My favourite shot.. this year!



Do you ever take a shot hoping that when you download it will translate into the image that you saw in the frame? That's how it was with this one for me. It's a reflection of the new Old Brewery (?) in the old Swan Brewery.. are you confused :) I think it's worth enlarging to see the details. The painting is by Scottish born John Campbell sometime between 1896/1924, his way with colour is exceptional don't you think.. and then there's a bit of an arch 'thing' going on.. I don't say it often about my own shots but I really like this one, hope you do too. Have a fab weekend, we're in for a hottie here in Perth so will look forward to seeing some snow scenes please :) Click here to see more reflections from around the world.....

  1. Oh, I like that one very much, Grace! The colour in the painting itself and the detail works beautifully!

    It's snowing and cool here today, if that helps.

  15. I have huge white snowflakes floating down past my window ... again. We have had so much snow and cold this year that it is not something I am treasuring at the moment. But that I could , I would send it to you:) Your picture is a delight and no wonder you love it. Everything just fell into place. It is beautiful. Savor the moment and then move on to your next great achievment. Great job, Grace ...

  16. Even before I read the post, I thought, that is an amazing painting? Reflection? Both? So cool! I do love those colors. Icing on the cake with the 'arch thing':) Happy Weekend to you (if only we could send you some of our winter:)

  25. You could make a photo book for the year. Title it : The Greatest of Grace and put it on the cover.
    Home from the beach, but no snow around here to photograph. I am hoping you cool off soon,

    ReplyDelete

  27. I like Janey's idea. Swan's brewery must be a very historic place!

    Hope the temperture cools a bit for you. 38°C sounds way to oppressive!

  33. You are justified in being proud of this photo, Grace. It is beautiful.

    I am often asked if a photo I took was good, and I always say I won't know until I get it on the computer and can see it up close. Fortunately, there are usually more happy surprises than disappointments.

    God bless you!
