photography101: architecture

IMG_4500

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.

photography101: warmth (a hint of)

IMG_4453.JPG

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.
