Day 55* – Eleven years on

May 2009

I’ve started to sort through some old books and papers in an effort to declutter the masses of box files I have lying around.

Below are five haiku I wrote inspired, I would think, by the things I saw and experienced, again in May 2009. You can click any image for a larger version.

I’m lucky enough to work at The Forum so it wasn’t too difficult to persuade someone to get me onto the roof right over the moon. I knew exactly what I wanted, a clear view looking down on part of the moon with occupied deck chairs close by in a semi circle. (more…)

Norwich has some wonderful buildings that require close examination. However, sometimes it’s nice to step back, or step up, and take a look at them from a distance.

I was on the roof of The Forum taking pictures of the Museum of the Moon, which is currently on display for the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, so I took advantage of my elevated view to grab some images looking over our fine city. (more…)
