Ornamental pond and captive balloon, "Fylingdales", Torre Abbey gardens, Torquay
The juxtaposition of the captive balloon (somewhat reminiscent of the Fylingdales early warning system when we were all under the cloud of an imminent Armageddon during the Cold War?) against the determinedly traditional ornamental pond at the corner of Torre Abbey Gardens is somehow fully reflective of the mixture of styles and the sense of confusion and lack of identity of our current age. It seems, too, that Torquay has lost its sense of identity.
