The Jumping Rabbit (WPC – Variations on a Theme)

This restaurant’s exterior really caught my eye as we strolled through the streets of old Quebec City. Its whimsy reminded me so much of all the shenanigans of Peter Rabbit.

If only we’d had time to have a meal at this restaurant then I could have seen if this truly was inspired by Beatrix Potter or it was simply my imagination running wild.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is Variations on a Theme.

Decaying Beauty (WPC – Weathered)

This very weathered wall in Tallinn, Estonia intrigued me immensely with its varying degrees of texture. At first glance this wall highlights years of neglect – yet at the same time it highlights what was once years of care.

Weathered is this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post.

 

 

 

 

 

Chihuly with a hint of Christmas! (Friday Flowers)

These flowers were outside in the gardens of the Chihuly Glass and Garden exhibition in Seattle. It was the end of the day, the sun was setting and people were not wanting to stop whilst I took my happy snaps.

Consequently I wasn’t particularly happy with any of my photos. That was until I transferred one to my phone. Oh the joy of photo editing apps… they breathe new life into anything!

 

 

 

 

 

Oh to break the glass flower ceiling (Friday Flowers)

It may not have happened at the end of last year as many of us had hoped and dreamed, but it will happen… eventually.

That glass ceiling will be broken by women and equality will finally rain down upon females everywhere… eventually!

Within the Mountains (WPC – Scale)

Even now, this image of abstract artwork on one of our visits to Seyðisfjörður, East Iceland still intrigues me. It’s almost as if one piece of this iron is keeping the mountain at bay whilst another piece is stretching to protect the church from it.

This small township was an hour’s drive from our home in Reyðarfjörður. It was one of those drives that always felt as if it was taking longer then it was due to the fact you had to drive down the steepest, twisty road into it.

This image felt ideal for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week of… Scale.  Like everything in life, it’s where you stand that creates “your” perspective of what’s around you.

Frosted Rocks (WPC – Layers)

The layers of snow on these rocks we saw on our train trip through the Rocky Mountains always intrigue me. It’s as if Mother Nature herself has used a piping bag to cover all the rocks!

Layers is the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week.
