Perfect day

A stroll all alone

talking to those departed;

no longer alone.

  • Roughly once a year I visit Bracklesham in West Sussex and spend a couple of hours finding peace, looking for fossil shark teeth and remembering departed loved ones. The perfect way to recharge my batteries. Ready for the long slog to Christmas now. 

28. Baffins Lane car park, Chichester

My mother told me I really should go and check out a beautiful bird mural in the centre of Chichester when I was visiting a week or two ago, so I did.

The mural, which overlooks the Baffins Lane car park, is by ROA, and was created during the Chichester street art festival in 2013.

Although his work appears throughout Europe and beyond, little is known about the artist from Ghent, Belgium.

He specialises in pictures of animals, often gracefully contorted in death poses. These birds however, are very much alive. I will have to look out his work in Bristol.
