Dusty bottles

I took this picture in a museum in upstate New York back in 2009, although to my shame I can’t remember exactly where I shot it.  The things which people discard, the detritus of day-to-day life, can be just as … Continue reading

Reflecting windows

At first glance, today’s image looks very neat and symmetrical, but on careful examination it’s full of untidy disruptions to that sense of order.  One of the columns of windows sits slightly recessed from the others, carving a deeper line … Continue reading

A long break

Well, it’s been around three weeks since I last posted up a photo – sorry about that!  I’ve had a busy few weeks toing and froing from the WW1 battlefields of France and Belgium with tour groups, beginning with a … Continue reading

New River pumping station

In some ways, today’s picture looks rather empty, but it shows a view which I liked when I used to live in Hertfordshire.  The New River, which flows through the picture, was constructed in the early 1600s to bring fresh … Continue reading

Water feature

Water cascades down in a spiral, tumbling over the propeller-like wings of a fountain sculpture in today’s image, which was taken at the magnificent gardens of Barnards Farm in Essex.  There are a number of stunning sculptures in the grounds, … Continue reading
