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!

London Lumiere 4

Here are a few more photos I took of Lumiere London which took place in venues throughout Central London for four nights this month. Although I am staying with my daughter at the moment, helping to look after my new grandson, I took a couple of hours off to go and have a look at the amazing light installations. My night photography isn't that good but I still wanted to share some of the highlights with you.


Daniel Canogar- Asalto London. Spanish born Canogar's work is a large scale projection onto Westminster City Hall, 'helping us to imagine overcoming obstacles in our lives'. The video shows people appearing to slowly climb up the wall to the top.





The work, Light on their feet, by the British artist David Ward is shown on the outside of the Rambert Dance Company's building. 'By photographing the soles of the dancers' feet, Ward has made a series of images that fade slowly into visibility and then out again, each foot disclosing a different relationship to the surface beneath.'





Entre les rangs by the Canadian Rami Bebawi is a field of thousands of illuminated flower shaped reflectors as a tribute to fields of wheat that shimmer  in the wind as the seasons pass.


















This is Love Motion by Rhys Coren projected on to the Royal Academy of Arts. It is a Matisse inspired animation of two paper cut figures who spend the evening kissing and dancing.







Don't think this had anything to do with Lumiere London but definitely worth a photo.

  13. I love the fields of wheat ones -- we grew up in wheat-growing country and the changing colors make a wonderful representation of the changing seasons . Its so interesting to think about how these artists work -- and all so beautiful.
    (And that last photo is so whimsical, made me laugh).

  14. It looks like fun. I remember the lasers they installed one year in London back in the '70s when I lived in Holland - we took a trip over just to see them.
