An image from the new arts space, Spazju Kreattiv, in Valletta, Malta. Built into the old walls and rock it certainly is a very satisfying piece of architecture. There's a cinema, a theatre and spaces for exhibitions. Also a cafe and an atrium area. Very quiet as it doesn't seem to be very well signposted or advertised! Just opposite the Auberge de Castille. www.kreattivita.org/en/about/

Circle of Animals | Ai Weiwei | Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Circle of Animals | Ai Weiwei | Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Photographed at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Good light today! 'Ai reinterpreted the 12 bronze heads representing the traditional Chinese zodiac that once adorned the famed fountain-clock of the Yuanming Yuan, the imperial summer palace retreat in Beijing. Ransacked in 1860 during the Second Opium War by the British and French, only seven of the original heads have been returned to China – the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, horse, monkey, and boar. The locations of the other five – dragon, snake, goat, rooster, and dog – are still unknown. Central to Ai’s reimagined zodiac is the metamorphosis provoked by expulsion, migration, and deliberate change of location undergone by people and objects alike. In 2015, Ai was awarded the Ambassador of Conscience Award by Amnesty International. Cast in bronze and standing three metres high, the sculptures each weigh 363kg. Through the re-interpretation of the heads on a larger scale, Ai comments and encourages debate on the politics of ownership, cultural history, repatriation and authenticity. The artist also wanted the work to be playful and accessible to the general public: "I want this to be seen as an object that doesn't have a monumental quality, but rather is a funny piece… people can relate to or interpret on many different levels, because everybody has a zodiac connection".'

This year the project is 'Macro' just using the Fuji X100S as usual ... Seen in my Leeds garden ... It’s been a decade since the Tree Bumblebee arrived in the UK under its own steam, and in that time it has spread rapidly. It doesn’t appear to be damaging any of our native bee populations and is a very effective pollinator, so it’s a welcome new arrival. Macro 2017

katavothres water wheel | kefalonia

Katavothres Water Wheel | Kefalonia At Katavothres the sea flows inland and enters sinkholes on the earth that is below sea level. It is assumed that there are caverns below the seabed which is where the water flows in. The corn mills used to be run in these holes. The water would flow swiftly through the artificial channels and the wheel would start spinning.
