Back to last year’s summer, yeah, I was in Europe, discovering the charm of History and Art. Firenze, Florence, is the city I loved most in Italy and I had a great time there. Showing you guys the great architecture ofBasilica di Santa Maria del Fiore. Great design and great culture hidden both outside and inside it. Hope you like it and sorry not to include the Campanile di Giotto, the bell tower besides it.
Enjoy my friends!

Impressive Dome of Hagia Sophia by hayazici

Hagia Sophia (Ayasofya)…Istanbul
Hagia Sophia is the one of the most visited museums and most prominent monuments in the world in terms of art and the history of architecture. It has also been called “the eighth wonder of the world” by East Roman Philon as far back as the 6th century. It was used as a church for 916 years but, following the conquest of Istanbul by Fatih Sultan Mehmed, the Hagia Sophia was converted into mosque. Afterwards, it was used as a mosque for 482 years.

The Void by Turnipfarmer

The Void – One New Change Shopping Centre, London, England – http://ift.tt/V5qrF7

A new image this time and one that I must have edited 5 or 6 different times, each time just not happy with the edit I did. I then revisited it yesterday and did this edit of it and instantly liked it, its odd how things occur sometimes. I think what was putting me off is the lack of clouds or textures in the sky behind St Paul’s, to me I need something to fill that gap or the balance of the highlight with the lowlights was just putting me off.

Anyway, with all that aside this is One New Change shopping centre, almost becoming a bit of a cliche now within the photographer fraternity so I tried something a little different and went for a low POV and surprising it worked really well although I did get an odd look from the gentleman in the photo but I don’t care :-).

Hope you all had a great weekend!
