Oooh, the excitement! Down a teeny bit today.
I’ve been having a quiet day in today, what with it being a bank holiday. I did contemplate going somewhere, but I couldn’t quite decide where, so I didn’t.
What I did do was another twenty minute exercise bike session, Garmin evidence available for anyone who likes graphs.
I haven’t gathered enough tuits to sort out all the Middlesbrough pictures, but here’s one that I was inspired to take after seeing a few pictures on Flickr. Temenos is a huge sculpture by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond, which is the first in a series to be installed in Teesside – the Tees Valley Giants. Quite apart from being huge, it’s a sweeping, elegant, glorious piece that made me grin like a lunatic when I saw it.
And not only is it a lovely thing in its own right, it also acts as a frame, allowing images like this to be created:
 The shape of it would suggest that he was involved to anyone who’s seen his other work – one was installed in the then empty shell of the Baltic Flour Mill before it was transformed into the Baltic gallery.
 Any suggestion that this is my normal state will be ignored, and you know who you are.
