A change of direction

This post serves two ends. It gives me the opportunity to share this video, which predates the postcard images shown so far. Again related to journey, this piece recordsthe journeys of children visiting Italy. The second purpose is to try video within a blogger blog.

A change of colour

A new look using Blogger in draft. I still need to do some work on customisation, but there it is so far.
Now two more images from the project, but not included in the matrix in the exhibition. These should be the last before a change to the handwritten/lettered bookwork to come.

This would link the postcard of Saron with the postcard of the boot print.

And this from the lagoon around Venice, but the link would have to be longitude and latitude rather than OS map reference.

Out of Sequence

Midday Friday, 
Dear KB, A sharp shower allowed me to stop for a pint in Llangadog. Landlady busy with her bible. We fell out, her being a Methodist. Couldn't finish the bitter - thnakfully rain stopped. 

The text and image are missmatched. The text is tied to Llangadog the image from further along the route to Swansea at Saron. As you will note from the dates this piece of work is old and I am not sure, without further reference, where this image and text fitted into the narrative. The work is complete in this form. My intention from 2007 is realised, at last. - KB
Saturday p.m. 
Dear KB, Arrived Swansea; staying at the Mackworth Arms. Had to press the staff to get my boots repaired in time for Sunday worship. 
Regards GB
Friday p.m. The Inn at Gutter Vawr 
Dear KB, The locals were a bit wary of me at first, but I think I brought them round. Still wet, hope for better tomorrow. 
Regards GB
Friday P.M. 
Dear KB, The night is coming on fast and I am uneasy about the mist pouring down the mountain. Looking forward to some warmth at the Inn. 
Regards GB

Dear GB, Arrived at the car park just up the road from Tro'r Gwcu. Bumped into Viv and Delyth taking in the view and enjoying the peace. Wind still sharp so no ice creams today.
Regards KB.

Dear GB, The cold wind has given me earache. Surprising the number of cars on this mountain road. On to the top, then to the car park. 
Regards KB
10 March 2007.
Dear GB, It is about this point that I wish I had kept up my walking like you have done. Spent too much time reading. Fine day though, wind a little chilly. 
Regards KB

Dear GB,  Llangadog - weather fine and bright - warm for the time of year. While snapping away I noticed the boulders around the village green. Might prove inconvenient for your chums. 
Regards KB

Try Again

Another reason for using this blog was to learn about blogger as a medium for publishing. To understand how it works. One problem already is the way that posts are published and the difficulty of moving the post around. You may have noticed the blip. Try again.
