Photo365 - 344 - Empowerment

Empowerment is the title of this sculpture over the Brayford near the Waterside Shopping centre in Lincoln. There's a standard view of this so I tried to get it from a different angle...below. I don't think this angle actually works as well

Photo365 - 341 - The Arsenal Trees

Photo365 - 340 - Christmas Lights

While at Donna Nook I spotted this interesting textured cabbage...the Savoy (Capitata var. sabauda L.). In the supermarket they're normally less interesting, but a farmer sells fresh produce at the car park field of Donna Nook.

Photo365 - 336 - Paper cuts

A sheet of A 4 paper cut into five strips and placed on top of another and lit from above left. It's a bit of an optical illusion. No paper was folded. Each of the five strips were taped at one end and placed on their edge so they were about 1.5in high.
