Colours in Architecture

There are 7 days left for this #GuruShots Challenge and I’ve submitted a fairly eclectic mix of photographs – see below:

From left to right:

  • A jail in the Badlands, South Dakota – fairly sure no longer used! :-)
  • A hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates – an very impressive yet completely OTT and odd place. I’d like to go back and see some more but the place seemed almost overrun with Ex-Pats while I was there.
  • A shop front in Hoi An, Vietnam – loved the setting of the shopkeeper taking time out and reading waiting for customers but hardly worrying about an empty store
  • Outside Area in the Monastery of San Francisco, Lima, Peru – the orange paint was oppressive. Well worth a visit – has a surprise in the catacombes – not really for the faint-hearted.

The Top Photos in this Challenge are outstanding and my images will not be able to compete. See them for yourselves here and you are one of the photographers, congratulations, amazing work.

Update: a Premier level finish which I’m very happy about. I didn’t make any swaps and the votes were as follows:

  • Peru image received the most votes with 138
  • South Dakota received 119
  • The seated and reading gentleman in Hoi An achieved 112 votes
  • Finally, the Dubai shot managed 100 votes

Curves

Another challenge to have a go at and there are nine days left. I’ve uploaded the following:

 

From left to right:

  • Statue at Angkor Wat, Cambodia
  • Dandelion Clock
  • Dragon at Hoi An, Vietnam
  • Temple at Mekong Delta, Vietnam

The statue was a really interesting subject outside the main temple of Angkor Wat and was really striking. The image of the Dragon at Hoi An was in the main square of the town. It’s a beautiful small town full of colour and lanterns – I think the most wonderful stop on the Vietnamese tour although I did find the Mekong Delta very impressive too. I suppose the dandelion clock looks a little daft sandwiched between the travel photos but I thought it was right to include it was it was about the curviest subject I had in the bag! :-)

In nine days time, I’ll post an update.
