Something to do with that dazzling white paint I suppose — seducing the software — the skies are always unbelievably deep and intense behind the lantern at the Trinity House lighthouse on Lizard Point.
It’s just a guess but I’d bet almost anything that this granite finger is called Gull Rock … OMG, looking at the map it has a name name: Bumble Rock. Not sure about that. There are bona fide black-backed gulls just sitting there, owning it. Bumble? Teetering. Hmmm … Maybe. I’ll go with Gull.
And this week’s high point, half way to the moon, was high above Housel Bay …
Weird, no? Waving, not falling.
But in the steep little valleys around the Lizard, Spring has definitely vorsprunged.
So, whatcha do on a blustery Sunday … not looking for a soaking but something a little more soothing …
A gentle wander around Trengwainton, looking for the elixir of life (slight of hand: go somewhere where you’re the youngest person by two decades at least — works every time) — a beautiful crown of croziers in a forest of tree ferns.
Camellias at their best … dodging between the squally showers … much more my sort of tea time.
And lovely low, warm light exposing the trees up to lovely no good.
And fungus offering up plates of … hmmm … rot and decay … nom nom nom.
And enforcers on parade … you will be white! White is best. Whatever.
And, of course … this being Penwith … magnolias to die for …
Lovely day in Kassel, at about 4:30 am, workers from a local construction company began dismantling Olu Oguibe’s “controversial obelisk made for Documenta 14, titled “Monument to Strangers and Refugees,” (“I was a stranger and you took me in”: Matthew 25:35) with two heavy cranes.
By 9:30 am, the obelisk was entirely gone, strapped to a flatbed truck and sent to a construction site on the outskirts of the city (where it now remains).
