Photographs of worn stone sea wall at Watchet. They bear the appearance of Beehive honey comb.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is a poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge written in 1797-98.
Coleridge lived in Nether Stowey and it was whilst here that he visited Watchet. It was the harbour at Watchet that provided the inspiration to write The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. His longest work.
The above statue commemorates Coleridge and his magnificent poem.
The poem can be found in its entirety here

This is murpworks! mu + rp = works.
murpworks is the creative home of artist mu and writer rp. Together, we make up murpworks (as we go along). mu draws, paints, animates & builds, rp photographs, writes & tries to co-ordinate. There are a whole load of influences – many and varied.
The picture says everything we want it to.
There’s animation in the form of a Walk Cycle, there’s anonymity but also a knowingness, it’s nowhere and everywhere, it’s cluttered but there are clear forms, it’s black and white but appears colourful…
The black and white picture was taken in Warminster, South West UK. It’s location was more quixotic, rather than exotic.

Walking on a sunny day, I pass a shadow on the wall. I return, the shadow’s gone. I can return another day but the shadow will have changed. The angle of the sun will have moved, the leaf pattern from the tree will have changed because it will have grown. It will never be the same again. I like that.
