Even our vision of dystopia was innocent 40 years ago.
It’s always tricky photographing other people’s art and then displaying your photograph… I mean, who really did the work here? (hint… I don’t think it was the sculptor to be honest…)
Funny this wooden cross in the ramshackle old part of the cemetery. You wouldn’t think it could go the distance. But I’m pretty sure it’s good for another 87 years. Might very well outlast the marble and granite markers surrounding it.
The dungeon of Diocletian’s palace in Split. Gave me the shivers. Bad as we humans can be here in the 21st century, we can’t really hold a candle to our forebears. Oddly, that gives me hope.

I love birds, pretty much all birds, all colours, shapes, sizes, mannerisms and dispositions.
Except for the flamingo. Yes, it is lovely from afar, simply splendid when taking flight en masse. But the ugliest, most horrid of cranky, miserable creatures when you get up close. It’s not just that its mouth is twisted into a sneer, but its demeanour, its tone, its quarrelsome nature.
The hippo makes the rhino seem downright cuddly…
