“There’s a red house over yonder,
That’s where my baby stays…”
– Jimi Hendrix
My homework for the weekend #photo101.
With a dash of red.

“Trees are sanctuaries.
Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth.
Trees snatched through the window of a speeding car.
Full of possibility.

Today’s challenge was to present architecture in mono.
Faced with a hectic day, the temptation to dig out an archive shot was strong, I have a large collection of such shots.
But…I wanted to enter into the spirit of things!
So, before leaving for work this morning, I stepped out into the rain and grabbed this grainy shot of the EU Parliament with my iPhone and then edited it with Silver Efex Pro.
I have featured this building, which is right outside my front door, in other posts and will again.

My last post for the weekend…I think…
I’ve had another try at time-lapse, read a lot about how to do it, and sadly have failed to apply most of what I have read – I need to work on reflections, choppy sequences, shutter speed and a zillion other things
But hey, Photo101 is about learning?
So, time for a Belgian beer to close down the evening and prepare for another week at work 😉

This is my response to the weekend “homework” on the WordPress Photo 101 course.
Today’s theme is “playing with light”.
I am thrilled by this challenge because for a while now I have snapped the sky through the window of my apartment and tweeted it…
So, with a few extra snaps from today, I have played with light to show you the sky over Elsene in the heart of Brussel.
Follow me on twitter @andytownend if you’d like to see the light keep changing 😉
Oh, and as a ps, if you hit refresh in your browser the image in the main circle will change…

Eyes wide open, trying to see.
Water running overhead.
Faint electrical hum.
Whiff of decay.
Shiver runs down my spine as I extend my finger.

I woke early this morning to see today’s #photo101 challenge was “warmth”.
Driving north along the motorway, with the fields covered in a blanket of mist, I wondered how to respond. And at the same wished the theme had been “misty”…or “cold”…
In the same meeting room all day, I lacked inspiration (for the theme anyway).
Taking a short walk at lunchtime, I was left cold by the sunlight and autumnal colours, they seemed too cliched, a little too obvious.
Then, back in the meeting room, I noticed the sun shining through the window and reflecting off the hot air radiators lining the walls.
So, I may be stretching a point, but here is my slice of “warmth” from an office complex just outside Amsterdam.
