HongKong-5, originally uploaded by Rachel De Stijl.

I found today’s photo to be very calming, very soothing, and very striking. The statue seems pensive, and maybe a bit sad. It certainly matches the gray and rainy skies we’re having in Toronto today.

Doors, originally uploaded by onesharp.

Something drew me to the shades of gray in this photo today – something about the colours and the lines and the shadow.

St Michael – Penzance – England, originally uploaded by pacoveratf.

This is Saint Michael’s Mount, in Penzance, Cornwall, just off the coast in England.

Learn more here about the history and the lives of some current islanders – yes, about 30 families live on the Mount.

The location was used for Orsino’s castle in the 1996 film Twelfth Night.

The book I’m currently reading takes place in the area, which is why I’ve chosen to feature this photo today.

Selfridge Building – Birmingham, originally uploaded by Katie-Rose.

I was drawn to the pattern in this photo, I had no idea what it was until I read the description – it’s from the Selfridge Building in Birmingham’s Bull Ring.

The original photographer notes that it opened in September 2003, and that the outside of the store is covered with a skin made
up of 15,000 spun aluminium disks. COOL.

See her other shots of this building here and here.
