V1 - A mix of a very little reality (the central panel of textured steel and the right-hand handle), and a lot of reflection;
V2 - Some sort of explanation - this is the door at the back of the Kielder Water Belvedere, a sculpture/shelter built of panels of textured and polished steel, to reflect the landscape around it.
Mikbee is going into hospital for an op today - for once, letís hope they donít find too much rust... Hereís wishing you a speedy recovery, Mick.
I have very little time on the site at the moment, as well as the exams being in full swing I am preparing the town's Northumbria in Bloom portfolio for printing - 30 pages, loads of photos, flowers of course, but also community activities, schoolsí involvement, horticultural and environmental policy, lists of sponsors etc. Twenty seven pages done, just three to go, thereís light at the end of the tunnel!
Thanks for looking,

Your eye for the unusual is as ever very good Moira, love the different textures, quite mind bending in some ways.
I agree with your sentiment on Mikbee, hope all goes well and he's out again soon, fit and well.


14 Jun 2010 - 9:03 AM

I remember your "reflective" images before Moira, and these two are just as excellent.
Get well soon Mikbee!

Thanks everyone. When I left this morning for school this was on 2 votes out of 16 unique views, it did not bode well... I'm glad you have enjoyed it.
A very nice Head Teacher has just to agreed to a picture of his students going into the portfolio, no hysteria, no calls for the police... I'm off out again photographing gardens this afternoon, that will be another page.

Superb pair of images Moira, for me it has to be V1.

It's good that you have still found time to upload this shot. What a find, something to be explored. I must admit that at first I thought you had found a space age public toilet! A case of art imitating life?

Bit of a brain teaser in V1 Moira Smile And yes, i'm sure we all wish Mick well, and hope to see Him back onsite very soon.

I liked v1 regardless but was puzzling over the pov etc till I looked at v2 and that answered all the puzzles , I still think v1 is a grand image and think overall I prefer the puzzle Smile

Aye I am with you hope Mick is fine and back among us soonest ...

I thought Mikbee had entered the Big Brother House when i saw v1 and hadn't seen him about here recently! lol It looks like the entrance to the house, not that I watch that mindless rubbish you understand. It's just like watching paint dry or this years Fifa world cup! lol
