Go to a modern art gallery, enter one of the rooms and gaze round. Whether you like the stuff or not there will be a picture that shouts out at you and draws you inexorably to it - it’ll be a Picasso.

Salthouse - Norfolk

Here's a nice picture by Max Angus – her latest. It's not evident from the picture but that duck pond is one of the largest along the north Norfolk coast – it didn't use to be until the storms of several years ago, when overnight it all got flooded and just stayed large. The ducks love it and they now appear to have come from miles around to sample its delights!

Never noticed that before – amazing what you can see in a picture. I bet you haven't noticed the two aliens wandering in the fields!

Thanks very much for the nudge from over on the Brexit diatribe thread. It's good to get away from the madding crowd.

BTW: aliens??

Captures the atmosphere of N Norfolk in winter just off the coast. Excellent. Do you know what location/area picture captures?
