#145 Wanted

Dear reader,
I'm looking for pics of interesting street inspection covers, a bit like this one. So if you are wandering around in London, Paris, Chicago or Batu Lumbang (or anywhere else that has pavements) and can snap a cover, please mail me. Thanks!

#135 Judy's Door

From a series of Other People's Doors.
Sally's sister, Judy, made the stained glass windows for this interior door in her house.

#134 To London

We went to London for a few days. Here we are in Covent Garden; Me, Sally and my Mum. When I was a little boy my mother seemed bigger than me . . . . she must be shrinking.


















Next day, Sally, Jay and I walked along by the river and came upon a sculpture by a friend of ours, Karen Richmond. You can stand/lie on it and reflect on the travails of modern life, if you want.

Then we had a tour of Tate Modern. The entrance hall is fitted with some twirly slides (I didn't go on - might have been a bit too much fun).













Across the wobbly footbridge you can see St Paul's Cathedral and, back inside, one of my favourite pictures, Picasso's Three Dancers. I once made a T shirt for a triathlon using this picture as the logo. It's also on my Purple Square series - check the Flickr link on the right.










I pressed the fire control . . .
and ahead of me rockets blazed through the sky.


















. . . . . and then we looked at a nice Asian lady in Tooting and her shop full of shoes.
