Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame ( Dubrovnik 4 )

This week’s photo challenge is Frame.

Many of my pictures taken in Dubrovnik are framed.DSCF0969

There are many picturesque views you see through small windows while walking the Dubrovnik seawalls or through arches of medieval buildings.

As some of the architectural arches appear to frame the subject very well too.DSCF0863

These pictures were captured while walking the streets or sea walls of Dubrovnik.

It looks as if the old town and the sea was reviewed frame by frame.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up ( Blue Mosque )

This week’s DP photo challenge is Look Up.

It is hard not to look up the domes of the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey.CIMG0452

It must be one of the greatest Islamic architecture of all times.

The place is also beautifully lit with lights arranged in a spiral pattern.CIMG0412

You can wander around there for hours, with most of the time looking up to appreciate the beauty and grandness of the architecture.CIMG0451

Here is an introduction of the architecture from Wikipedia:

The Sultan Ahmed Mosque has five main domes, six minarets, and eight secondary domes. The design is the culmination of two centuries of Ottoman mosque development. It incorporates some Byzantine Christian elements of the neighboring Hagia Sophia with traditional Islamic Architecture and is considered to be the last great mosque of the classical period. The architect, Sedefkar Mehmed Aga, synthesized the ideas of his master Sinan, aiming for overwhelming size, majesty and splendour.CIMG0449

Aren’t they lovely?

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up ( from Down Under)

This week’s photo challenge is Look Up.

It was an unique experience looking up the light well from down under in the temple in Angkor Wat.

The light well is sort of confined and lined with rugged stones on all four sides, like a shaft extending to the sky.

I felt I was down under in a well, looking up the sky.DSC_0247

Then I thought of the Chinese idiom:

If you are a frog sitting at the bottom of the well, you probably say the sky is small. Actually, the sky is not small, only because your width of vision is limited.

If you are a Summer insect, then probably we can’t talk to you of snow. Not that there is no snow, but because you perish before the snow appears.DSC_0249

The above is my translation into English while writing this; so this may not be the best of translation.

This week’s DP photo challenge is Curve.

I will never be able to count the number of curves in this Bird Nest in Beijing, China.DSCF2529

The structure is three dimensionally curved.

the curves look random but natural.
