When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.
Last week, a shot from a holiday. This week, a little closer to home. This is the Spinnaker Tower in the ferry port of Portsmouth, UK. I think it was a millenium project, but in common with all the others, it was late. No matter, this tower now stands on the seafront, about 45 minutes away from home, and greets passengers as they come and go. As well as being a ferry port, Portsmouth is home to a shrinking naval base, and was the birthplace of English novellist Charles Dickens.
When we went up the tower, the views from the gallery were spectacular – even straight down – part of the floor is transparent!
