landscape smoke St Valentine

Posted by Picasa Landscape with figures 2.

All day smoke has been rising from The Common where they have been burning brushwood. The smell floats over the town, and brings Peter out of Hall's Bookshop to see if anything is on fire in the upper storeys  of the shop where workman are repairing the roof.

In honour of St Valentine the Oxfam bookshop in Chapel Place displays appropriate books in the  window, or ones which are apparently appropriate.  Included is the Virago Book of Love and Loss which could be regarded with irony by lovers and their supposedly benign patron..

That is an amzing painting. The colours and mosaic form combine in a way that fascinates.
