Eye

Victoria Terrace, Beaumaris - originally 10 houses but only one remains, the others are now appartments - was designed in 1833 by Joseph Hansom (of horse drawn cab fame). He also built the Victorian goal 1829 and a Hall and Hotel in the town. The wheel, known as the Beaumaris Eye, is there for two weeks over the visit of the olympic flame and the annual, week long, music festival.

This is really a wonderful shot, Mair - I love the way the long line pulls your eye down into the photo.

I love the whole perspective and the texture of the stone walls next to the majestic building. Where is this Mair, Britain, Scotland, Wales, Ireland. I'm a little thrown off by Ann Jones comments.

@ptowncook Thank you for your kind comments. It's Beaumaris, Anglesey, North Wales. Ann asked me (in Welsh as it's our first language and what we always speak together) if we could see the world from the top?! And said that they had forgotten it was there. The bridge she mentions is a few miles down the Menai straits that seperate Anglesey from the mainland and can be seen here in the mist http://365project.org/mejbronant/365/2012-02-06 and in the sun http://365project.org/mejbronant/365/2011-05-02

cool - is this a permanent fixture? I didn't see it when I was there a couple of months ago - maybe I wasn't looking!!

@sparkle No, just two weeks - I don't think you could have missed it!
