2.  A Wordless Directional Sign

Pretty self explanatory really.  From the car park at the local supermarket.


5.  A Bridge - The Swiss Bridge in Birkenhead Park


6.  A School - Where I work.


8.  Some Shadows - I saw this picture at the GYS.  It's made entirely from small pieces of extremely thin wood.  It appealed to me, as it makes me think of our troops in the desert.


11.  Extraordinary Water - The Ross Fountain in Edinburgh.  
Extraordinary, as the 122 piece fountain was first seen by David Ross, a gun maker, at the Great Exhibition in London in 1862.  In 1869 he bought the sculpture and had is shipped north to Leith, where it was assembled before being gifted to the city in 1872.  It still stands in Princes Street Gardens.



How did you get on this time?

  1. What a brilliant piece of marquetry in that picture. You've found some great photos - you definitely had to include where you work for number six!

    1. We watched marquetry being done and it's amazing how little bits of thin, coloured wood can make such amazing pictures.

  2. Liz thanks for joining in with the SPSH. OH WOW to that fountain in Scotland, great photo. A very pretty bridge; I like your take on Shadows. Your school has a nice entry of welcome :)

    1. I love that fountain and the fact you can get the castle in the background. I had to put where I work for number six as it's such an amazing school and a great place to work.

  3. Great finds! I love the bridge--so beautiful and unique, and the fountain which I wish I'd seen last August when we were in Edinburgh.
