A lovely autumn day again...

My favourite telegraph pole was looking particularly good on the way home...


This evening we drove to Glasgow for a concert in this weekend's "Minimalism" series...
 

We were at the Old Fruitmarket for Icebreaker's performance of Eno's music accompanying a screening of Al Reinert's film, "For All Mankind"...



Comprising NASA footage from the manned missions to the moon which took place between 1968 and 1972, the film provided a moving backdrop to some of my favourite ever music...

I have the full DVD at home - tonight's was an edited version - but, nonetheless this was an inspiring spectacle enjoyed by a packed audience...

Of course, as ever, there was the odd disrespectful fidgeting idiot amongst us but I did my best to put that out of my mind as I enjoyed the performace...
Back home just after midnight...

Excellent stuff...

The right stuff...
Highlight of the Day : Minimalism for all mankind...
