Poland to Salisbury

February 21st, 2008

Shown here at Salisbury Cathedral, this group of figures carved by artist Robert Koenig are ending a journey taken by his mother in 1942 from Poland to the German Nazi slave labour camps and on to the UK where she settled. More of my cathedral shots here.

Spinnaker Tower

February 16th, 2008

Rising 170 metres (557 feet) above Portsmouth harbour, the elegant and sculptural Spinnaker Tower was inspired by the shape of a sail. Building costs totalled just over 35 million pounds. In the first shot below, the black rectangle at the top is the largest glass floor in Europe. More of my Portsmouth photos here.

Untaken photographs

February 6th, 2008

A photographer’s blog with no images, only words describing the photographs he did not take. Missed opportunities with no camera, or occasions where he was not brave enough to click the shutter. Vivid and often poignant, www.unphotographable.com.

Bletchley Park

February 4th, 2008

Added some shots taken at the wartime codebreaking establishment Bletchley Park to my main gallery here.

Intimate lemon

February 3rd, 2008

Looking like something captured by an endoscope, it’s actually just half a lemon (with a bit of processing in Paint Shop Pro).
