critical clouds

seagulls swirl, screech in the sky

(new) rooftops

gritty, urban

misty ambiguity

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue.”

– Rainer Maria Rilke

“And a sentimentalist, my dear Darlington, is a man who sees an absurd value in everything, and doesn’t know the market place of any single thing.”

– Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere’s Fan

Not really sure about these.

Woke at four am with an idea.

Why not take a shot of a coin with the EU Parliament building in the background?

Not that hard to try, as the EU Parliament is right outside the window.

The scariest part of this (apart from the fact that I am dreaming of posts for #photo101)?

What if that euro coin fell off and landed on some poor soul’s head from the ninth floor?

If that had happened, I wouldn’t be writing this.

Penny euro for your thoughts?

With a dash of red.

This trip was supposed to be to the top of Parking 58 which offers the best views across the rooftops of Brussel.

A locked gate bent me out of shape – angular

So, I grabbed this shot, and wondered if I would ever use it.

And, now, I have.

My contribution to this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post at WordPress.

architecture and morality

“Sealand forgets her friends
She’ll not leave them again
Mother, sister and home
These arms fail you so”

Sealand – OMD – “Architecture and Morality” – 1981




This place has quite a history.
