Lens-Artist Challenge

This week it’s Amy’s turn to choose the theme for the challenge, and I could post lots for architecture. I pulled out photos from various places around the world but then thought of Mucem, a place I visited last year and really fell in love with.

Built in 2013, the museum stands guard at the end of the harbour and is linked to the 17th century Fort St Jean, by a footbridge. It’s a big cube, covered by a dark lattice that frames the views through to the sea. It was built on reclaimed land and when you’re there it feels almost as if you’re on the water.

In the background, the Roman Catholic Cathedrale La Major is Byzantine-Roman Revival style, with green and white stone that reminds me of Florence.

Between the two buildings, old and new, stands the Villa Mediterranee. Not visible in my photo, there’s a large cantilever over a pool,which has a glass panelled floor if you’re brave enough to walk across. I wish I’d gone inside.

There’s still time to enter and Amy’s beautiful photos were taken at the wonderful Machu Picchu.

      1. Yes, of course- I replied last night. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ And I didn’t mean this year! I did forget to say, though, that one of the things that has seemed to help is putting up 2 family photos- one of Dad, looking so happy with his brothers and sisters, and a group of us at Lisa’s wedding. Somehow it makes it feel like home. πŸ™‚ Love you, hon!

  1. What an architecture design. Great capture, Gilly. “…feels almost as if you’re on the water”, that is so cool! Thank you so much for joining in!

I would love to hear from you . . .
