“…This book is a logical extension of that established tradition of working outdoors in the garden. It contains a range of projects, from the simple to the more complicated, and shows you how to made a variety of structures, including containers, seats, trelliswork and even a summer house…”

#16. Two pictures- same theme, different perspectives. At 18, Mike Brodie hopped a train and spent months riding the rails all the while photographing his fellow travelers. His youth allowed him to capture those close to his own age…these wanderlust kids riding away from or riding to something. Brodie’s image (above) has no train tracks yet we know where we are. Two male occupants are separated by the sheer size of the rail car, the vast landscape and even their own vantage points. Behind them is a long line of cars. Horace Bristol’s picture (below) depicts a single man living the sort of transient train life that was reflective of so many during the hard depression years of the 1930s. His shot is from the tracks with the familiar line of cars. Bristol’s rider is either catching the train or jumping from it.
