One of eight large-scale steel sculptures by artist Mark di Suvero at Crissy Field in the Golden Gate National Park, San Francisco.
Had some computer issues this week which is hampering my ability to post.
I took this recently near my house.
Saw this interesting piece at a flea market this weekend. It’s not your typical typewriter with the letters on the end of arms that hammer down on a ribbon. This has a wheel which rotates and tilts to the correct letter as you press the key and the brushes over a small inkpad before making its mark – clever engineering and similar in some ways to IBM’s electric ‘golf ball’ design many decades later.
I don’t know why but industrial architecture and landscapes always interest me. I recently took my Bessamatic out with a 50mm lens and some Delta 400 and shot these of my local power station (perhaps as a homage to Willard Van Dyke?).
Not sure they came out quite how I saw them but I am very happy with the Bessamatic; the image quality is excellent.
This is one from the archives and I am entering it for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge Structure. Many of the bridges on this stretch of the Shropshire Union Canal are constructed way beyond the basic needs and this is a good example.
It was built around 1830 with the Engineer being Thomas Telford. According to Historic England it is described as being a Single stilted round arch flanked by pilasters; sweeping balustraded parapet on rounded corbels.
These bridges were effectively a sweetener to the local land owners from the canal company to allow the waterway to be constructed across their land, this one simply provides for the driveway to Chillington Hall, owned by the Giffard family since the 12th Century.
I know that most of this image is out of focus but I kinda like it’s abstractness
