As a pro. photographer, probably the least thing I can think about posting here is a mere photograph. But we dropped into Dysart yesterday and on a grey day this seemed to be a most fine sculpture at the harbour. As with most photies created these days – no camera was abused.


Grey Sculpture

  1. Thanks, Allan, for this and your prior email with a splendid painting of an aeroplane and the bridge in Bosnia. You did send me a Christmas card. But what about a Caley Jumbo and a bridge in Peebles?

    Anyhow, all the best to you and Ruthie in 2015. Hope we can meet up ere long.

    I never could do crosswords- especially, I suspect, in the FT. Capable of a few though………
    The Curse of The Shadow. I hope that’s OK as it’s supposed to be a low winter light – but I’m rubbish with shadows, so you may well be right.
    My errors here are – the bridge was mined by the Austro-Hungarians in 1914 and the far side SHOULD have 2 spans missing. Plus the Drina’s level has risen to the level shown after hydro-electric dams were installed upstream and down. There should be 4 or 5 feet more pillars showing. Tosser!
    No matter – the thing is painted in oils so I’ll adjust to authentic levels for 1918. Still, that shadow…..
