All in all a great day out.

Back to work tomorrow, but still lots of days out photo’s processed and ready to go, it’s been great to go so many places and see some fabulous sights, have had a lovely holiday with the Fuji XT1, and especially with my hubby.

  • Those stairs and those sarcophagi! It’s not strange that some believe buildings from the past were made by aliens XD Lovely window display with floral arrangement, simple and minimal composition, thanks fragglerocking lady.

  • It’s great that you combined b&w photos with sepia toned photos and macro photos in full technicolor πŸ™‚ I especially like the the soft focus on the “bells”, and the flowers in the window look like their asking to go out and play πŸ™‚
