Let in the light - # 09/142

I'll bet they enjoyed all this just as much in the 17th Century as I do now.  Curves, angles, straight lines, sudden unexpected vistas, floods of light, deep shadows that form shapes, the incentive to just stop and look at how it's all arranged around you, everything pleasing the eye.


  1. Hi Stuart! Profiting from today’s holiday – the 99th anniversary of the Republic in Portugal - I’m happy to have some more time to surf the net and enjoy your blog!
    The B & W collection is superb, as weel as The Servant, it seems... Bogarde must be ashamed... ;)
    Blogtrotter is showing you Antalya. Enjoy and have a great week!

  2. A delight for the eye indeed. What a nice angle you chose and the light is just right and highlights the nice details.

  3. What's going on in that frame over the fireplace?
