What’s with the Glitches?

Just a quick one tonight, hopefully glitch free….  According to Wikpedia a Glitch is a short lived fault,common in computers: let’s hope it is.   I have got into the habit of scheduling my posts, usually about 20 past midnight.  Well I did the same as usual last night.  I was doing other work on my p.c. noticedContinue reading “What’s with the Glitches?”

York Break: When in York, Bath!

I love the intimacy of the Roman bath in York.  The bath is situated under the Roman Bath pub, St Sampson’s Square, York.  At one time you could look through a piece of glass in the floor or wall in the pub and see the partly excavated bath in the cellar.   Now, the bathContinue reading “York Break: When in York, Bath!”

A Trip to York: Alas poor Jorvik (centre)…maybe next time

Harvey Nicks? Hold that Springtime pose!

I took these photos the other day.  Harvey Nichols Manchester always has great window displays.   When I was at school I always wanted to be a window dresser.  It may have been to do with all my dolls I was always making clothes for and dressing.  I was always designing clothes, making clothes, getting myContinue reading “Harvey Nicks?

Altered art book continued: Pages 21 and 22 The not so Hidden Gem

Continuing page 22 in my altered art book.  The Stations mentioned in the text (Moscow, Brussels, Helsinki and Hiversum) used in the context of the shrine, refer to the 14 Stations of the Cross or the Way of Sorrow: Christ’s journey to his own crucifixion.   Tucked away through an alleyway, in a small enclosedContinue reading “Altered art book continued: Pages 21 and 22 The not so Hidden Gem”
