shell

A speedy bout of baking, brownies in a hurry, but taking just a moment to snap these splintered shells.

pavilion

On our trip to Brussels earlier this year, we visited the Atomium.  It was built as one of the pavilions for the World Exhibition which took place in 1958, which makes it seem incredibly ahead of its time (and not exactly what comes to mind when I think of the word pavilion!). You can see the programme from the event here which gives some of the fascinating history around the structure, and the exhibition. I loved how the vapour trails in the sky seemed to be echoing the angles of the building.

homeward bound

Travelling home after a long day working away. Something soothing about the symmetry of the tracks, lines running in parallel yet heading in opposite directions.

Hello, and thank you to Ellie-Dee for inviting me to join this beautiful site.

I thought I’d go for a simple start, and share a cup of coffee with you, while we get acquainted.

I’m Katie, and you can usually find me over at my blog. I’m very much an amateur and most of my shots will be trusty phone snaps, though we did buy a new camera this year that I am determined to use more regularly.

Look forward to sharing this site with you, and seeing some wonderful images too.
