Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

I wonder if you have ever heard of or seen a panopticon before.

This is one such structure, looking from the inside out.

It is sometimes called 'The Atom', as it has that sort of shape. It is a round structure, with many peep holes through which you can see different aspects of the landscape around my home village.

If you look at my workshop. you will see the panopticon in its entirety.

When I took the photograph, the panopticon was filled with water. It had been raining hard! I don't think the designers had factored in the fact that the upper holes let in water but the lower holes face up-hill and prevent the water from escaping!

Their mistake creates a great opportunity for an unusual photograph!

My warm regards, Bev :-)
