RE: Photography
I went to see my father last week, and took my camera with me:

RE: Photography
In Gloucester there are a few modern style sculptures and monuments. One of the interesting ones was called, "St Kyneburgh's Tower", by the BBC and it sort of stuck.

The irony is that it actually represents a well! Kyneburgh was an Anglo-Saxon princess fleeing a political marriage. A kindly Gloucester baker took her in but his missus was not so enthused by his charity. Mrs Baker overcame Kyneburgh and threw her down a well, supposedly close to the site of this monument.

Her rotting body did not foul the well and this was declared a miracle.

If you stand under the monument and look up...

[Image: St%20K%202.jpg]

... you see the layers of the earth and the perfect circle of a well built brick wall around the top. The tapered shape of the structure enhances the perspective effect of greater depth in this view.

Close to this, on the line of the ancient Roman fort wall is another monument...

...think the Romans made a better job of their wall. In those places where the worn down, robbed-out wall can be seen it ain't that wobbly!

Irreverently the locals call the "tower" "The CD Rack" and the "wall" "The Toast Rack"!

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Last night. It looks like the sun is sitting on the power line. Taken from the street that runs along the side of the house.

Gloucester Cross, centre of an ancient city, top of a little hill formed from older levels of building and a millennia's worth of scrap and crap. I know, I have dug archaeologically in it! Interesting scrap and crap though...

From Northgate looking into, yup, you guessed, Southgate with Westgate right and Eastgate left.

Friday so it's Farmers' Market. A busker is sawing his fiddle on the right (I am glad that Gloucester tolerates street music, some is great and it keeps the street preachers away!). A lady is offering free samples of specialty sausages, I think the Dragon variety self-cooks, phwaw! Two friends seem to have just met, the lady in black & white trousers seems to have four arms, other stride on.

On the left is St Michael's Tower, all that is left of the church and HQ for the Civic Trust; coffee, tea, home made cakes, leaflets, maps, books, videos, advice and tours on offer.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

You should really pursue this professionally, FT. They're very good--like something you would see in Natl. Geographic or a travel magazine. Your work also reminds me of Ansel Adams--but with color.

Thanks for the appraisal, Jenny. Don't think I am quite up to 'pro' standard though, wouldn't even know where to begin with it anyway. Smile

You can sell your work on places like Etsy and Amazon Handmade. I think you could also go to Art.com and sell there. They have a section called Artist Uprising (or something like that) and they allow new artists to sell their work. They have some work by photographers there. I'm not sure what you have to do to sell on Art.com, but you could find out.

Seriously--a career in photojournalism--consider it. Find a college or school that offers that sort of thing. You are really good. You can still showcase/sell your work as an artist on the side.
