Photo 101 Day Twelve: Architecture & Monochrome

“From geometric patterns on skyscrapers to the ironwork on historical buildings, there are many opportunities to capture the beauty and complexity of architecture.”

It was a busy wedding day so I took a few minutes after the sun had set to take some photos of the fountain in all its glory and realised that the picture was perfect for the architecture and monochrome theme. Its the beautiful curve of the wall and the exactness of the little pillars on the balcony edge. Stunning is not a word I use often because stunning is quite a gig to live up to but stunning, this is.

The only thing I can’t decide is if I prefer the colour or the black & white version. What do you think?

Photo 101 Day Nine: Warmth & the Quality of Light

“Today, capture an image of warmth, using the sun as your source.”

Day Nine, I’m on a roll. Only 5 more glorious days to go. I decided to focus on this beautiful bunch of roses clipped from our garden. It featured in one of my previous photo roundup post, with me, which you can see – here. Believe it or not.. That is just a cheap plastic jug I keep for making pimms in bulk. To me it helps to showcase the flowers. Just shows, you don’t have to go out and BUY flowers to have a beautiful bunch. In fact one of the things I love is the thought that someone has gone and hand picked some flowers for me. Take note Angus… 😉

I used my telephoto lens to make sure the flowers were the main focus but allowed the background to create the perfect backdrop. The roses have the most amazing soft and sort of.. fluffy appearance and the setting sun was the piece de resistance, as they say.
