Large Patterns in the Landscape

A very quick post today, really just to show you some massive patterns I’ve been spotting and enjoying in the countryside just outside Edinburgh. They are of course man made by farmers. Green field of crops Ploughed field with tree shadows crops       Don’t worry, the frost has gone, the photos below were taken in Winter. Frosty road P1010815


Lots of fun things going on at unifiedspace right now, more on that next week.

Have a great weekend and let me know if you spot any huge patterns near you.

Inspired by the Mundane

I’ve been trying to walk as much as possible and take some “alternative” routes around Edinburgh – not the scenic routes but the ordinary, slightly ugly nondescript routes and I have become transfixed by the amount of paint on surfaces around the pavement. It may sound an odd thing to be thinking about but if you look closely at the shapes and colour of some of the markings even ultra familiar routes can become new and interesting. This is what I saw.

Looking at Net Packaging

I’m not sure why but lately I’ve become really fascinated with the simple net packaging around fruit and vegetables. At first I was attracted to the choice of colour the suppliers choose for the nets but then I became really interested in the three dimensional shapes of the discarded packaging. It may be due to the fact that I’ve lived with a Harry Bertoia chair for a long time. I never tire of my Diamond Chair as it supplies a never ending display of interesting shadows and shapes.

Here are some of the nets I’ve enjoyed looking at.
