Black and White challenge – day 4

I have been entangled in the judiciary system now for nearly two weeks. I am not a willing participant, I am merely doing my duty. I have a background that exposed me to legal process from a very early age yet I am finding it difficult at times to grasp the rationale of the practices […]

Black and White challenge – day 3

This image was made outside a healthcare centre in Ipswich. It is where the healthcare workers go for a breath of fresh air in between dealing with people with all manner of illnesses brought about by genetics or lifestyle or just plain bad luck. Always nice to know the righteous have their vices.

For the most part many of us see municipal planting schemes and the relative mundane and anodyne planting schemes proffered by architects, highways engineers and town and country planners. Often, just a stones […]

It was 40 years ago today…..

Scary moment this morning. My mind wandered back to this day 40 years ago when I set off to full time employment as a very junior Civil Servant ostensibly to while away a year being paid whilst I re-sat my failed A-levels. The world was such a different place in those days. Liverpool was still […]
