Michaela and Suzy in Cloud 23. First time I'd been to Cloud 23 which is half way up the Beetham Tower at the top of the Hilton Hotel. The views are fantastic. I'd love to go back there sometime soon with my proper camera. I did take the compact camera so I'll post one of those photos. This is taken with the iphone.

I went up the tower yesterday to get some photos of our bells at Sacred Trinity and here is one of the photos. We have a pretty good set of bells and a nice lot of ringers who practise on a Tuesday evening. I keep meaning to have a go myself sometime. Bell ringing is a very mathematical process that's quite intriguing. As a Brian Eno fan, I find his "Bell Studies For The Clock OF The Long Now" really good and helps to understand a bit about bell ringing. Read about that album here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_07003:_Bell_Studies_for_the_Clock_of_the_Long_Now
