Self Portrait - 'Letter from America ...' - 365 days project ... As I sit here on the last morning of our visit to New York I can't help but wonder what it might have been like 80 or 90 years ago when the Art Deco style Hotel Edison was in its heyday. Every morning I check my mail and of course my Flickr contacts photographs and various groups whilst drinking coffee from Danni's deli next door. As I come back to the 19th floor each morning I pass a US Mail 'letter-drop' outside the room. Imagine how different it would have been only 20 years ago! This technology allows us to keep in touch and share our lives so easily ... mostly for the good I would hope ;-) I never like leaving, I feel like I'm just getting into the swing of things here ... however if you don't leave then you can't have the return to look forward too! Goodbye America ... Leeds UK beckons .... PS ... I think there's someone hiding in the bed!

Self Portrait - 'sphere ...' - 365 days project ... Clarence Dock - Leeds "... 'A Reflective Approach' by Kevin Atherton is a two-part sculpture consisting of two life-size bronze figures pushing two mirror polished stainless steel spheres towards a canal. The figures were cast from life using seventeen-year-old Max Langlands. As the figure pushes the ball closer to the canal side the ball increases in size and thus, in the manner of Sisyphus, increases the difficulty of the task."

Self Portrait - '... hangin' around the City walls' - 365 days project ... 'The walls of Conwy are judged the finest in Britain. They are not only completely intact, but largely unencumbered by later building, and still give the impression of enclosing and protecting the town. The construction of the town walls went hand in hand with that of the castle, and they were essentially complete by 1286.'

Self Portrait - '... on the Great Orme' - 365 days project ... Took the tram up the Great Orme this afternoon in Llandudno ... great views across North Wales and Anglesey. 'Llandudno is Wales's largest resort, uniquely situated between the Great and Little Ormes with two wonderful beaches, the award winning North Shore and the quiet, sand duned West Shore. Llandudno has kept its Victorian and Edwardian elegance and splendour, despite its modern attractions. During the Victorian era, roads on the Great Orme were still fairly primitive and the steep slopes prevented all but the most sure footed from reaching the summit. Llandudno was fast becoming a very popular tourist resort, so it wasn't long before local businessmen latched on to the idea of a cable tramway. A little over 15 months after construction work started at the bottom of the Orme, the line was declared safe by the Board of Trade. On 31st July 1902 the first car moved off from Victoria Station, to the sound of the town band playing "God save the King". '

Self Portrait - 'another day, another castle ...' - 365 days project ... Beaumaris Castle - Anglesey - North Wales ... 'Beaumaris Castle on the Island of Anglesey is the great unfinished masterpiece. It was built as one of the 'iron ring' of North Wales castles by the English monarch Edward I, to stamp his authority on the Welsh. But it was never finished money and supplies ran out before the fortifications reached their full height. Beaumaris is nonetheless an awesome sight, regarded by many as the finest of all the great Edwardian castles in Wales. Begun in 1295, it was also the last. The king's military architect, the brilliant James of St George, brought all his experience and inspiration to bear when building this castle, the biggest and most ambitious venture he ever undertook.'

Self Portrait - 'Be seeing you ...' - 365 days project ... Spent the day at Portmeirion in Wales. Fantastic weather today and lots of potential shots to upload at some point! This was the home of the 1960's TV show 'The Prisoner' starring Patrick McGoohan who died last year. I'm quite a fan of the series and took my umbrella today specially to use as a prop ... pity it fell apart! If you haven't been here for a while it's been really spruced up and the sunny weather made it a great day out. 'Portmeirion is an Italianate resort village in Gwynedd, on the coast of Snowdonia in Wales. The village is located near Penrhyndeudraeth, on the estuary of the River Dwyryd. Portmeirion has served as a location for films and television shows, most famously serving as The Village in The Prisoner.'

Self Portrait - 'timeline ...' - 365 days project ... The Peter Harrison Planetarium - Greenwich - 'The geometry of the planetarium reflects key astronomical concepts. Above ground it is manifested as a tilted bronze cone aligned with the north star at 51.5 degrees. The disc cut at 90 degreees through its apex is parallel to the celestial equator. This plane is clad in layers of reflecting glass in which the space of the passing sky is revealed. A groove up the south side marks the axis of the cone on the meridian line and aligns with the pole star ... The planetarium cone is one of the single largest uses of bronze in the world. It is made from nearly 250 individual plates welded together and patinated to look like a single piece. ' Phew ... just managed to post on the same day! Took a boat on the River Thames to Greenwich, neither things I have done before. Followed by a second abortive visit to the new 'Photographer's Gallery'. On Monday it shuts (should have checked), today (and tomorrow) it was closed for a 'private function' , just annoying! Just got back from the theatre after seeing The Lion King. Splendid :-))

Self Portrait - 'Post-it and note it ...' - 365 days project ... "The Post-it note is a piece of stationery with a re-adherable strip of adhesive on the back, designed for temporarily attaching notes to documents and to other surfaces: walls, desks and table-tops, computer displays, and so forth. While now available in a wide range of colors, shapes, and sizes, the most common size of Post-it note is a 3-inch (76 mm) square, canary yellow in color (however they can be other colours). The notes use a unique low-tack adhesive that enables Post-it notes to be easily attached and removed without leaving marks or residue, unless used on white boards. It was invented by 3M's Art Fry using an adhesive developed by a colleague, Spencer Silver. Until the 1990s, when the patent expired, Post-it notes were only produced in the 3M plant in Cynthiana, Kentucky. Although other companies now produce them, most of the world's Post-it notes are still made in Cynthiana. The name "Post-it" and the canary yellow color are trademarks of 3M. Accepted generic terms for competitors include "sticky notes" or "repositionable" or "repositional notes." 3M manufactures other products related to the Post-it note concept, leveraging the success of the brand. Computerized versions of Post-it notes include 3M's own "Post-it Software Notes," and Apple's "Stickies."" Wikipedia

I might return to Magritte when I have more time!

Self Portrait - 'Halfway down the stairs' - 365 days project 'Halfway down the stairs' written by A.A. Milne "Halfway down the stairs is a stair where I sit. There isn't any other stair quite like it. I'm not at the bottom, I'm not at the top. So this is the stair where I always stop. Halfway up the stairs isn't up and isn't down. It isn't in the nursery, it isn't in the town. And all sorts of funny thoughts run round my head. It isn't really anywhere, it's somewhere else instead. Halfway down the stairs is a stair where I sit. There isn't any other stair quite like it. I'm not at the bottom, I'm not at the top. So this is the stair where I always stop." Guess I'm feeling thoughtful today...
