not by me -

The images in this series are watercolours by the father of a school friend.  I've shared them in memory of him and to encourage and inspire people who see them.

Derek Buckler was an architect by profession which is demonstrated in his lovely depiction of the buildings.  His figures that populate some of the pieces are less confident but they add to the charm of the work.  It's a pleasure to see a small part of his legacy here.  Thank you Alison for passing them on to me.
