  1. what a brilliant series of photos, I really like the juxtaposition of the building shots with the gulls

    • Thanks, Crafty Green. It was an odd place in that there were so many birds among the ruins. I can’t imagine what it would have been like doing time there in sight of the city and with all those birds coming and going at will. It’s a fascinating place.

  2. Poetry in images, James. Just fantastic.
