    You made good use of your 12 hours there, Brian. That sphere looks to be quite a feat of engineering to have all those reflective plates cast and fitted with such precision.

      A very interesting set.

      Not how I remember Bristol from my one and only visit, many years ago.
      The second one with reflections of reflections, as it were is very well spotted.

      That globe made me think of "Strictly Come Dancing" on steroids.

      Thanks for sharing.

          Re: 12 hours in Bristol

          Bristol looks a great place to visit. I love the morning light shot, shadows, flare and everything and the giant sphere is amazing. Who is the statue in No 5? It looks like one of the Pilgrim Fathers, but I thought they sailed from Plymouth. I love the contrast in the last shot between a contemporary Prezzo and the cobbled street and industrial chimney. Are they old (original) cobbles or are they a modern attempt to re-create a past heritage? It look like you employed a rather fierce graduated filter in this one but somehow it seems to emphasise the theme of contrasts.

              There not too bad considering the camera you were using
              Seriously though, it is a very nice set and Bristol does look to be a very interesting place.

                Re: 12 hours in Bristol

                I've been to Bristol quite a few times in the last year but never had the opportunity to really explore in detail. I did post some shots of the Wills building last year (remember Wills cigarrette cards?).

                I've wandered past Bristol Bridge and through Castle Park on my back to one of the numerous car parks (in this case the Galleries). I'm guessing your riverside shot was somewhere close. Alas in my case I did not have a camera to hand.

                  who mentioned the camera!....the SD card has spent three years in an Oly body so I think it qualifies for the pictures to be on here!
                  The dramatic tone is a bit fierce i know
                  I love this time of year and the challenging light it brings.

                  Stricktly on steroids...I like that.

                  I only went for a walk to find the SS Gt Britain, found it was surrounded by a tourist fortress and decided not to pay to go in as it was so late in the afternoon - I think I was the only one there. Nevertheless it was good to discover these scenes.

                  Thanks for your comments...especially your local knowledge Thomas
