Photo A Day Jan – Week 1

Stunning Sunset: No filter, just a slightly brightened phone pic. It was so good to have a chance to rest over Christmas and reflect on God’s goodness in the previous year. And to enjoy such wonders in creation.

Edgeware Road Tube Station, London – Used my favourite (well, only) photo editing app ‘Fotor’ for the blurred effect and filter. Love the app and would recommend to anyone.

Quiet Cafe Nero, Bath – Somehow managed to capture this quiet passing moment during a very busy lunch period in the cafe.

Saturday Church League Football – Always good fun (unless you lose 2-1 having gone 1-0 up with 15mins to go). Great game none the less with a good atmosphere. Great to be able to pray together before the match, to not have any (serious) injuries and increase fitness.

Royal Circus, Bath – One of my favourite places in the city to catch a quick break/stroll through.

Bath Bus Station – Caught a quick glimpse of this as I walked under the bath-stone underpass opposite. Interesting juxtaposition (coz that’s a big word for a Friday) between old and newer styles of Architecture.

Nothing quite like an 11am coffee break at work. They do make ’em good!

Georgeous old church building along The Mile, Edinburgh..

Edinburgh Castle..

Castle and views over the city with North Sea (I think) in the background..

Old school draw bridge. Used to be raised in ancient times to prevent enemies entering the castle..

Where J.K Rowling wrote the Harry Potter books over coffee and cake..

Not the same cafe but still worth the pic.. fuelling that caffeine addiction..

Belfast Town Hall – Casually walked into this building thinking it was a museum. Only realised my mistake when I got to some pretty heavy duty security inside. Oops!

Old and New - A city rebuilding from its past. Belfast has such a rich blend of architectural styles sitting comfortably in juxtaposition with each other. Here's one such example.

Nicknamed “Samson and Goliath Cranes”… They are huge!!!

Sooo many old church buildings dating back centuries. Never quite took enough photos to do justice of just how many I saw.
