Scale model of the Queensferry Crossing – Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

The Queensferry Crossing is the new road traffic bridge currently under construction to link the Lothians and Fife across the Firth of Forth. It is the third bridge to cross the estuary alongside the Forth Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge which it's meant to replace.

I can confidently say the real thing looks far less wobbly than this model. 😉

The bridge is due to open on 31 August 2017

Boy and tengu assisting an old puppeteer – Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

Boy and tengu assisting an old puppeteer – Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh

This piece is from Okimono in Japan and dates to the 19th century. A tengu is a mischievous trickster who preys on travellers. They are thought to be reincarnations of priests, atoning for past sins.

It is quite challenging to take shots of detailed pieces like this in museums where they keep the light deliberately low, luckily it turned out rather nice.

Soaking it up

words and lyrics by Jean-Loup

We've had a rather healthy balance of sunshine and rain which means our strawberries are doing beautifully this year. That's their third year crop and I think we'll have enough to possibly make jam or other yummy treats this year.

Maybe I should have planted more things earlier in the year but I have a bed full of peas and beans and that seems ok just now too.

Oh and I have beautiful roses I need to take pictures of 🙂
