete deck.

here are my starters: 2 and 7 of clubs
