While we wait for poor UK Primo Daisy Cameron to chew over a decision on exactly how much daylight the British are allowed in winter, we shiver in the dark, necking Vitamin D and trying to remember the Basic Rules of Tactical Voting. While Daisy dithers, you may need some colour and light in your life! Here are some random images which I took on my travels, focusing on colour and texture.
I love the way these glass bottles overlap, inventing new shapes and colours between them in the Castro, San Francisco.
A beautiful Greek summer, with hot reds and pinks on the balcony.
There’s something about crude fiberglass mouldings that says you’re at the seaside.
The random patterns of the Aegean in closeup.
Blissful calm at the foot of Mount Olympus.
I love the hot orange paint, and the rough plaster dappled with midday sun, Santorini Bay.
The heavens above mythic Mount Olympus.
The sun shafting through my drink on San Francisco’s Embarcadero, revealing the true colour of Coke and a million tiny bubbles.
The rusting yellow metal against the deep greeny-blue water is my kind of contrast.
Bright and shiny palm fronds in the garden at Olympic Beach.
These candlesticks looked stark and cool reflected in the glass table top.
A beautiful golden palm frond catching the sun and contrasting with the skyscraper behind it, San Francisco.
Gaudi’s wonderful mosaic architecture speaks for itself, Barcelona.
The Farmers’ Market, San Francisco: a riot of colour.
