Milan Cathedral By Day and By Night

Various members of my family do like taking photos.

My brother likes uploading them to his Facebook to feature his travels.

My wife like taking photos with her iPhone but never bothers to publish them.IMG_0975

As mentioned in my earlier post, my wife and her dad are travelling in Italy and Switzerland, here are two pictures of the Milan Cathedral she sent me via the iPhone today:

Actually, I like both photos, their perspectives are quite different from those available on the internet.



Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic ( Switzerland)

This is a casual shot up in the mountains of Switzerland some years ago!DSCF8535

Hope this illustrates Monochromatic which is the theme of this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge.

How I like the trees and the various shades of green!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic (Cambodia)

Here is an image of the Asparas in Angkor Wat, Cambodia.

The image is basically monochromatic.IMGP1194

Here is an introduction from Wikipedia:
Apsaras are beautiful, supernatural female beings. They are youthful and elegant, and superb in the art of dancing. They are often wives of the Gandharvas, the court musicians of Indra. They dance to the music made by the Gandharvas, usually in the palaces of the gods, entertain and sometimes seduce gods and men. As ethereal beings who inhabit the skies, and are often depicted taking flight, or at service of a god, they may be compared to angels.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic ( Mogno)

While I stayed at home as a caregiver to my mom, my wife and her dad are travelling in Switzerland and Italy. She is trying to accompany her 84 years old dad to as many places as possible before he couldn’t travel anymore.

This is the church at Mogno, Switzerland which is a good example of Monchromatic for this week’s DP Photo Challenge.IMG_0962

A brief introduction of the church is given in Wikipedia:

Mogno is most noted for its modern marble and granite Church of San Giovanni Battista, designed by Ticinese architect Mario Botta. The church was erected between 1994 and 1996 on the site of its 350-year old predecessor, which was levelled by an avalanche in 1986. This catastrophe also claimed several of the homes in the village, although luckily no-one was injured in this event.IMG_0963

The original church of San Giovanni Battista Decollato was built in 1626 and was initially a  chapel of ease of the parish of Peccia. Towards the end of the 17th Century it became an independent parish church. In 1940 it became part of the parish of Fusio

I like the angles and perspective of these photos taken by my wife. Please enjoy!
