This is the Owen Building, part of Sheffield Hallam University. On the side of the building is a poem called ‘What If?’ by Andrew Motion, written for the Off The Shelf literature festival in 2007. I was in Sheffield as my younger cousin was due to start studying at the university in about a months time and had never visited the city before. So we drove across the Pennies to Yorkshire. Obviously being a nice day I took my camera.
I can’t work out what this graffiti says. I know that the first letter is D and that there is a large mouse faced man with glasses looking a bit of a geek (hence my title). To me it doesn’t matter what it says, it really caught my eye as I wandered down this huge wall of graffiti or street art. If anyone has any information on what this says or who this character is I would love to read about it in the comments below. Could this possibly be a Spanish cartoon character that I don’t know about? This was taken in Barcelona back in 2008.
This Wall Mural was found on one of the buildings in the centre of Zurich. It shows some of the cities famous churches such as the Fraumunster and St Peter’s. The date at the bottom below the river is 1568 so I can only presume this is what the city looked like near 500 years ago. Unfortunately I don’t have a record of where I was stood when this was taken, so it is hard for me to research any further information.
The Creation of Adam is a small section of Michelangelo’s painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. It was painted in 1511 and is one of the world’s most famous images. Rather than just focusing on that small section, I included some of the surrounding area.
