AGES AGO. (19/10/12)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA    This was the view this morning……the murk lasted till lunchtime.

Now I could have a good rant but really I can’t rake up any enthusiasm. Dithery is not so  dithery now but has wandered into a fantasy world of cheap energy, even his ministers were confused. MPs appear to have their noses in the trough again.

I have been sorting thousands of images and came across these from four years ago.

A brighter slant on the world.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         House of Knowledge by Jaume Plensa. This was taken in Chatsworth Park. The sculpture is now residing in Antibes. It looks better there. It can be seen in all it’s glory here at EAGLETON NOTES and here at SYNFLAME. It looks magical at night.

Howden reflections Reflections in Howden reservoir. Taken the same morning.

That’s all for today, Have a great weekend.

  2. It's been grey, dismal and wet all day here too Adrian, been sorting through images all day, and they don't improve with the looking!

    Had a good chuckle at that sign, a good place to build sand castles, no doubt, as long as you don't dig too deep!!

    Fantastic sculpture, any idea what it's made from? Looks good with lights...[;o)

    1. I think it's steel and TIG welded. I did give it a tap but was undecided.

  3. I can see a few short words in the sculpture, probably coincidental. but it left me wondering whether the welder / sculptor? had left a hidden message in it.

    1. John, I suspect any words would be in Spanish. The sculptors nationality. I have searched but failed to find a message try looking for casa del saber....House of knowledge in Spanish.

    1. Keith, a posh bit of kit the dam. It was used as a practise site for the dam buster raids. Used to be one of my favourite places.

  7. That first photo reminds me of some famous painter, but I can't remember the name! Interesting to see that sculpture in a different context, but I agree it looks better in Antibes (not that I've been there, but as you know I follow the same blogs...)

    1. Monica, it looks better at night. Antibes old town is fine. A very expensive area.....best avoided.
