While visiting Park Hill I spotted that thousands of hexagonal nuts have been discarded along the length of the new steel fence.  Not someone who likes to see things simply going to waste I thought I’d re-purpose a few and documented the results.

Dan is back on the River Don creating his wonderful sculptures from materials found in the river.  He created his first set of temporary sculptures late in 2016.  Over the winter months the flow and the rising of the river has returned them to the river bed.

Because of the harm it can do to humans E.Coli generally gets a bad press.  It wasn’t until I saw this sculpture and the description in the last photograph that I learned how scientists have been able to separate the good from the bad and the ugly…
