Displayed for All to See

This week’s Lens-Artists challenge invites us to look at what’s On Display.  At this time of year, there are Christmas lights, tempting displays of food and ideas-for-presents in the shops.  But I decided to go down several different paths:  the workaday world of the security camera:

Staffing the security cameras at Leeds Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility.
Security cameras at a tunnel entrance: Docklands Light Railway, London. I quite like it that this phone image is a little muzzy.

Public service broadcasting in the form of a domestic tv, and a public screening of the Tour de Yorkshire in the village next door, in 2017.

Our French friend Francis watches a documentary about Yorkshire.

And finally – works displayed in an art gallery.  Let’s start at the London Mithraeum,

…then pop over to Tate Liverpool.

Before ending up at Salt’s Mill, Saltaire, to see the David Hockney exhibition, ‘Arrival of Spring‘.

Lens-Artists Challenge #76

A Dock, an Art Gallery: Liverpool

Liverpool’s tourist Mecca:  the Albert Dock.

Tate Liverpool: park your umbrella inside….

Beyond the gallery window: industrial life.

Snow? Shifting perspectives? Infinite space?

Concentric lines, unsettled steps – careful! Zobop!

Jim Lambie: Zobop 1999

Arte Povera: a classical figure commentates.

Water within, water without: a view, a statue.

Beuys/me: two self-portaits in one.

Josef Beuys: Felt suit, 1970.

Time for a smartphone moment: Sue?

And a bike moment:  Sue again?

And a pause for reflection.

Before the rains came…. yet again.
