Hi there everyone, well seeing as it's going to be a long weekend and the weather doesn't look that good, I thought last night I'd do an 'early release' of images so that you all could enjoy. This weeks bag is a bit different in that I have found some amazing images that although not architectural I thought I'd would share with you all, so enjoy grab a coffee and take 20 minutes off, you deserve it.
Not that amazing until you realise it's more work from that man Robin Aley ( google him), this is not a photo, it is an oil painting.
They are incredible and the more you look the more you are convinced "no that's real, not a painting".
National Geographic image of the year, quite incredible photography
Perfect formation over southrn England
Ok back to design ideas, just loved this chair
Timber seems to be making a resurgence again overseas, it will be interesting to see what happens here in the next few months
Again more timber, it certainly does have a nice feeling to it
Just a bit out there
I like the way the designers have incorporated lighting into the design, it's not my cup of tea but it is still well done.
pretty cool house
being a stone carver in a past life, I like the form that these people have acheived here, perfect lines
More timber appearing
Oh yes, i could wake up to this ANY day
I've mentioned this before but the light that they get in Asia certainly has a different aspect to it than what we recive here, ours is to harsch I think, I really enjoy the softness that they seem to have
OK then, i guess it takes all sorts of thinking to acheive a result like this
Timber and lots of it, it certainly gives a richness to a space
Mother Nature again working her art on natural elements, this is a great shot
And speaking of great shots.............wow
Just because you can
Beautiful house, look how well it fits.
Here's that man again, I love the colour saturation here, so real, it's almost like you can touch him
Well what can you say............the brief "and I want lots of coloured balconies", so that's what you get
Old bay villa in Auckland, I think that the designers are doing some great work with these older houses, I wish our Historic places would let us loose on some of the inner city buildings because there are some fantastic results that could be acheived
Art again making a space, and timber on the ceilings again
Roof top living at its best
Another image simiar to the one I posted on the Eifel Tower, just a great shot
Timber being used both on the floor and the ceiling, and finished so well. Pretty well timeless.
This is what I meant by the previous comment on Historic Places, we could never be allowed to do this. Imagine if we could do stuff like this....and I think Christchurch really has the opportunity right now to be let a bit loose in order to build icons like this.
WOW.............I wonder what this room is used for
To finish off this week, i came across this image, this carrot field was flooded out by an underground river and the pressure of the water caused the carrots to just 'pop' up out of the ground, made me laugh, I'll bet the people that had to pick them had an easy job afetr this.
Anyway, that's me for now, have a good long weekend.
