More lovely graphics in the form of the sign for Trigas Ferretería (Ironmongers) that also doubles as a tourist shop as Arzua is for many pilgrims the last stopping point before the day long trek and culmination of the Camino de Santiago (into Santiago de Compostela)

devils and gods of electricity

A readymade piece of art if ever i saw it … and one of the many reasons i love India, you never know what you are going to meet around the corner. I guess there is a logic in placing your gods at the source of electric power…though considering the unreliability of electricity in general round here, it’s not working…anyway, i love it!

…and at the other end of the celestial spectrum…these are images of devils and it is customary to hang them outside your house to catch any evil before it gets into your home, you also often see them attached to the wheel mudflaps of lorries…

…and finally this beautiful piece of neon art for the telephone exchange in Gannavaram, i am never here to see it lit up at night in all its glory…check out the old school telephone…

sulking in portobello…

…sulking in portobello beach (Edinburgh) because my flight to Milan was cancelled due to giant Icelandic volcano ash cloud…however on reflection cancellation is much better than engine failure. So now apparently some flights are leaving again from Scotland…am off to try my luck at the airport…

inside the arcades on the seafront its as dark as it is bright outside it always reminds me of a David Lynchian world…

behind the neon signs

weird sea front architecture, this is a public toilet…
