The Ken Fox Troupe and The Wall Of Death

I was fortunate  enough to come across the Ken Fox troupes Wall of Death at the 2015’s Bristol Volksfest and seeing as I have never seen a wall of death performance before I thought it would be interesting to see. 

There was some great riding skills on show and it was all very entertaining and it looked like they were all enjoying what they were doing and the crowd were all appreciative of their efforts on putting on such a good show and to be honest I thought it was really great and it completed an already great weekend.

The Montpelier Bean Fest Walls

I have been meaning to take some photos of these beautiful walls since last year when the children in Montpelier painted two of the walls leading into Montpelier Park in Bristol for the Montpelier Bean Fest

It was the curves of the walls coupled with those big splashes of colour alongside the trees and the light that just caught my eye.

I must have spent a good 40 minutes, what with waiting for the light to just change a bit and playing with the angles that worked for me the most.

Touch Of Red

I’m just trying out a bit of a photoessay on a building  that I had noticed for a while now  that had a red spotlight on the side of it and made the effort to go and take a few photos of it, using the red as a focal point.

Unfortunately or as it turned out fortunately  it was raining when I took the shots, so I popped down after work and grabbed my shots trying to keep the camera dry and  work a couple of angles trying to keep the  rain of the lens.

it was a interesting and fun exercise which I will repeat again I’m sure ….

Paintsmiths visit Heron Road

The Scaffolding recently came down on a new mural from Paintsmiths which, for this work, was Felix and Jack Tiernay for Bristol City Council and the Warm Up Bristol Campaign show home over at 56 Heron Road, Easton, BS5.

The mural itself is a stunning piece of work showing off the house itself and lots of examples of the old types of energy and the new sustainable energies that are now available.

The Life Sciences Building

I have taken some photos of the new University of Bristol Life Sciences building on Tyndall Avenue. I am really liking the architectural abstract parts of the building a lot, there are some great lines and curves. It’s nice to see a new building that isn’t a straight and boring box, like so many of the new buildings in Bristol.
