“Green Saw” : Hiroshima City University, 3rd August 2011
Well, tonight’s photo is something of a stop-gap.
I usually select a picture from the eight hundred or so of my best I have on display at www.lightfootphotos.com, my online gallery, but now the link is down and I can’t connect to it.
So, instead, I’ve uploaded from my computer this previously rejected shot I took earlier in the summer while I was lurking in the art department of a university I teach at.
Now I come to look at it, it’s not really so bad, is it?
This saw blade was enormous, and judging from the surrounding artefacts, it was used to cut stone.
The entire area is awash with a mélange of abandoned machinery, tools, statues, installations and all manner of unidentified objects, not to mention a troop of ginger cats who are lovingly maintained by the art students.
I love wandering around there, always with a slightly heavy heart in that I wish I could work in such a creative and interesting arena, rather than the altogether more mundane and grey department I toil in.
The other man’s grass…
