Gallery Minimal

This is Marc's photo stream, as published on Flickr. It was last updated in Gallery Minimal on Fri Sep 30 2022 and is 365 pictures long.

Marc walks through his home city of London a lot, in between meetings with friends, not all of them of the human variety.

Since the onset of Covid in London, Marc has endeavoured to publish a picture a day. Supposed to keep the doctor away. So far, so good...

Septimius Severus …
comment on Flickr … by the time Lucius Septimius Severus, an African Roman Senator married to a Syrian Roman, had avenged his friend Publius Helvius Pertinax, defeated Pertinax’s three would be successors, and dissolved the murderous Praetorian Guard, he had turned the Roman Principate into a military dictatorship.

Helvius Pertinax …
comment on Flickr … almost rescued the Roman world from the depredations of Commodus’s megalomania. Unfortunately, state finances proved to be in an even worse state than expected by his co-conspirators. Failed negotiations with the Pretorian Guard about the donative they were promised for support lead to guards murdering him and putting the Purple for auction ! This may or may not be him actually. There’s still a lot of scholarly argument going on over his representation.

Roath Basin, Cardiff ...
comment on Flickr ... as seen from Cable Bridge. The area around Cardiff Docks was once referred to as Bae Teigr - Tiger Bay - because of how rough a neighbourhood it was supposed to be. By the time of the First World War, Cardiff Docks were moving nearly 10 million tons of coal per year from the Welsh mines to the rest of Britain and the world. These peaceful new developments are less than 20 years old, part of the complete redesign of Cardiff Bay at the turn of the Century. How times have changed...

A Bit of Sparring …
comment on Flickr … the King (right) engages in a short bit of friendly sparring with El Barbudo (left). They’re going through the motions, but in a fairly restrained way. El Barbudo is a bit of an enigma. He is older and heavier than the King, usually stays on his own at the fringe of the King’s herd, occasionally helps the King repulse the attempts of younger males to approach the does, and sometimes seems to enjoy provoking the King into mock bouts. I believe they’re mock because the real thing is a lot more intense and violent. .. shotraw,xt4,animals,cerf,royalparks,uk,kt8,london,hamptoncourt,bushypark,rutting,rut,cervuselaphus,reddeer,dscf5907
