Image by the justified sinner Gloriously overblown fountain on Glasgow Green dedicated to James Martin, the philanthorpic socialist, not the vile "celebrity chef" who drives recklessly, injures cyclists and somehow or other gets away with it despite bragging about it publicly in a column in the fascistic Daily Mail. Cast by Walter McFarlane's Saracen Ironworks. The central section should be surmounted by a bust of Martin but in typical glasgow shitty council style, it has been "lost". That is shorthand for "stolen by one of the corrupt members of the council". Taken with Panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens on Panasonic GH2.

Most primitive peoples have an instinctive dread I of portraiture as a sort of blasphemy. Perhaps the early ] growth of facial portraiture at Rome was helped by the worship i of a mans genms, his luck, his spirit, his guardian angel, iThe genius naturally was depicted in the likeness of the man himself. So the imagines in a Roman atrium were no mere \ portraits of defunct ancestors. Rather they were visible pre- Isentments of invisible presences.
