Happy New Year

As it's the time of year for reflection and new starts, I've been thinking (please, no jokes). Re-reading my original statement about this project. I need to redefine what I am doing so, this is my first text only post.

Jerusalem as a  project was only ever loosely defined, it's more a bunch of ramblings, both physically in the landscape and in the mind. I have only ever had a vague notion of where I was going with it but, does it really matter?

A continuing theme of my landscape projects over the years has been borderlands (see: The Wash, Confused Landscape, True Stories ). The areas of landscape that are between one place and another.

Coastal areas have always interested me so this might be the project for 2018. Photographing the Lincolnshire coast in greater detail would continue the trend and integrate with the larger Lincolnshire theme.

Beauty

Is it the ugliest telegraph pole ever or the most beautiful?

Echo

Echoing the landscape! Unfortunately, I can not attribute the artist as there was no label.

It's not the time of year for birth and new life to begin unless, you are seal.

The end

So, this is the end of the Viking Way. 200 miles, I had to go back to the car every-time, in effect I walked it twice. I have set up a small website as a side project with usual musings https://spark.adobe.com/page/6qT6lYFam1TlG/  - enjoy...

South Ferriby cement works. The Lincolnshire Wolds is littered with chalk quarries. Conveyor belts, miles long, transport the chalk down to the cement works on the Humber.

The one good thing about chalk and clay pits (apart from concrete and bricks) is that they make great wildlife reserves when finished.
