Touch Of Red

I’m just trying out a bit of a photoessay on a building  that I had noticed for a while now  that had a red spotlight on the side of it and made the effort to go and take a few photos of it, using the red as a focal point.

Unfortunately or as it turned out fortunately  it was raining when I took the shots, so I popped down after work and grabbed my shots trying to keep the camera dry and  work a couple of angles trying to keep the  rain of the lens.

it was a interesting and fun exercise which I will repeat again I’m sure ….

Paintsmiths visit Heron Road

The Scaffolding recently came down on a new mural from Paintsmiths which, for this work, was Felix and Jack Tiernay for Bristol City Council and the Warm Up Bristol Campaign show home over at 56 Heron Road, Easton, BS5.

The mural itself is a stunning piece of work showing off the house itself and lots of examples of the old types of energy and the new sustainable energies that are now available.

The Life Sciences Building

I have taken some photos of the new University of Bristol Life Sciences building on Tyndall Avenue. I am really liking the architectural abstract parts of the building a lot, there are some great lines and curves. It’s nice to see a new building that isn’t a straight and boring box, like so many of the new buildings in Bristol.

The Secret Hideaway of a Tourist Boat

 

While exploring Tokyo I came across this little area that had loads of boats used for tourist and fishing moored up in I think Shiba, Minato City. I had a very pleasant half hour exploring around the boats and how the old and new worked well together with motorway and trains all around it and above, as well as factories and peoples houses and even though the area was very busy it felt very calm and peaceful!

The Cosy Club Bristol

I popped into the Cosy Club  Bristol on Monday,  as I knew that it had recently opened up in Corn Street just to have a look and simply to have a cup of tea.

I was blown away by the beautiful interior architecture of the building it had been refurbished as well and looks great.

While I was in having my tea I was a bit cheeky and asked if it was ok to take a few photos and these are the ones I took while mooching around and the tea was great as well as the very helpful staff so no complaints and I will be going back !
