Bus stop with a view, Isle of Harris
I’ve just spent a week on the
Isle of Harris, in the Outer Hebrides. It is a very striking place, full of beautiful beaches and remote, rocky landscapes. Also home to Isle of Harris Gin, with its beautiful bottle, and Harris Tweed (of which more later).

For more Harris photos,
John Maher (ex-Buzzcocks drummer) is now a photographer based there. His work features superb shots of Harris and surrounding islands. I enjoyed spotting some of the locations, like unexpected Santa.
I can’t walk past an old Open (or Closed) sign without taking a photo.
There is something wonderful about
Urban Goals. A nationwide survey of goalposts, both planned and handmade, by Liverpool photographer Michael Kirkham.
Also very enjoyable on Twitter
