  11. Just down on the cliffs close to where I used to live in West Cornwall, was the ‘Heinz’ monument (see Wikipedia link below), which looks so totally different from your photo Ruth. But I really like the grittiness of industrial photos such as this one of yours :-)

    • Thanks I had no clue about this monument but enjoyed seeing the photo and learning of the Heinz donation. The weather added a lot to the Heinz at night photos. I donated the framed photo and it went for a tidy sum at auction and although I didn’t personally receive a cent, it felt quite validating.
