A house I used to live in as an art student in 1992. It still looks exactly the same with the same yellow door but the oddest conversion has happened of cutting the house in half right down the middle to make 2 maisonettes!

A brilliant fun time. I hope they have the Chocolate Festival again next year.

Chocolate path, Bristol

The chocolate path is a cycle path by the river Avon in Bristol and is renowned for its chocolate like paving. The river is tidal and is a mixture of sea water and river water. The river looks chocolatey today and the water is very high.

Damien Hirst sculpture at the RWA, Bristol ‘Charity’. It really seems to make sense now in this economic downfall.

David Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art, London showing landscape paintings, ipad prints and videos of Yorkshire and a few of California. AMAZING! Following the tradition of Gainsborough but in his unique way.

Occupy Bristol

Occupy Bristol.

Occupy Bristol is a camp made up of tents of found and materials is situated between the Cathedral and the Bristol council buildings. Anarchists and ordinary people have camped here for months to make a stand against Capitalism for a fairer more equal society. We live in a time of government cuts, unreliable employment and inflated house prices.

Bristol City Council and the cathedral will evict the remaining Occupy Bristol demonstrators in the next few days. They are protesting for the good of everyone to create a fairer more equal society and have built their own houses! A few of the protestors are still living here.

I walked around with my friend Fiona and took some photos from afar.

A condescending statue looks on outside the council building. It is horrible.

I think I prefer the waterfront in Winter. The light is so dramatic and I like the inky black and gold reflections in water. I always feel like I am on holiday when I walk around the harbour.
