I took some photographs quite a few weeks ago that I’ve been meaning to share with you. Misty arrived the next day…and so has kinda taken the limelight ever since. (I’m pleased to say she is doing wonderfully and back to her normal naughty kitten self completely!)

We now live a stones throw (as the crow flies) from Yorkshire Sculpture Park – and heard about a beautiful exhibition by Jaume Plensa. Despite meaning to go for ages…it just hadn’t happened…and knowing it was due to close we made an impromptu visit…with camera in tow! Sadly, we found that the main exhibitions had indeed finished just a few days prior – although there were still a few pieces of his work dotted around the park’s landscape. I took photographs of these instead as well as some other images from around the beautiful park.

I just think his sculptures are so stunning. The sculpted letters of this one represents the cells found within the human body which are over 60% water. The white letters and hollow structure invite the viewer to go and look inside whilst reflecting on the relationship between human beings and water. The sculpture was made particularly beautiful against the backdrop of an afternoon’s setting sun.

The park really is worth a visit – so please check it out should you ever find yourself in West Yorkshire. It has a beautiful visitor centre too, complete with obligatory cafe avec balcony – and a shop full of scrumptious things…
