“Mrs Hearty’s” design was initially inspired by Minky’s artistry in painting Wessex Heartbeat’s little rhino, “Hearty”. The student artists were keen to show synergy between the two rhinos, but also wanted to meld the colour and feel of the African origins of rhinoceros.

“The design is based on the protective clothing that must be worn when carrying out highway maintenance, construction. The the bright yellow material will act as a highlight drawing attention to the “zero harm” logo that Balfour Beatty Living Places use on work jackets. This idea draws upon a sculpture I made some years ago when I designed and made clothing for several large trees as part of a fashion show, held in the centre of Southampton.” – David McDiarmid

Vandals had already stolen his hard hat when I took this . I wish people would leave things alone.

I found a few more from my trip to Bergen that I would like to share with you. These I took with my Leica MP and Summilux 35mm f1.4 (As far asI remember).They could have been shot with the Nikon 20mm on an adapter I didn’t make a note.Still I I spent a pleasant hour or so this morning scanning a few few negs and I thought I’d share them. The back streets of Bergan are a very interesting street walk I didn’t see so many tourists that day while wandering the back streets There are other more famous tourist magnets in the town itself . So my wife and I had it mostly to ourselves.
