Having not been at the coast for some weeks, we took a day trip to Felixstowe to see the sea, eat fish and chips and hear the waves crashing on the beach. I have done a very pastel treatment on this beach huts image as the huts were largely painted in pastel colours so the treatment seemed appropriate.
Facing the Capitol Building is the Supreme Court, looking powerful under gathering clouds.
Reflections of the Capital Building. There are some nice reflective tiles outside the building.
In the past couple of years a new visitor attraction has been built in Singapore, near the Marina Sands Bay Hotel. Gardens by the Bay have two Eden Project style glazed domes and then an open garden which has some “living tree” structures which must be 50m tall with foliage grow up them and from which you can walk along a raised walkway. The Cloud Dome is cool (probably around 17 degrees) and there is a waterfall and some raised walkways, like in this picture. I would certainly recommend a visit for a few hours. I went in the early evening and watched a light show at 19.45. The Domes cost around $30 to visit.
As the winter drags on and I continually fail to get out and shoot anything new, I am left drawling my archives. This is one of my very old shots of the Millennium Bridge and the Sage in Gateshead.
We passed this book shop a number of times in Havana. The Ché stencil makes the doorway, I think.
Just an awesome building. I shot this in 2012. It is a combination of six images. I had to also do some photoshopping, which hopefully you can’t see. I would love to get back to have another go at this iconic image, but am pretty happy with this shot if I never get back.
The much photographed Selfridges building in the Bullring in Birmingham.
Taken in Christchurch New Zealand in 2013, this the roof of the Cardboard Cathedral, constructed of cardboard tubes after the massive earthquake in 2011. Hoping that is survived the recent quakes.
This walkway has recently been opened in London’s King’s Cross station. The colours cycle and there is lots of photo ops for a tripod carrying photographer. I was on an evening out with friends and was just carrying my point and shoot.
