The Monday Convergence may not always have something to do with prisons, but some amount to do with photography.

I hope that the (usually) two images and/or comment offered for side-by-side viewing will sustain you, for a while, with perplexment or amusement.

Anish Kapoor’s Temenos is the first of five public sculptures for the Teesside area from a £15 million ($25m) pot of gold. It is to be located in Middlehaven, near Middlesbrough. There are a few online resources for information, but the best discussion I found was on a public forum which you should look at (if you are not offended by colourful language). The words might be indecorous, but I totally understand the antipathy of some Teessiders. It’s a big femidom. Read Here.
