Atomium II

Constructed as a key attraction for the 1958 World Fair, it was an amazing engineering and construction achievement. featuring the fastest elevator and longest escalator at that time. It was planned to be dismantled after the fair but it was such a popular feature that it was left standing year on year. However, over the years, very little maintenance was done so it was quite deteriorated until in 2004 it was closed for renovation. It was reopened in 2006 after €26 million worth of renovation.

F is for Flying

I have been wanting to get some balloons, go to a nice open field and do this shot for the last few weeks but given the weather here (it was snowing last night!), it has been almost impossible to go out and take pictures without being frozen! I tried a few other ideas for the theme of Flying but nothing came out right. Out of frustration, I shot her with the teddy at home against a white wall and processed it into an old image from the Mayfield Lavender fields.
