Cees Fun Foto Challenge – V


The Victorian Pavilion undergoing renovation at Kew

V for Victorian….so I guess the Victorian Glass house, known as the Temperate House, located in the world famous Kew Botanical Gardens fits the bill.  Photographed at the start of an extensive restoration  programmethat will ensure the Pavilion will stand for another century or two. It is due to re-open in all its new glory sometime in 2018

Weekly Photo Challenge – Converge (2)

Kew Palm House

The Palm House at Kew Botanical Gardens, London

My second offering for this weeks Photo Challenge ( http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/converge/ )
illustrates the blend of converging and diverging lines both in the man made structure of this Giant Victorian Glass House and that of  the Natural World’s shapes ….a sympathetic blend.
