Michael in Controversy again . . 10-04-2011

Went for breakfast at The Premises Cafe in Hackney and saw this controversial piece of artwork first hand. Rusty didn't even notice it.
To me it was neither art nor controversial!

Beyond Remote . . . . . . 05-03-2011

I used a remote control to take this image.
Its range is pretty good.
The Beyond Group are holding their 2nd Members Exhibition at the 'Octagon' in Colchester.
Today most of its members were there to help hang the exhibition.
I decided to take hundreds of images in order to make up a short A/V of the hanging. My mistake was to not take a spare battery. I had a full charged battery at the beginning, but that was not enough to last the 3 ½ hours that we were there. BETTER LUCK NEXT YEAR!

On the 5th March 2011, at The Octagon in Colchester, we hung the 2nd Exhibition of the Beyond Group's members work.
It will be on for 3 months so hopefully we will get a lot of people visiting and leaving comments for us to take on board for possible future exhibitions.

The Face of Wales

Just returned from doing yet another lecture tour, this time in Cardiff. As per usual we like to walk around and explore the locations that we go to. I was pleased to see that Cardiff has lots of Sculptures scattered around the bay for everyone to enjoy. I wouldn't mind coming back to Cardiff during the summer.

Just came back from doing a short lecture tour around the Bristol area and just had to visit the beautiful Clevedon Pier. A delicate looking Victorian pier. This has been photographed at low tide which I think helps to show it in all its glory.
