Here’s a bit of a break from ‘series’ shots. I just had to post this because it’s so amazing. A city of 72,000 biscuits in Selfridges built by Chinese artist Song Dong and a team of biscuit builders. I took … Continue reading
Ok, so I know this isn’t very relevant for Valentine’s, but there you go, you can’t have everything. This was taken at Brighton beach over the weekend and as before I have no idea what this is. Maybe Michelle can … Continue reading
I spent the weekend in Brighton and although I didn’t get much use out of the camera I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. We stayed at Blanch House which was fantastic and if you ever go for a weekend I’d highly … Continue reading
Ok, I think I’ve got this right… This is a Guardian Lion, or Shizi and they are placed (in pairs) to the entrance of buildings to protect the structure and dwelling. In this case a Chinese restaurant. This particular lion … Continue reading
Well, having had a very busy weekend where the camera didn’t feature at all I’m left with scouring the archives. So here’s another shot from the windows at Seldridges which didn’t make it into the last set of posts. Everything … Continue reading
This is the final shot from the series of Selfridges windows and I wanted to post it because I have no idea what’s going on. Well, I do. He (or she?) is trying to look up her skirt, but he’s … Continue reading
This is the second shot from the Selfridges window displays. This particular window was around the side entrance and tucked away where the staff go into the store and I’m glad I wandered past it. It had such an angelic … Continue reading
I was quite surprised and pleased at the number of comments on yesterday’s shot. So I went out today looking for more reflections in puddles, but the light wasn’t right and I couldn’t find anything of interest. Whilst crouching at … Continue reading
Firstly, thank you all so much for the comments on yesterday’s shot. I really appreciate getting the feedback. Secondly, colour wise, this is in stark contrast to yesterday’s image, but for some unexplainable reason I really like it. It’s from … Continue reading
I suspect for most people this is going to fall squarely into either the “Love It!” or “Hate It!” category. It was taken at the Kew Gardens. Chihuly Exhibition. I was hoping to stay a little later when these glass … Continue reading
The second shot from inside the Tate Modern. If you’ve not been to see this installation you really should go. It’s wonderfully simple, yet amazing and vast. You can just wander around these structures for ages. Taking care to avoid … Continue reading
This was taken in the turbine hall at the Tate Modern. It’s an installation called EMBANKMENT commissioned by Unilever and undertaken by Racheal Whiteread. This only a very small part of it, as you’ll see by tomorrow’s post.
This was taken at Winchester Cathedral. There are quite a few stained glass windows in the Cathedral, but this one caught my eye the most, even more than the grand window, because of the light coming through and the deep … Continue reading
We visited Florence on Saturday, or Firence as the Italians like to spell it. I was a bit disappointed as it was overcast all day so there were no opportunities for shots of the stunning churches and cathedrals against blue … Continue reading
At the moment things seem to be getting the better of me, so the photography is taking a back seat. However, I did say I would post a picture of the painting that this paint brush painted. There were lots … Continue reading
This exhibition is at the Natural History Museum until the 18th of September and you have to go. You weren’t actually allowed to take photographs, but with the camera sat on one of the seats I fired off a few … Continue reading
I wasn’t able to post anything yesterday so I’m posting this second shot of the Keith Haring sculptures. I couldn’t decide whether I preferred this shot or the previous.
These Keith Haring sculptures are on display at the River Terrace, Somerset House. If you’ve never heard of Keith Haring you will definitely have seen images of these “Three Dancing Figures” because they have been used everywhere and are simply … Continue reading
Another shot taken on the South Bank at the weekend. This girl was copying two paintings, by Sandro Botticelli, side by side on canvas taped to the ground. She had finished The Birth of Venus and was completing this piece … Continue reading
Just something I saw last week whilst I was strolling. I can’t even remember what park this was in or who it was by. Poor show. I’ll try and find out.
I got no time yesterday to get any shots and I’m finding it hard to pick something from the archives at the moment. This was taken last week in Paddington Street Gardens. It’s of a marble statue called Street Orderly … Continue reading
This was taken some time ago and has sat in my possibles folder until now. I like the lines, light, reflections and colours. But most of all it means something to me because I love the space. It was taken … Continue reading
This was on the Southbank in London a few weekends ago. And the sky was that clear. Visit the site weeeman.org
