Bristol

Bristol is my staging post to fly to Toulouse, so it’s always a good place to spend a few days. It has some great street art (home of Banksy). I got to see some being made…. well it’s really an ad for a new beer being made by the wonderful Ostrich Hotel.

I also got to finally visit the Bristol M Shed. It’s a relaxed, informal museum about Bristol. I was very interested to see the exhibit on street protests. In this case it was about the lack of disabled access to the new Arnolfini Art Gallery cafe.

Ovunque Proteggi

This is a song I recorded with my musical partner in crime Dom Di Dato. It’s by an Italian singer called Vinicio Caposella. I’m using the Youtube version because we’ve agreed to pass the royalties (if any) over to the original songwriter. We’re very happy to do that.

The images were all made on Dangar Island, Australia. The edit software is Philmora X, by Wondershare.

Art School – A Song

This is a song I made when I was much much younger. The singer is the wonderful Lizzy Hogan, Ric Grudzinskas played bass, George Sutanovic drums and Linz Norris and myself on guitars. I’ve been making low budget, lo-fi clips to post stuff on Youtube. The images are from my Street Art photo file.

The song is copyright J P Horsam/I M Hogan 1979-2021 as updated. Please refer to my About page for full copyright details regarding the photos.

A Feast of Doors

I’ve always been fascinated by doors…. especially old ones. France is a doorhound’s paradise. Here’s a collection, from an ornate cathedral door (Limoges) to simple hole-in-the-wall arrangements.

There’s one from Exeter Cathedral (not in France!)  that has an ancient cat door. It allows the cathedral cats to get into the organ loft to deal with the mice in there.
