This comes from a collection of work by an artist who uses Sellotape to wrap around the human form. After many layers it can be cut and reformed around the seams and then, in this case dressed. The guy is able to do amazing things by putting people in impossible places and positions. I think it's wonderful that people can see things that have always been there and use them in a new way.
I suppose you could say this form of art is a bit 'STUCK UP' though!

A thing that gives me great pleasure is to see the variety of stiles with their opening and closing mechanisms.
I thought it would be easy to find endless galleries of photos on the Internet - but no.
There seems to be a never ending supply of ways of getting over or under if you are a dog, between, around or through hedge, fields, gaps and walls. They are such a display of creativity.
Next time you are out for a walk why not enjoy the 'stile', offering great service to the walker and now buggy pusher and cyclist.

For me the year is once again becoming exciting. I enjoy a few summer days but can't wait for that first smell of autumn. It is already in the air. It is a deep, rich, orange smell of beech leaves and the first hints of the air feeling cold when you take a deep breathe. It's like having a good friend return. Soon the ground will rustle and crunch as leaves carpet the new year and I will feel creative again, looking at the world afresh.

Here is one of the brave & courageous wonder-fish swimming up river sometime in late October early November depending on how much water is available for them.

Forgotten Things are Worth Looking At

This beautiful image comes from a few hundred feet below the top of the Llyn Clewedog dam seated above the lovely town of Llanidloes.
The image (amended for emphasis) is part of an old water powered Lead Mine set in stunning countryside.
I am uncertain, but think it may coincide with the end of the journey for the salmon that each year make their journey all the way from Canada.

I have just come back from an amazing Welsh family reunion. Just imagine it - a family tree stretching over 28 sheets of A4 in the smallest of printing.
