Architecture & Monochrome

Completely off topic, did you know there are a billion quick tutorials on YouTube to help edit your WP dashboard to make it more personal & user-friendly? Amazing!

And now for another shot of Harpa Concert Hall, possibly my second-favourite building after anything Gaudi-designed.

Harpa, Reykjavik, Iceland

I didn’t notice the reflection of the windows behind me on the glass in front of me. Eagle-eyed daughter to the rescue! I tweaked the contrast to hide the cables holding the birds.

I’m stretching the topic and calling the next shot Natural Architecture….mmmmmph!

Trees

My dancing trees, now in B&W

All this B&W photography is making me feel very arty-farty indeed! Heaven help us if I ever get a real camera.

Warmth & Light

Beetroot juice

The dregs of my beetroot juice, backlit in this morning’s sunshine

Þjóðminjasafnið, Reykjavík, Iceland

Window at Þjóðminjasafnið, Reykjavík, Iceland – it was a very grey day, so I was surprised to see how warm the colours glowed! It’s true what they say about the light in Iceland.

Strawberry laces

Quick snooze on the Embankment, in the first of the spring sunshine. Yes, that’s a strawberry lace hanging out her mouth.

Big & Point of View

I was temporarily stumped this morning until I trawled through the phone, and found three photos to share for today’s topic. Enjoy!

Harpa Concert Hall, Reykjavik, Iceland

I had to lie on the floor to get this shot of the inside of the Harpa Concert Hall in Iceland. The handblown glass seagulls were an added bonus!

London, UK

The London Eye or a giant bicycle wheel? It’s fun playing tourist on the wrong side of the river!

South London, UK

The Shard, soon to be joined by Baby & Mini Shards
