photography101: weekend three two

“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?

photography101: architecture


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.
