Sunday Scraps #19

A walk in 'Temple of the Winds' walk in Surrey.

Piece from the Tate Modern Bruce Nauman show that's now on.

My talented friend Jeremy drove us to ‘Temple of the Winds’ walk in Surrey after popping in to see Mary Fraser Tytler incredible terra cotta chapel. We also drove around the modernist  Alton Estate on the way back into town.
