Picture of the day: A man in the archway

I have been walking around Oslo downtown today, and I tried to find some shots, and after a while,  I went back to the archway I used yesterday, and I found a little scene that I think kind of works.


The gateway to the Jimena castle

A lot of work has been completed up at the castle, and the gateway has been cleaned and some beautiful Moorish tiles have been exposed. To the right is an upsidedown tile with Latin writing on it (so my Latin reading man tells me anyway) I scrambled up to a ledge just by the entrance to draw this, which was great as I was up and out of the way of all the tourists (most of whom didn’t look up my way) I did get a few cheery waves though :-) I made sure no one was passing as I knew coming down would be harder….I got a bit of a numb bum sitting up there for about an hour and a half and couldn’t quite finish it but I rather like the unfinished effect :-) 34 more words


Reflection - Week Two

Week two’s over and the amount of work didn’t die down one bit. Not that I was expecting it to, mind. I think it’s been good that we’ve been thrown right into the hard work (although I’m fairly certain things are only going to get harder), it saves us being shocked by the amount of work if we were allowed to breeze through the first few weeks. 609 more words
