The Night Watch

Night Watch by Rembrandt is a painting of enormous cultural significance to the Dutch people. It inspires both artists and the millions of visitors who stand before it every year.
Rembrandt completed the painting in 1642, which marked the beginning of a more difficult phase of his career. In the following years the artist would see fewer commissions and financial difficulty so great that he would eventually be declared bankrupt.
Yet these later years were actually some of the most creative of his career. Did the Night Watch mark the end of an era?

Winter is Coming

This is a photo I like, taken a few years ago in Long Beach California.

I wouldn`t mind being there now. The bright blue skies, warm sunshine all year around.

Brighton Pavilion

I had a look around here the other day. It has quite a number of interesting displays and spacious cafe too. Well worth a visit if the weather is not suitable for walking along the beach.

Light of My Life

In Brighton by the sea.

The girl is taking a photo of her friend looking out to sea. I am taking a photo looking out to sea also but the picture also captures two images in the shiny balls. The balls are the focus of the picture but so is the girl. Who is this girl and where is she from? It would be great if she contacted me and we could maybe talk about who and what she was taking a photo of last Saturday at 4.30 pm. in Brighton.
