Revelation, Brave New World and Bishop Durnford

"Revelation" :- I grabbed this shot of the sun shining through puffy clouds when I was walking over the hills on my way into Brighton way back in May 2012. it's an entirely different world up there. Forever changing with the wind and temperatures, condensing and evaporating. We pay little attention to it all but without it we are nothing.

"Brave New World" :- An alien looking landscape right beneath our very nose! This is the beach between Rottingdean and Saltdean on the south coast of England. Rocks mingle in among the hard compacted chalk bed that was once a towering cliff face. If I had a time machine I'd like to travel back a few million years and set up a camera to take an image once every ten years just so i could then watch as the land is built up and then stripped away again over time. Wouldn't that be a fascinating thing to observe!

"Bishop Durnford" :- Silence. Reverential and spacial silence. Maybe once in a while the odd echo or reverberation breaks the stillness as something's dropped or a door is closed somewhere but other than that it is deadly quiet. It's almost as if they are trying not to disturb the figures that lie in the Cathedral from their long and historical rest. There are many inside this grand and ancient structure located in Chichester, West Sussex, England. This one is the tomb of The Rt Rev Richard Durnford (3 November 1802 – 14 October 1895) and he was the was the Bishop of Chichester from 1870 to 1895. Interestingly enough in 1851 he was a member of the Association for the Protection of Homeopathic Students and Practitioners.All
