A favourite view: the funfair at Clarence Pier in Southsea, taken on a sunny day at the beginning of March. The 1960s architecture of the yellow and blue tower always delights me, and the rides, arcade machines and food stalls invite passersby for an hour or two of classic, if slightly kitsch, seaside amusement. Going to this funfair always makes me feel like a teenager again.

I’ve started this new blog to record sights, sounds and experiences are part of everyday life but that are just as beautiful to me as the things we find in museums or galleries.  Like a path snaking through the dunes, or even the pebbles in the sand.
