I spotted these balled topiary box trees in the city centre - with a dusting of snow on top, they reminded me of traditional Christmas puddings. I have one of these (tree, not pudding!) in my back yard, but it long ago ceased to be perfectly spherical. The red box behind them is a small modern mail box, outside the National Media Museum. I suppose it's handy for tourists to post their postcards: "Just visited Bradford's National Media Museum... it's great! Really interesting..."
When I'm in Bradford I usually try to find time to visit the Media Museum. I consider myself very lucky that, of all the national museums, Bradford has the one in which I'm most interested - Film, Photography and TV. This time I saw an exhibition: 'Land revisited' by Fay Godwin (1931-2005), one of Britain's greatest landscape photographers. Do click the link to see some of her incredible black and white images. The exhibition is well worth a visit if you're in the area - if not, explore the website, as there's some interesting stuff on there, including photos and some biographical material about Fay Godwin.
