Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Weekend Reflection at the Olympic Park

Spiegelei Junior by Jem Finer.


This art installation can be found in the Queen Elizabeth Park, commonly known as the Olympic park. On the outside this sculpture inverts and reflects the surrounding park. If you go underneath the sculpture you can put your head inside and the camera obscura gives you a 360deg view of the upside down park.

  7. That must be a fun installation. It looks and sounds similar to "the bean" in Chicago.

  13. A nicely taken photograph but I suspect one that could turn out not so good from a lesser photographer. You sneaked into the picture too I see!
