Bath’s canals – images that ask a question

VERY LONG PAGE

Francoise and I decided that a day trip to Bath to get away from it all  would be a good idea. We are very fortunate to live half an hour away from a city with a Georgian stamp on it which makes all the buildings hang together like a unit and is very beautiful to behold whichever way you walk.  This diary will be largely a picture essay. Within 5 or 10 minutes of the centre you can be back in the last centuries walking along the Kennet and Avon canal.

There was an exhibition by Bath artists at the City Art Gallery a bit like the Royal Academy summer show but on a much smaller scale. I would like to show you a number of images which ask questions. If you identify with the people in the picture is not comfortable experience and it reminds me of an approach exactly opposite to the mindless selfies that people take every five minutes. What does the image tell you about the human condition?.
PS You can increase the size of the images on PCs by pressing control and plus at the same time.

The above was called ‘nocturnal’.

and finally I love this advert for a one-man play. It’s about someone who was found dead on the Yorkshire Moors with a return ticket to London in his pocket and with no other identity. The play is about people’s attempt to discover his identity. Bath is a city of culture, no doubt about that.
