Black & Light

The beautiful central staircase at The Museum of Liverpool this weekend, black, light, curves and lines reminding me of the magnificent Bramante Staircase in the Vatican Museum.

Death metal, thrash metal, hardcore punk, grindcore… all unknown and unheard of and I never imagined I would get toContinue reading “Music & Movement …staying connected”

The man in black

Just another day in Blackpool..love his Johnny Cash style and the look he’s giving me…he really is the main character in this image but I wonder if he was on his own or on a different street would the image still be as good?
