Hi Andrea ...bubbles are great fun ...I tried doing a frozen bubble this week but failed miserably!
That's something I wasn't even aware of until this last year or so and there are some fascinating speeded-up videos of a bubble being blown and then freezing from the bottom up. Definitely another thing for the wish/to-do list :)

Gaudy is good, and quite typical of other stuff I have seen on the coast in Spain…. so tasteless it's actually eye-catching. Whack an electric guitar in front of some repro Roman/Greek columns!! Brilliant find and well-captured.

Rome:D with an electric guitar is good for the theme Susie, have a great holiday and bring back warm sunshine.
Great image for the theme Susie. Well composed, and that blue sky...... Enjoy your holiday.
Entrance
Very subtle, you would hardly know it's there ;)
Thank you for looking in folks .... much appreciated .....it’s definitely an eye catching spot :cool:

I love the composition and the colours are very vibrant.
I think it works tremendously well....the richness of the colours compliments the (non-too-subtle) subject matter perfectly!
The blues of the sky and steps(?) are very well framed, and the guitar is a great focal point.
Excellent work Susie, hope you have a splendid holiday!!(y)

Like you bubble image. Colours and the placement so it arches through the frame

Wow! Now that IS an entrance! Nice shot Susie and please bring back some blue skies :)
Impressive entrance, nice shot. Framed really well.
Thank you so much folks I really do appreciate all of your comments.

At last I'm catching up ... these were all taken with my phone this weekend.

Young ....SOOC
I was in London on Saturday with my Grandaughter, this young lady was posing inside one of the art exhibits at the Saatchi Gallery.

SMOOTH

We enjoyed a smooth journey home, I love this journey, as you pass through Dawlish the view is like a picture on the wall.

Beautiful images Susie!(y)

Young: I do so love the abstract quality here, masterfully shot and the reflections are great. It would still have been a terrific image without the young lady posing, but her being there has improved it substantially! There's echoes of the opening sequence to the James Bond films too!
Food: beautifully laid out trolley and I love the background. Excellent warm feel too, certainly has a sense of joy and happiness.
Smooth: It really does look like a picture on the wall of the train....superbly shot image indeed!

Hi Susie,

Wet - Excellent shot, you've captured the colours reflected / refracted in the bubble really well :)

Entrance - Lovely colours caught there. The guitar stands out well against the background. As Allan alludes, it is perhaps slightly OTT.

Young - Well that's a thing isn't it... Very, erm, interesting :) Can't have been easy to shoot either with all the reflections . Nicely silhouetted SooC (y)

Food - I like the frame that the curate provides. I like the blurred out view of ye olde Lundinium that you have there too. (You can almost se my office - it's hidden behind the Nat West Tower).

Smooth - Looks like you were in an HST. Make the most of it, it'll be Pendos next year!
The sea at Dawlish can be soo fickle. Smooth like in your shot, or raging storms.

Three great shots to catch up!!
YOUNG - this is just a spectacular shot. Really like it.
FOOD - I like the bright colours against the grey backdrop. Very effective.
SMOOTH - definitely a picture on the wall! Smooth ride back home after a busy day in the capital!!

Hi Susie

A fabulous set of images to catch up with.
Young is an absolute belter and SooC too. Love it!
Nice shot for Food too. Looks like a lovely tea a long way up. Is that High Tea? ;)
Great shot for Smooth too. It really does look like a scene on a choalate box rather than through a train window.

Thank you Gareth, I was pleased considering they were all off my phone.

Young is a great shot Susie :clap: both food and smooth work well, nice to get the BG in food too
Thanks Allan ...it took a bit of juggling about to get get the background right.

As you may know, I’m a big fan of framing. Absolute cracker of a shot!
Thank you, I'm pleased you like it, its a cracking view.

Well Susie, even though they are taken with your phone these shots are great and love them all. Young and the last one are fantastic.
Thanks Dave Young is my favourite too.

Young is the shot of the bunch here for me, absolutely brilliantly composed - love it.

Food and Smooth are nice shots, I do like the look of the food, I hope it was a nice afternoon tea!
It was alovely tea thank you :) Young was my favourite too.

Thank you for looking so far back Tim, very much appreciated. I'm glad the sea was calm ....I didn't fancy getting washed away!

Hi Lee, thank you, it looks as if Young was the pick of the bunch, I love it, the Saatchi certainly has some strange exhibits.

Young is a great image. That's so in your face and abstract. The colours and detail almost make you dizzy! Like it

Food - that looks amazing. Such vibrancy to the cakes and also to the image. So much to look at

Smooth - I like this. Really good working with the train window to frame the amazing scenery in the distance

Talk about playing catch up ...I'm trying to get up to date but always seem to be behind :(

My Grandaughter and I went for a look around Truro Cathedral yesterday, we were so impressed, apparently its only just over a hundred years old, but the workmanship is still stunning. Very calm and peaceful in there too, I must call in more often.

Taken on my phone.

Really nice shot of the cathedral Susie, one minor niggle needs a little off the LHS to get it perfectly symmetrical

A very good shot and also poignant too after Notre Dame. It`s a very nicely taken image of the inside and showing the lovely roof above.
Thanks Dave ...cathedrals are so impressive, quite awe inspiring really.

Good take for ABOVE. I don't mind the lack of symmetry. I know how hard it is to get that but you managed very well. It's all about what's 'above' in cathedrals and churches etc so bang on theme!!

Hi Susie,

That's a great shot for Above. As you say the workmanship in these places is simply beautiful. You've done well to capture the wide dynamic range that's in there as well.

Fantastic image Susie!
I tried to take a similar photo of Norwich Cathedral, but it was pretty dark, there were hundreds of people in there, and tripods were not permitted, so all mine were wobbly (I was down to 1/10th of a second!)
Yours is amazing, with such great detail.
Such a marvellous vaulted ceiling, and I especially like the balance of light you had, with perfect detail in the shadows and highlights!
Very nicely done!:clap:
