One of the many reasons I love Second Life. The builders are so talented. Inside they have all the staircases and pictures on the walls... it's very cool. There is a fair going on there at the moment too~



Alnwick Castle Most famously in recent years, featured as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the first two Harry Potter films. Scenes filmed at the castle include Harry's first Quidditch lesson and the crash-landing of the flying Ford Anglia.

Regno Unito, Londra, King’s Cross Station, Inverno 2015


La stazione ferroviaria di King’s Cross è un importante capolinea ferroviario di Londra che fu inaugurato nel 1852 sul margine settentrionale del centro di Londra e prende nome da un monumento a Re Giorgio IV che è stato demolito nel 1845. Una nuova struttura semicircolare nell’area partenze è stata aperta al pubblico il 19 marzo 2012. L'edificio semicircolare ha un raggio di 54 metri e oltre 2.000 pannelli triangolari, di cui la metà in vetro. La copertura è stato descritta come "una specie di cascata invertita, una griglia in acciaio bianco che si erge dal terreno e ricade sopra la tua testa". King’s Cross è menzionata nei libri di Harry Potter, di JK Rowling, come punto di partenza dell’Hogwarts Express per la Scuola di Hogwarts di Magia e Stregoneria. Il treno utilizza una piattaforma segreta 9¾ alla quale si accede attraverso un muro di mattoni tra le piattaforme 9 e 10.


King's Cross railway station is a major London railway terminus which opened in 1852 on the northern edge of central London and it took its name from a monument to King George IV that was demolished in 1845. A new semi-circular departures concourse, opened to the public on 19 March 2012. The semi-circular building has a radius of 54 metres and over 2,000 triangular roof panels, half of which are glass. The structure of the roof has been described as being "like some kind of reverse waterfall, a white steel grid that swoops up from the ground and cascades over your head". King's Cross features in the Harry Potter books, by J. K. Rowling, as the starting point of the Hogwarts Express to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The train uses a secret platform 9¾ accessed through the brick wall barrier between platforms 9 and 10.


This started out as little gift for a friend with a whole other theme in mind, but ended up being the School of witchcraft and wizardry.. :)

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. So well done. Such ambiance at night. Can't wait to return!

Wow! How do you do that! It's magic! :)

Gloucester Cathedral, or the Cathedral Church of St Peter and the Holy and Undivided Trinity, in Gloucester, England, stands in the north of the city near the river. It originated with the foundation of an abbey dedicated to Saint Peter in 678 .


Gloucester’s historic cathedral cloisters were

transformed into the corridors of Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the films of JK Rowling’s first two books – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Clara's first nights at Hogwarts seemed to be defined by the constant downpour that raged outside the castle walls. Was this, perhaps, a foreshadowing as to just how hard her fifth year at the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry were going to be? Only time would tell...

The Great Hall dining room at Christ Church, Oxford University.


Note: Time for a re-do of this shot. The chromatic aberration and noise will be much better then, and the new version will view full-screen.


During the English Civil War (1642 - 1651) Oxford became the Royalist capital of England and the Great Hall was the seat of the government of Charles I.


Likely only of interest to Harry Potter fans, this is the movie setting for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry's dining room scenes.


(No tripods were allowed here so I shot 5 exposures on Continuous High at ISO 400 with the camera held tightly against the back of a chair. HDR processing was done in Photomatix Pro)

IL nuovo SET . . . "Snow in R O M E" . . . raccoglie molti scatti di questi giorni...



"The forest hides many secrets."


The Forbidden Forest, also known as Dark Forest borders the edges of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry grounds.


The forest is a very old place that holds many secrets and houses many creatures, some dark and Dangerous, others friendly. The trees in the forest are considered ancient, they are dense and rough looking from years of exposure to the elements.


As the forest's name suggests, it is strictly off limits to students — except in the case of detention, or Care of Magical Creatures lessons that occasionally take place there. Of course, with the various dangerous creatures living in the Forest, few students would even want to venture into it. Black flowers are known to grow in the forest.

transformed into the corridors of Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the films of JK Rowling’s first two books – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

For some reason, I've never been inside any of the Universal Orlando parks after dark. I typically bail out around dinner time so I've never had the opportunity to see things at night. Last night Cory Disbrow and I spent some time shooting around Wizarding World. We only had a few minutes after the official closing as this area of the park emptied but it was fun to get out and shoot something different.


Some pretty impressive work with this sand castle. Yes that is a copy of Hogwarts and several of the major characters.

Welcome to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This version of Hogwarts is made of about 400,000 bricks and took 12 months to build. It is designed to be architecturally accurate and completely playable. It breaks into sections that pack into 40 large flat boxes or shelves.

I have never even seen Harry Potter or read the books, but somehow just being alive on planet earth, I know a decent amount about the story. And when I walked into this library on the University of Washington campus, I just immediately assumed I was in Hogwarts. I found out that it is actually called Suzzallo Library and whether there is any connection to Harry Potter, I doubt it. But it was still a very impressive room, and only one room in a very impressive library. Not sure what it is about Seattle and libraries, but they know how to do them nice up there.

Majestic Durham Cathedral Night shot Alanpt2016:copyright:

Built between 1093 and 1490, Durham Cathedral, with the exception of the upper parts of its towers, the eastern extension known as the Chapel of Nine Altars, and the large west window of 1341, is entirely Norman and is regarded by Alec Clifton-Taylor as "the incomparable masterpiece of Romanesque architecture". The interior is “overwhelmingly impressive”.The western Lady Chapel known as the Galilee Chapel is a unique Norman building different in style to the cathedral itself. The view of the cathedral from the south west is particularly famous because of its “incomparable setting” on a steep promontory above the River Wear.

Durham Cathedral has been featured in the Harry Potter films as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where it had a spire digitally added onto the top of the famous towers.

This is the courtyard of Alnwick Castle (aka Hogwarts ;-)) in Northumberland, England.


Although there were many people visiting the castle that day nobody was in the courtyard when I took this picture. Now that's how I like it; a castle all to myself ;-)

Looks like the owls are returning to the owlery. :)

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a fictional setting in J. K. Rowling's best-selling Harry Potter series. It is a school of magic for witches and wizards between the ages of eleven and seventeen living in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Six of the seven books in the Harry Potter series are largely set at the school, with each book lasting the equivalent of one school year.

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."

(Helen Keller - American author and political activist, 1880–968)


This is one of the doors of the main building of the Sampurnanand Sanskrit University in Varanasi (Benaras).

The architecture of this place is an amazing blend of Western Gothic style with Sanskrit elements.

There are doors everywhere, most of them are closed but when one opens it is always a moment of happiness as it is like stepping in a daydream with an extraordinary set lost in time.

Somehow it looks Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and you wouldn’t be surprised to see Harry Potter in one of those classrooms...

Below is an excerpt from my travel blog. Cheers.


I've recently been reading the Harry Potter Series and watching the movies after the book. I must admit the first couple of Harry Potter movies were a bit too colorful and child-like for me, however, the last few have captured my artistic interest. I'm told they brought on a new director, whose approach becomes much darker and more well suited for adults. Most of the movie takes place at Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, which by the looks of it takes place north of London, most likely Scotland. This photo, with its moody lighting and barren landscape of Scotland reminds me of a few scenes from Harry Potter.


I've signed up and have been impressed by 500px. I'm still a fan of Flickr, but increasingly frustrated with Flickr's slow reaction to new services that take advantage of new technologies available to photographers. You can check out 500px here.

Not really of course, this is Alnwick Castle in Northumberland. It does feature as Hogwarts in the first 2 Harry Potter movies (both the interior as well as the exterior).


Great castle to visit, but you have to like kids, as they all visit because of the Harry Potter series. Most fascinating question that apparently has been asked by one of the visitors: "What was here before the Harry Potter movies..?"

Me (with the help from my friend Amy).

Here it is! After 2 and half year in the making, my Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry!

It's also my biggest project so far with well over 13000 parts, it also features a full interior!


As you can see my stream is full with plain white pictures, that is because this is also my entry into CCCXI! For those of you who do not know you are only allowed to enter three pictures that is 800x600 big. So when the contest is done I will upload detailed shots of the whole castle on both the exterior and interior! So keep and eye out for that!

I will also post a video on my Youtube channle shortly so look forward for that!


btw I'm very sorry for the very bad picture, but I couldn't do better with my iPhone... :-(


I also want to say happy new year to everyone!

Hogsmeade Village, or simply Hogsmeade is the only settlement in Britain inhabited solely by magical beings, and is located to the northwest of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was founded by medieval wizard Hengist of Woodcroft who fled to Scotland to escape Muggle persecution of wizards in Northumberland. Much of Hogsmeade's architecture reflects its medieval origin; the village is known for its leaning medieval houses the most famous of which being the Three Broomsticks, an ancient inn built on the site of Woodcroft's home, and the backdrop for such dramatic wizarding events as the 1612 rebellion of Britain's goblins (the upper rooms of the inn served as the headquarters for the Ministry of Magic in its attempts to put down the insurrection in the Highlands). Hogsmeade primarily consists of a single thoroughfare, called High Street, on which most shops and other magical venues reside; however, unnamed alleyways branching off from the main road are also home to such historic places as the Hogs Head Inn and Madame Puddifoot's Teashop

So, is it some what ironic that Hogsmeade is overrun by "muggles" on a daily basis? As for the image, it's an HDR created from a single RAW file. The skies were also playing nice, and this brief period of heavy cloud cover made the snow covered village look a bit more convincing.

The Glenfinnan Monument on the shores of Loch Shiel.


The Glenfinnan Monument was erected in 1815 to mark the place where Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) raised his standard, at the beginning of the 1745 Jacobite Rising. One of my relatives, John Gordon of Glenbuchat, was reputedly present at the event.


Loch Shiel was used as The Black Lake at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Harry Potter movies.

An Ordinary Wizarding Level (often abbreviated O.W.L.) is a subject-specific test taken during Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry students' fifth year, administrated by the Wizarding Examinations Authority. The score made by a student on a particular O.W.L. determines whether or not he or she will be allowed to continue taking that subject in subsequent school years.

Also "Owls are magical creatures most often used for delivering post and parcels in the wizarding world. ...

You're sailing softly through the sun

In a broken stone age dawn

You fly so high


I get a strange magic

Oh, what a strange magic

Oh, it's a strange magic


Got a strange magic

Got a strange magic

You're walking meadows in my mind

Making waves across my time
