Yesterday we went on a coach trip. It rained all morning – although fortunately it cleared up later – and at the side of the road I saw this foxglove, complete with raindrops.

The Thames, Near Barnes Bridge

Hard to believe, but this is the River Thames at Barnes. As the crow flies, it’s only a few miles to the very heart of the city, but it could be a different world. You don’t want to know how much the houses cost around here.

The Paraglider

This image of a paraglider at the summer Airshow in Blond provides a pleasingly symmetrical combination of circles and curves.

The centrepiece

This is a detail from the centrepiece of a quilt that was shown at an Expo in Nantes a few years ago. It is to all intents and purposes entirely made up of squares and triangles.
