The morning bus.  The rather grim expression; “that look”; foreboding?  The passenger in red, slumped forwards over the seat.

SOMERSET LEVELS 446 – THE NORTH DRAIN, LOOKING WEST (MONO)

 

 


.
An early morning visit to the Somerset Levels on Friday.  There was a storm here last weekend and the effects were still apparent: trees down, lots of surface water everywhere (tho no real flooding as yet), and farmers on enormous tractors trying to manoeuvre farm machinery through simply vast amounts of mud – and temporarily blocking the narrow roads in the process.  And, as I type this today (Saturday), yet another storm, with further vast amounts of rainfall and high winds, is hitting us this weekend.

I got to a favourite spot on Tealham Moor, where a little bridge crosses a manmade waterway called the North Drain, which helps to take the water off these frequently sodden flatlands.  It was a quiet morning, a short-lived ridge of high pressure – the calm before today’s storm! – was over us, and I looked west along the almost flat and morionless surface of the drain.  There were the reflections of three small bushes in the still water, and the waterway disappeared around a bend in the distance.  The scene was simple, almost Minimal in a way, with the blank sky and water separated by a great dark wedge of winter landscape pushing across from the right.

PEOPLE 389 – GOING TO WORK 101

 

 


.

Two worlds.  Above: reality, what things are actually like, how things actually are.  (For “things”, perhaps I should say, “Life”)

Below: marketing, persuasive design, imagined realities – how those intent on profiting from Consumerism’s great festival would like us to believe things are.
