Post a Landscape/Cityscape Pic

I really like the Post a Pic thread but it seems to ping pong between pictures of people and pictures of places (plus plain daft pictures). [Which, of course, might be why it works so well]

Thought I'd try out a separate one for 'places' - own pictures, nice pictures from the net, paintings, whatever. Inevitably there will be people in many of the places (as there are places behind people).

Here's one I took at Avebury, Wiltshire last weekend just playing with the IPhone panoramic function. No skill involved at all - the camera did it all:

Never been able to get so much of it in before.

Cool idea. Because I'd rather see pictures of people. :)

Sheep and hills.

These are two of my favourite things. Not in a Biblical sense. They can safely graze.

The Wiltshire (and surrounding chalklands) always make me think of the female body. All those curves and folds. A landscape for the voyeur!

ATL.png

Atlanta skyline at dusk with Centennial Olympic Park in the foreground.

I work in the glass-walled building facing/bordering the park (to the right of the concert stage).

Bay Village, Ohio. . . park bench looking out at Lake Erie. Lucinda and I sit on these benches and watch the sunset on occasion.

Gosh. Not what I think of when I hear the word Atlanta,

Here's a very different landscape:

Casper David Friedrich - Hills and Ploughed Field near Dresden. 1824

My favourite painter. First came across him on Penguin book covers; then was knocked out by his paintings in the gallery in Berlin c. 1978.

Sunday morning in August in the Mississippi Delta, off New Africa Road south of Clarksdale. I took this picture with a cheap camera, which did have a panorama mode, around 1995 or so.

Bev, thanks for the Avebury picture. I cherish the afternoon I spent there around 20 years ago.

Avebury and Clarksdale. Both mythical landscapes.

That make's sense. In our Alice in Wonderland world 'one nation', 'blue collar' and 'working people' also seem to have changed their meaning.

That would, of course, be the 'aspirational' Humpty Dumpty?

Aspiring to be put back together again.........

I took this photo of vocalist Kenny Washington from the "lovely" Green Room of Dizzy's Club Coca Cola looking out across Central Park and the East Side skyline in NYC a few years ago, with a crappy little camera.

I always liked Klimt's landscapes.

A bit different to the gold encrusted babes he's mainly known for.
