Painting Charles Darwin with Light by Steve Morris.

The statue of Charles Darwin as an older man sitting down outside the library is very well known in the town. Perhaps slightly less well known is the statue at Shrewsbury School, unveiled by Sir David Attenborough in 2000. Here, Darwin is portrayed as a much younger man walking with his staff, satchel and scientific tools over rocks and lizards. On his face you can see the wonder and determination of a man about to change the world with scientific ideas that even today some people refuse to accept.

Suzuki Swift Sport

I’ll let you in to a little secret. This is not the first time I’ve driven a Suzuki Swift Sport, neither is it the second. Almost exactly a year ago Suzuki kindly invited me out to Barcelona, to the Swift Sport’s launch, so as I could get an idea of what it was going be like before they put it on sale in the UK. I was impressed, so much so that I wrote “the Swift Sport makes the ideal travelling companion” The weather, I might add was, fantastic.
