Odeon Cinema

I walked past the Odeon Cinema in Salisbury for decades assuming it was mock Tudor until showing some French guests around I wandered in. The foyer is actually an original late mediaeval Hall, the Hall of John Halle. These are some of the furnishings of it.

Crop Circle White Sheet Hill Wiltshire 2010

The media were a bit coy about what exactly is conveyed in this creation. You can see it from a public car park. Fun for us but less amusing for the farmer especially as romping couples will probably add to the crop damage.

Art from the New World

This was the installation made by Mike Stilkey with 2000 books, mostly the memoirs of Terry Wogan, which would otherwise have been pulped. It stands in the foyer of the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery to advertise the exhibition Art from the New World on until August 22nd. Brash, surrealist and fun.

This stands about five feet high and I set it in my garden with woods behind. Made with stuff from the local recycling yard.

Not a crop circle Cley Hill

It is that time of year again when patterns appear on the wheat fields of Wiltshire. This one is below Cley Hill near Warminster. The Hill has international celebrity as a vantage point for spotting UFO's and I directed some French tourists to le crop circle. Not a circle this time.
