The weather has not been great, although there have been some dramatic skys as shown in this time lapse video by Maxim Sullivan

iron-stoneDramatic stories of tragedy, success, and bravery are all hidden in Dorset's remarkable heritage of signs in iron and stone. Many of these tablets and inscriptions are passed by daily, either on foot or in cars, people barely realising the extraordinary lives and events they commemorate.

Now their secrets are revealed by retired Dorset farmer and businessman, Michael Russell Wood, in his richly illustrated book "Dorset's Legacy in Iron and Stone".

Kris Dutson specialises in atmospheric landscapes, endeavouring to capture that elusive feel that is so important in a good photograph using the vagaries of the English weather to his advantage.

Here are some photographs by Tom Baker. Tom says "moody Colmers Hill photos (2009-2010) are the history of my attempts to capture the sun setting behind the top of the hill from East Street.

This happens twice a year, but knowing exactly when involves some serious calculations using Google Earth, Stellarium and school trigonometry (which I thought I'd never use) plus luck".

Set in July 1945, at a country house near London, celebrations for the Labour Party’s landslide election victory are in full swing. The lady of the house, Miss Julie, descends into the servants’ kitchen to seek out John, her father’s chauffeur.

Asynthome is a recent project by Bridport boy Luke Bennett now based in Berlin. Asynthome is an audio-visual performance in which Transforma and Yro turn the stage into a workshop of experimentation. A series of modular stations with prepared objects, light boxes, interactive sculptures and live cameras are used by the three players or operators' to create visual experiments which are projected directly on to the screen above them.
