One of the nice surprises of the area (Lack of research I think Neil!) was just wandering around the rusting remains of the factorys. (above and below)
The other joy of the place is a bit of quality people watching and taking in the, what to me at least is a, wide variety of different art. Some of which is in galleries which are universally welcoming, even to plebs like me. The rest is dotted around the streets (see below). Everything from cadged 2m high red plastic dinosaurs, to figures made from grains of rice, to communist style propaganda statues and graffiti.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
