gateshead millennium bridge at full tilt (bridge.jpg)

before i left newcastle i went to see the gateshead millennium bridge do its tilting thing. it’s spectacular though it would have been nice to see some river traffic underneath it, this just seemed to be a practise run.

also in this group of pictures is a strange round sort of sundial thing we found lurking outside the baltic flour mill gallery which contains william blake’s poem:

no bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings we can’t work out what the strange sundial thing is for at all. it looks incomplete, what will it be?
