Living art – A Photo a Week Challenge – Colorful

This week Nancy has challenged us with the topic of ‘Colorful’, saying:

I’ve done several color challenges lately, so this time I decided to go for the whole shebang. I’m looking for the most colorful thing you can find to photograph.

Well the first photo I decided to use was of the hundertwasserhaus in Vienna, a truly stunning piece of architectural art, colourful, enlivening, inspirational.  Living here would certainly colour your life.

“Just carrying a ruler with you in your pocket should be forbidden, at least on a moral basis. The ruler is the symbol of the new illiteracy. The ruler is the symptom of the new disease, disintegration of our civilisation.” – Friedensreich Hundertwasser

And of course, as I have previously posted when answering these sort of challenges about colour, one of the most colourful things I can think of is my wife, so the next photo is of her, certainly not following straight lines in this photo.

‘By’ & ‘At’ the bank – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Bank.

In this weeks challenge Dutch goes the Photo! asks:

I thought it might be time to go with the flow and walk along the Bank. This week’s theme gives me enough confidence to bank on a wonderful set of creative responses from all of you fantastic contributors!

Yes, you guessed it! This is another theme that can take into numerous directions, all of which should be a lot of fun to explore. I look forward to reading all of your approaches!

So here are two photos from my archives with the theme of ‘bank’.

The first a 4 photo stitch taken ‘By the bank’ in Vagthussøen, Copenhagen, 2017.riverbank

And the second,  ‘At the Raiffeisen bank’, in Vienna 2013.bank2

Hard to find – Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #29: Cityscapes

For this weeks Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, Patti one of the curators of the Lens-Artists Photography Challenge asks us to:

share a cityscape of one city or several cities with populations in the thousands or millions.  They can be near your home or thousands of miles away.   It’s totally up to you.  Most importantly, show us the big picture view.

A particular challenge for me as I am usually a countryside creature rather than a city dweller whenever possible.  And when I am in cities most of my shots fairly close architectural shots of one or two buildings at most.  So Cityscapes do not feature highly in my archives, perhaps I need to remedy this.

However here are a couple of shots that will fit the bill.
