I'm humming a tune from Chris Isaak's 1991 "Wicked Game" album. The new hotel is the taller building towards the left. Photo taken at Brayford Pool, Lincoln.

The variety of vehicles ... the wide roadway ... the desert backdrop ... it all says Mad Max to me.

Running Man is a sculpture by Klaus Weber and is part of his exhibition "If you leave me I'm not coming". Running Man has continuously rotating legs and is like a cartoon character who has run off a cliff: suspended for instant with running legs before realising where he is and plummeting. Weber asks if society is in a similar state: suspended in disbelief on the edge of disaster?
