Monochrome Madness (3-12) and other views

The next two months will be busy ones as I at last am moving! I’ll be out further into the suburbs- off a country road, on a hillside! So as I am not posting as frequently I will combine my post again with Leanne’s theme and my own theme of views from different places.  For MM I have the view from on high – a pyramid at the lesser known but wonderful city of Ek Balam which is close to Valladolid in central Yucatan.

Monochrome Madness 3-12 “high – Visit Leanne’s blog for another great gallery.

 

High above the jungle, the view from the pyramid

More views- Orkneys

Skaill House window

and I’ll miss Craigflower with it’s  old farmhouse and school and the Gorge estuary. But there will be new places to explore.

A view from an upper window in the old Schoolhouse slightly haunted!

  4. Enjoyed the entire set, but it is the first one in monochrome that parades a teeny tiny world to imagine.
