Monoliths, Militant? Modernist?

Also, revisited some of my favourite cranes at the docks. Still wondering how or if the cranes tie in with the fortifications in my practice - both can be m onoliths and dinosaur-like in the landscape I guess. I'm reading Owen Hatherley's Militant Modernism......

Guernsey Trip

A return trip to Castle Cornet, infact for a wedding, and a chance to see some of my favourite WW2 fortifications, built amongst the centuries old stones and battered by the sea. Anna, Maria and Frieda still resonate with the brasher WW2 American nose-art pictures of 'girls'.
