Demolition….no entry…..

A large security fence keeps people out of the area. There are always sections that you can watch through though. I loved the way the sign could be seen against the backdrop of the demolition and the placement of the lock.(something slightly less arty tomorrow.)

One of the worst aspects of the demolition process is the amount of ‘rats with wings’ that are in the area. I was sitting watching the demolition the other day,turned round and suddenly felt I was in an Alfred Hitchcock film! Horrible creatures.

Not only is the Cluny a great bar and a great venue for seeing bands,but it is also a fine art gallery! Lots of art work on the walls and sculptures dotted around,plus a gallery space between the bar and the music room.

A couple of pics from the Cluny this weekend. As most people know this is one of my favorite watering holes and also a brilliant music venue.

Which Way?

Another one of those great pieces of art hidden away. I love the simplicity of it.
