The ‘Tyred’ Mechanic

When I was in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, earlier this year I took a cheeky shot of a ‘tired mechanic’. It was early in the morning and most people were bright and bubbly, enjoying the cool start of the day. This guy had perhaps not had the benefit of a good night’s sleep and was enjoying a short nap in his tyre-chair.

Different Shades of Purple

 

In the middle of August, the North Yorkshire Moors transform into a sea of purple. The subtle perfume of the tiny purple flowers drifts in the wind heralding autumn.

The other side of the world, a month later, on a dusty hot roadside in the Goldfields, Western Australia,  spring flowers burst into bloom.

Inside Australia

Just after dawn

The sculptures glow

in the early sun.

We walk

tracing lines

from figure to figure

in the waterless lake

 

Lake Ballard, a salt lake in Western Australia’s Goldfields, is home to 51 metal figures sculpted by Antony Gormley. He’s perhaps most famous for The Angel of the North, a steel sculpture 20 metres high with a 54 metre wingspan, located in Gateshead in the North East of England.
