Fierce winds and white knuckles! I was holding on for dear life.

When exploring abandoned chateau’s / villa’s it’s the little things that are left behind that tell the story. They give you a little snippet into the life that was once lived within the four walls. I am never really comfortable exploring such locations, I get a sense that the owners will walk through the door at any given minute as if they had just nipped out for bread and milk.

Such possessions don’t usually last very long in these abandoned dwellings as they are subjected to looters and vandals who care more about profit and destruction rather that the documentation of such beauty.

 

 

Thanks For Looking!

Another big wall and another big piece!! Finished work on Friday afternoon and eat up the 60 or so miles East?, I think,  to go check out Phlegm’s new piece. Apparently he is going to be up and down walls for a while now so may not need the Sat-nav eventually!!

Sky was perfect for moody take on this monstrous piece.

Thought I would shove my ugly mug in again for a sense of scale, or vanity, you decide!! lol

Another awesome piece and as long as Phlegm’s mind and artistic talents keep ticking over so will my shutter button

Critical Out!!

Took a ride out to see the new pieces Phlegm had put out and check out some oldies too while I was in the neighbourhood.

The main one I wanted to see was the giant Robot head that sits at some old sub station on the outskirts of Sheffield. I had seen the pictures from his blog but didn’t get a sense of scale until I was stood before it.This is the biggest piece of his that I have seen in the flesh and the amount of detail is incredible. From the workings inside the head, the lantern that is lit up, the number 42 on the computer ( which apparently is the answer to the ultimate question ) and the man inside the robots hand.

Detailed shot of the head, so much going on here, awesome!!

…and at the controls of the hand!

A stunning piece!!

The other new piece was one really tucked away on a big oil drum ( Thanks Fiona for info ). The Ancient Mariners. I think I caught it just at the right time too as the rising suns really gives it some colour

After grabbing these 2 pieces it was just a case  of chasing a few oldies to finish off the day.

An awesome way to spend a freezing cold Sunday morning!!

Cheers Critical!
