My Christmas present from mrswoolybill was "A History of the World in Twelve Maps" by Jeremy Brotton, a fascinating, detailed and lengthy study.

These three pictures are nothing to do with it! They are actually sections of the Victorian steel railway bridge parapet crossing over Exeter railway station showing the various weathering patterns. I photographed all sixteen panels but will refrain from boring you with them all . . .

Who would have thought that rust and old paint would be so artistic - you did and very successfully. A

A wonderfully observed set Bill. Image number two certainly looks like the UK.

What a wonderful set Bill! When I studied geography I came across maps that were more ambiguous than those Smile

I love these. My kinda shots. Bravo, Bill.

So interesting the stuff you can see in these. That whale with the shark's fin in Vs 1 and 3. A stealth bomber flying off the bottom of the image in V4. And to save the best for last...

...V2: A lady looking to the left, her hair flying off to the right. She's holding a chicken drumstick in her right hand. Tugging her skirt on the bottom left is a little kid. He's obviously feeling peckish. And she's like, "Nope, not until you've washed your hands!"

V2 has to be the British Isles, Bill. As to the others, I think the Gods coughed, several extremely large bits of the earth went 'kerthunk', the plates moved and the world looked different from yesterday.

They all look a bit fishy to me! Especially Vs 1 and 3, which are like underwater images or views of a fish tank. Andrew's description for V3 is perfect.

The rust and peeling paint resemble the sketchy maps of yesteryear beautifully Bill, when we discovered that the world wasn't flat the artists impressions of our world were changed for ever.

Very well observed Bill, such fascinating shapes and colours. I'm sure one of the countries on there must be Mikbee's favourite RustiaWink
