Look Up, Look Down Challenge: Week 24

DSCF2436

Good morning from a cloudy Hastings.

For this weeks challenge I am just looking up.  This is the bandstand right in the centre of the CBD of Hastings.  My daughter and I went hunting for photos one night and I found this.  Actually it has obviously been there for some time but this was the first time I had really had a good look at it.

I like the way the silhouettes of the design really showed up.  This has a native american feel to it but it also has the Maori koru as well. Below shows the distinctive koru – the arrow shape up the top.

As you can see I had fun with the editing.

A lingering Look at Windows: Week 5 Lines and textures.

For this week’s entry I haven’t strayed far from home.  These have all been taken around my home at night time to catch the golden glow.  I have been fascinated with the lines of the venetian blinds contrasting with the view through the window in the last photo.  There are so many lines going in different directions.

I was also fascinated by the contrast of the textured window pane against the hard lines of the blinds.

Good evening from a coolish Hastings.

This week the  black and white challenge by Cee’s Photography is the back of things.

I was searching for another photo of the back of my husbands classic car, but as usual I didn’t find it (no doubt I will find it when I don’t need it – Murphy’s Law.) But I found these photos of the backs of roses and another flower that I am not too sure about.

Here are a couple of other great blogs to check out in this challenge.
