My strange unearthly beauty

Some people have made kind comments about the picture at the top of this blog. To set the record straight:

I wasn’t levitating.

I was really there, not Photoshopped in later. What wasn’t there was the laptop – I had to hold my hands in typing position above my lap, much to the amusement of the builders just out of shot in our new £14m learning and teaching building opening later this year*

It isn’t a ‘lost Ultravox album cover’.
