I like this Amelia. The bright colours against the leaden sky look great. Best wishes, Rosa.

Good morning Anand, and thank you for the capitalised 'excellent'. :)))

Amelia Royan on November 15, 2011

Hello dear Suzi, it was a day of mixed fortunes and what we really needed was a gamp! :))))

But I persevered and, for the most part, managed to avoid the downpours, so I'm really pleased that you like the result.

Tuesday hugs to Oregon, Amelia

Amelia Royan on November 15, 2011

Hi there dear Rosa, and thank you. The science centre is very colourful, and the leaden skies added impact to the flags. We didn't have time to go in, but I think it's a hands on experience for children.

Friendly greetings, Amelia

Gorgeous flambuoyant colour! I thought that you had 'doctored' the scene by removing colour from the dark sky, Amelia, but apparently I'm wrong. I love it! Theolfa

Love the shape, shadows and geometry here

Leo Roundtree on November 15, 2011

I'm with Mike here Amelia. Love the geometry and the title! Also learned a new word - "gamp". Is there no end to the benefits of being a Panoramian?! :)

Best wishes, Leo

Spot on title for this stairway to a damp heaven ~ I bet one's energy would be flagging as one reached the top :) xxx

Hi Amelia.

Lovely colour composition. I LIKE it.

Best wishes Mick

Dear Theolfa, I'm not much good with 'doctoring' photos - apart from making the attempt to get horizons straight! ;)

It was a hit and miss day, hit the shutter button and miss the downpours, but I'm glad you liked the effect.

Hugs, Amelia

Amelia Royan on November 16, 2011

Good morning dear Leo, I think the architect got the golden mean just about right here, with the verticals and horizontals + the narrowing stairway.

Gamp is the word of the day - or was yesterday anyway. I'm beginning to feel a bit archaic myself! ;)

Cheers, Amelia

Amelia Royan on November 16, 2011

Hello Bonnie Lad, as Leo said - your description was perfect! Some people always manage to say the right things in a few words. Thank you!

Ca canny noo, Amelia

Amelia Royan on November 16, 2011

Hi there Haggs, many thanks. Sometimes grim weather is good for photography - I don't these flags would have stood out so well against a blue sky :))

Cheers, Amelia

Amelia Royan on November 16, 2011

Good morning Ronald, thank you for your generous compliment. I am delighted to read it.

Friendly greetings, Amelia
