lester kong - stoke-on-trent 2

Lester Kong has sent us some more photographs of his beauty spots in Stoke-on-Trent.First He has given us his magnet attached to the Oatie Mostons sign. He must really love Staffordshire oatcakes! Yummy!

Here Lester has attached the magnet to a shoe advert - so he must really like yellow wellies. He must have used some blu tak - magnets don't stick to plastic! That's another good idea.

And here Lester has superimposed the magnet onto a picture of the demolition going on around the Clough Street area of Hanley. Thanks Lester - keep 'em coming in!

lester kong - stoke-on-trent 1

This is Lester Kong's beauty spot - a nightclub sign in Hanley, or maybe he just means Stoke-on-Trent in general?

So we are really pleased to announce that the first sets of photos are now in.
Michael Callan - poet from City Voices has been out and about with his magnet, and has come up with an ingenious way of using it - he has attached it to a paintbrush and can then put it in front of his chosen beauty spot and snap away - this means he doesn't have to rely on finding a magnetic surface!This first set is the view East and North East from Hartshill Park - click on the image for a closer view.

This one you may recognise as the A500.

And this set of three show the Canalsides of Stoke.
Michael took these photographs with a 'throwaway camera.' showing that you don't even need to be digital to join the project. Looking forward to seing the 'Green Fist' photograph that Michael will be adding later.
