Velvet Bottom




My husband photographs the night sky with special cameras.   

To get away from people and city lights he drives for an hour, to Velvet Bottom.

Last night when he returned  from a visit to Velvet Bottom I asked how it went:

Well, it was ok to begin with but then four young guys in a car turned up hunting rabbits with torches, they thought I was the police then they decided I wasn’t so they came up and asked if I’d seen any police, then they went off. Half an hour later another two men turned up – to hunt with hawks so I had to chat to them, then they went away. Then the police turned up.

  1. The Velvet Bottom sounds like a place with a cover charge and two drink minimum!

  3. Rabbets and hawks and police and a photographer. Sounds like the beginning of a melodrama with a plot twist.
