Weight and Stuff Report – 20 June 2013

Up a wee bit today, mutter, mutter.

I didn’t have the time for a camera walk today, so here are some more photographs from yesterday. These are all from the vicinity of Northumbria University.

I’ve remarked on these lights before. I haven’t seen them at night, but I presume the idea is that the lamp shines on to the disk which casts diffuse light onto the ground. I still think it looks like some kind of alien wossname making an offering to its alien deity….

An offering?

An offering?

The windmill thingy wasn’t very active, which makes a change…

There are a number of these rough humanoid sculptures around the campus. I find this one oddly pleasing

Not a lot of words today, but I hope the pictures make up for it!
