10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5,......

No this is not a volcano.
All the hills and mountains sport hats.  
A different hat for a different day.  

My mini trek up Queens Town Hill.

I left the walk till later in the day and there was no one in the wood but me as I climbed the path to the top... about 1 and a half hours up through the Ghost trees and over the padded fir cone covered floor.  At one point I really picked up pace worried that it might get dark whilst I was in the wood .. a slight moment of mountain madness. All in all the trek was about 3and a half hours ... my knees gave in on the way down. OH JOY!

The ghost trees of Queenieville.

A sprinkling of STA for you.  
Is the word on the streets yet?

 I can feel myself improving all the time and I really feel I am pushing the timed art to its limits.

10 seconds is all it takes. 
To make ART! To TAKE ART! 
I am surprised I havent had a phone call from Saatchi yet.

Do you like my walking shoes/ disco boots?
I got a few funny looks at the top from some passing chaps but I am used to that.  

You can see where I taught the workshop from here if you squint.

Chow for now.
