jane o'leary - bristol, uk

jane o' leary has used her magnet to highlight the city's ability to offer spaces of rest and contemplation amongst the hustle and bustle.

This is a picture taken in Castle Park, Bristol. In the 80s and 90s, I worked in various office blocks in the centre of the city and this park was somewhere to retreat to on my own at lunchtime, to get away from the noise. It was a constant relief when everything else kept changing. In summer, I would sit on a bench with my back to the ruined church and breathe in the scent from the herb gardens.
