Hi Melody, Thanks for the visit & comment. Yes, and we owe that to a local artist who makes ornamental iron/steel gates and other gear..

Nice shot.

You have a great collection of local pictures.

Mark.

Hi Mark, Thanks for another visit. Yes, I try to show that there is more to Nottingham than the Robin Hood legend.

The guy who made the dragon lives in Sneinton, so he's a 'local hero' in my eyes.

Used to pass it quite a lot a few years ago, never thought to stop and take a picture!

I saw the dragon for the 1st time last year during Summer, but when I saw it with the trees in blossom I couldn't resist another go.

Te Blossom does set it off well.

Hi Mark, Yes, it makes him look an absolute pansy!! (but then it could be a female dragon). Some men refer to their wives as 'the dragon'.

Hi studio4t1,

Thanks for the visit and comment.

Irony = authorities making the artist take down the gragon on his gate and then paying him to do one for them............:-) Great shot!!

To wrighty29, I think I may have overstated the case. Having gone into his website, it may not have been the case. Either way, it's worth about £8 to 10k.
