Her Majesty The Queen arrives at the Senate House, University of Cambridge. Amazing lady. The day before she visited Cambridge she was delivering the Queen's Speech in the pomp and glory of the State Opening of Parliament. Here she was in the city for the University's 800th Anniversary celebrations smiling and meeting people. She's a gem: a rare 83-year-old. Thank you, Ma'am, for making our day on November 19:-)

As I have walk throught London Streets many many times , I've always wanted to take the Tower Bridge from another side!! Sea is a thing that ALWAYS will take my eyes attention! I like this gorgeous built so much.. Look at Thames's river colours and the sky's... In some way you realize are the same... but when you look more closely to the picture... you realize they aren't the same at all...

My today's aim is to send a message through that... The colours difference beetween Sky-God and Earth-People...

Yesterday's attack in London was such an another tragic incident..Now the question is... What's the REAL meaning of the connection of the colours and the connection of Eart-People and Sky-God?

Gamlehaugen bathing in the sunset of a crisp winter day.


Gamlehaugen is a mansion in Bergen, Norway, and the residence of the Norwegian Royal Family in the city. Gamlehaugen has a history that goes as far back as the Middle Ages, and the list of previous owners includes many of the wealthiest men in Bergen. Today owned by the Norwegian state, the most recent private owner of the property was Christian Michelsen (1857-1925), a politician and shipping magnate who would later become the first Prime Minister of independent Norway after the dissolution of the union between Sweden and Norway in 1905.


In 1898, Christian Michelsen, a politician and shipping magnate, bought the property. He demolished the existing main building, a Swiss chalet style mansion, and ordered the construction of a new building in the style of a Scottish baronial style castle. The architect was Jens Zetlitz Monrad Kielland, who would later draw the Bergen Railway Station and the brick buildings at Bryggen. The construction was finished in 1900, and Michelsen with family moved in the next year. He delegated the task of converting the farmlands surrounding the building into a park to gardener Olav Moen, who designed it as an English garden-style park. Barring his years as Prime Minister of Norway from 1905 to 1907, Christian Michelsen lived at Gamlehaugen for the remainder of his life.


The park is open to the public whenever the royal family is not using the property.

The Drottningholm Palace is the private residence of the Swedish royal family. It is located in Drottningholm.

Apart from being the private residence of the Swedish royal family, the castle is a popular tourist attraction.

When you visit Palace Soestdijk, you are not allowed to take pictures inside. You have to put your bag and camera in a locker. Just before I had to do so, I secretly could take this one and only picture.

“Where there is much light, the shadow is deep”


// By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Sometimes is just a matter of luck, being in the right place at the right moment. Yesterday I took my sister to Aranjuez for a visit,a town I reccomend to everyone to see because is just beautiful. We got there and it was darn windy, lots of dust in the air and a sky changing mood every 5 minutes. Around 7 in the evning the sky turned like it was the end of it while the sun, low on the horizon managed to found its way through the clouds. That was it. No tripod, an average lens, composition just decent but the light did the whole work for me.

I edited the image in Lightroom to bring back colors, saturation and contrast from the DNG file

wishing for 2008, that all my flickr-friends will become as rich as the royals...

"Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my American friends; and friends who live in the USA...may your day 'sparkle' with of joy and shine with new hope!"


This is a 'detail' from Stephen's painting, 'Crown Jewels II' - one of two paintings of the historic Crown Jewels that he created in 2000; both works part of the series of 30 oil paintings that he was commissioned to paint that year for the Tower of London.


All the original paintings are housed within the Tower walls; but the entire series can be viewed every day by the public as it is permanently reproduced throughout the public walkway that leads from Tower Hill Station to the Tower.


The Crown Jewels are housed under top security in the Jewel House within the Tower of London - and are on permanent daily display to the public, who are able to view the Crown Jewels and Royal regalia from a moving conveyor belt platform.


The only way that Stephen B Whatley could have private access to the Crown Jewels - in order to make studies of the jewels and absorb their sensations - before the moving platform was switched on - was to request permission to be there before the public arrived. Therefore he was alotted an hour every morning for a week in which to make as many studies and notes as possible - from which his paintings were inspired.


For security he had to be locked in the Jewel House behind the massive safe door, watched by cameras - a story he was privileged and touched to be able to relate to Her Majesty The Queen, when he was presented to her at the Tower in 2004.


The detail of this painting features the Imperial State Crown (1937) which Queen Elizabeth II wore prior to her crowning; and always wears at the State Opening of Parliament each year. Partially shown is The Crown of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother (1937), worn at the coronation of King George VI, father of the present Queen.

I have always wanted to get this shot, the iconic London Underground tube train

disappearing into the tunnel. Hand held long exposure.


My mum had Miss A, Miss M looked after Zeus, Dibley and the

fish and I have just had the most amazing weekend in London with my hubby. I took lots of photos but this image seemed the most appropriate one to start off with :)

Amaliehaven, an oasis in the middle of the city, was designed by the Belgian architect Jean Delogne and opened in 1983 and comprises of four externally uniform (but internally different) palaces encircling an octagonal courtyard, in the middle of which has been erected an equestrian statue of Frederik V – the founder of the Amalienborg Palace complex and the Frederiksstad.

"Glimpsed before on my site, here is the first full picture of one of my most cherished memories and works of art : commissioned in 1999 by The Royal Collection, I painted this view of Buckingham Palace, London residence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, from the edge of Green Park, east of the Palace.


The large oil painting, uniquely created on a square canvas ( at the request of the Palace, to accommodate the subsequent plans of advertisement) was reproduced on London Underground advertisements promoting the Summer Opening of the State Apartments in 1999 & 2000.


Painted from early in the morning through to the evening, I managed to capture crowds gathering around the railings and the parading soldiers, taking part in the daily Changing The Guard Ceremony, on the Palace forecourt.


The original painting now hangs inside Buckingham Palace."


In 2000 Stephen B Whatley was commissioned to undertake his most major Royal commission: 30 paintings interpreting vividly the history of Her Majesty's Tower of London. The entire series of paintings were reproduced on steel vitreous enamel panels in 2001 to form a permanent public walkway to the Tower from Tower Hill Station.
