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!

Lumiere London (2)

Here are some other light installations from Lumiere London.

The Rose window outside Westminster Cathedral is made up of thousands of recycled plastic bottles. Designed by Mick Stephenson it is powered by bicycles pedalled by members of the public.









The Light of the Spirit (Chapter 2) at Westminster Abbey was illuminated by the French digital artist Patrice Warrener. The vivid colours brought the Abbey to life .

  4. Like fireworks, I feel like I've already seen enough illuminated buildings in my lifetime, but the Rose window is very impressive.

  8. As spectacular as these look in pictures, I can imagine they were luminous and inspiring in person! So glad to see it through your eyes!

  9. The part of Westminster Abbey looks like the artist gave a black and white photo to some children, they coloured it in and then he translated it to the real thing. It does look kind of strange, although still good!
