Monochrome Madness 4-17

Finally a (sun)day worth being called a mid-summer day. Only a few more days and the wheat will get harvested.

These hot summer afternoons with crisp blue skies and a few white clouds are ideal for taking monochrome images. Takin either a yellow, a red or an orange filter to get such an amazing sky.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.

I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are  published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!

Looking back to my trip to Barcelona in spring 2014 and especially to this amazing building designed by the genius architect Antonio Gaudi.

Travel Tuesday: A merchants house

Greetsiel has a long tradition of shipping. For centuries people along the costs made their living with fishing, whale catching and long-distance trading. Not only sailors came from these towns, also officers and captains. And these captains usually brought back lots of money (when they came back – lots of men and ships got lost to the sea in those times).  So, in each town with a harbour you can find very gorgeous houses, once built by a captain.

Very often, such houses are near to the harbour. Often with a good view to the sea. These houses were to document the wealth of the owner (= builder)

 

Take care!
