  • Photo Assignment: Glimpsed through the arch

    I’m always fascinated by tantalising glimpses of a scene through an arch as it frames the view beyond, opening up an interesting perspective, and by a view through an open doorway. While scanning in my Rhodes pictures taken in 1991 ready to do a thread on the island I found myself coming back again and again to those taken in the fascinating mediaeval Rhodes Old Town, with its very narrow alleys and flying buttresses. So see what you have featuring views framed by arches, doorways or cloisters and post them here.

                    The Empire Hotel, Brunei. The same pix appears in the Brunei thread.

                      Yes, saw it after I posted that. The Empire Hotel looks just so impressive with all the details. Large open areas, beautiful tiles and high ceilings - and beautifully tended gardens.

                        I put this in Reflections as it so obviously fits there, but it is relevant here also.

                          I would love to see this very same image on a day when the water is completely silent, it would be like a mirror-effect.

                            I found this snow-tunnel on a dock in Svolvær today, and I hope it fits into this category
