The Old Town, Budva
Weekly photo challenge: Door
I spent last week visiting the lovely country of Montenegro. These photographs were taken from Our Lady of the Rocks, Perast in the Bay of Kotor and give a very slight hint of the stunningly beautiful mountains, lakes, architecture and history on offer. Door

Buggingham Pallets vs Buckingham Palace
Herm Island in the Channel Islands where schoolchildren have created bug hotels for wildlife and the grandeur of Buckingham Palace in London. Both destinations visited last week.

Weekly photo challenge: From lines to patterns
This week’s challenge From Lines to Patterns,
Weekly photo challenge: Future Tense
I normally have a little gripe now and again that they don’t make buildings like they used to. I love the beauty, grandeur and robustness of the Three Graces in Liverpool and I was sceptical about the new modern buildings that have been built around these 3 icons. However, I have grown to love the angles and lines of the new additions, especially the Museum of Liverpool and the Beatles Museum. So for my Future Tense, I’m moving with the times, accepting the new architecture and admiring how the new blends with the old. It remains to be seen if the new buildings will be iconic in a couple of hundred years. I’d put a bet on that the Three Graces will still be there standing strong!
It was fun experimenting in different locations with the thick mist. This is Lonan Church (photographs taken yesterday) which is the “new” Lonan Church, built in 1834. The old Lonan Church (St Adamnan’s, which I’ve posted about previously) dates back to the 14th century.
These are the last of the misty photographs for now as I think I’ll move onto something more upbeat (elements permitting!).
The last 2 photographs are of the old Church (taken Feb 2013).
