We went down to Portsmouth as my husband had organised a fund raising dinner for the 1805 club(a Nelson society) which was being held in the Royal Navy Museum, a great honour.It was to raise funds to repair the tomb of Sir Henry Bayntun, who was an Admiral in Nelson`s fleet at Trafalgar,he is buried at bath. We were drummed into dinner by the Cumberland Guard shown on the right.

A model of Nelson and a mask of his face, he was quite tiny and when you see his clothes they look as though they could belong to a child.

A shot of the rigging which i am going to use in a Displacement map, and the Victory at night

I do love the shape & texture of artichokes and sea holly

The curly leaves will make a good displacement map too.

What a lovely trip, Pippa, it must have been posh to have been drummed into dinner.
Love your picks of the artichokes and sea holly.
