A few pictures from Paris in November. I felt odd about posting them at the time, and I still do, a bit.
I loved Kuala Lumpur – I think it’s probably got the best skyline of any city I’ve been to.
A few photos from our bike trip in France earlier in the summer, taken with my La Sardina, because my SLR was too big and heavy 😦 I seem to have lost all the photos of us on our bikes…
At Newhaven, waiting to get on the ferry. I'm the only cyclist with a wickerbasket.
Photos from the Neon Museum in Las Vegas.
The museum/boneyard is where a lot of the signs from the old casinos end up. I thought it was amazing – an atmospheric, evocative, rusty slice of Americana. Well worth visiting, especially if you have even a passing interest in design or typography.
Some photos I forgot about from Istanbul:
More beautiful than the photographs show and than my words can describe.
Topkapi Palace is over-the-top Ottoman opulence – it’s huge, and there’s a room for every possible purpose, including a rather lovely circumcision room with a nice view over the water.
You couldn’t take photos in the treasury, but let me tell you, there was some serious bling in there. Simple girl that I am, the tiling was my favourite bit. I’d quite like to raise an Ottoman from the dead to do my bathroom.
The ‘gilded cage’ photo was a bit of luck; it was describing a genuine gilded cage, but it sums up the place for me, because depsite all the opulence, the rules, segregation and backstabbing must have made it an isolating place to live.
