Cath is a very historic rhino
When Jo and I walked around Birmingham last week, we were both struck by the architecture and interior of the library. We could both have spent hours there, but we dashed about, dazzled by the unexpected beauty in every direction. We tested funky chairs and colourful benches, took advantage of the facilities and peeped at Shakespeare’s memorial library. Here is a gallery of the interior, converted to black and white, I like the abstract look.
Jo, I can’t make any sense of the first picture, can you honey? I’ve tried turning it all ways!
Timeless: eternal, everlasting, perpetual, unchanging, unaffected by time or changing fashion.
Timeless is Paula’s theme for Black and White Sunday, and this is my entry.
This is William Morris wallpaper, that I saw in the dining room at Lanhydrock, a National Trust property in Cornwall. It’s actually two shades of blue, cream and with a tiny bit of pink. A timeless, classic design.
This weeks photo challenge has the theme of admiration, I have a tremendous admiration for those creative people centuries ago, who left us a legacy of treasure, in the UK and worldwide.
The embroidery around this four poster bed has graced the bed chamber for centuries, no daylight lamps or computerised sewing machines, just small hands and candlelight to work with. Click the link above to share whatever fills you with admiration!
Paula’s Black and White Sunday theme this week is ‘Rhapsody’, this is what she says about the meaning,
Defined primarily as
And this is my interpretation.
I’ve had Marina framed at last!
Cheri Lucas Rowlands says,
Artists are inspired by and capture the world around us: sculptors immortalize people with statues; painters record events in their masterpieces. What about the other way around? For this week’s theme, find inspiration in a piece of art, and go further: imitate it.
This painting by the German artist Wilhelm Zimmer, of a village band reminded me of a photo I took in Kent a couple of years ago. The two images were created more than a hundred years apart, but I think there are some similarities, do you?
Quiet a difficult challenge this week, the relentless wind and rain doesn’t make me want to go out to take photos!
Cheri at the Daily Post says.
With 2016 officially here, we face forward to take on what’s next. It’s a time of endings and beginnings, so I wanted a broad theme that could be simple, fun, and festive, but also complex and introspective. And so, circle it is.
I found this circle? a few days ago at Escot, in east Devon. It’s part of a sculpture that as a whole, I didn’t find very exciting, but cropping the photo turned out a bit better I think.
