View From The Bus

Gosford Street and Far Gosford Street


I am on the top deck of a bus leaving Coventry City Centre
heading down Gosford Street (above) towards Far Gosford Street (below).


Next trip I'm going to jump off the bus and have a closer look
at these old buildings currently being restored.

The modern buildings in the first photograph are
student accommodation.

Have a good weekend :).

On A Windy Day

 Coombe Country Park


I'm learning that some of these
birds have similar markings.
I think this is a Coal Tit.

Reconciliation

Coventry Cathedral Ruins


Sculpture by Josefina de Vasconcellos
placed in Coventry Cathedral ruins in
1995, 50 years after the end of WWII


For a short period of time this sculpture
was moved to the new cathedral for safekeeping
while the floor of the old cathedral was being restored.






The wording reads:

Reconciliation

In 1995, 50 years after the end of the Second World War 
this sculpture by Josefina de Vasconcellos has been 
given by Richard Branson as a token of reconciliation. 

An identical sculpture has been placed on behalf
of the people of Coventry in the Peace Garden, Hiroshima, Japan.

Both sculptures remind us that, in the face of destructive forces,
human dignity and love will triumph over disaster 
and bring nations together in respect and peace.
