Lens-artist’s photo challenge – #13 Look up

This week, Patti has asked us to look up. I have decided on a theme, and my images for this post are all from Romania.

On a trip to Romania some years ago, I looked up and spotted a number of storks in the sky

Storks in flight, Romania

…and here was a moment when I looked up and saw a mother stork and her brood:

And now we move to manmade things….

I spotted these ‘eyes’ in the rooves of Sibiu:

Here’s the castle of Rasnov on the hillside above me in Transylvania:

and here here are a figure and a shadow in the archway above me in Sighisoara


Sinister?

  1. Very intriguing shots, Sue. I’ve never seen storks up close. They look huge. And the “eyes” in the roof are a bit eerie, aren’t they?

  2. Good choice for nailing the theme, Sue. I have seen storks in Marrakesh, roosting on the Medina Gate.
    They were very big! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Many thanks, Pete! This was an easy one for me, Pete….I seem to have spent a lot of time looking up in the past! Not so much now….I have to look down to see where I’m going!!

  3. Great idea Sue! Especially liked the shot with the shadow – very foreboding. We have wood storks here. They are beautiful in flight but not so much on the ground 🙂

  4. The variety is nice and that is some nest! Oh and the eyes are just clever – I bet it only brings a little bit of light in (better than none up in that area) and do you know why they make the windows slitted like that?

  5. Great shots of storks and buildings of Romania, Sue, a country where even roofs have eyes!

  6. We were so intrigued by the storks’ nests in Romania. I learned to look up more. Wish I could have seen roof eyes, too!

  7. I’ve never seen storks, so enjoyed those pics. The eyes and buildings are fantastic too.

  8. The last one, the figure and shadow, I don’t get it? what’s it a shadow of?

  9. Great Look ups, Sue! In fact we had 3 storks here this summer, just some hundred meters from where I live. I was rather shocked, in fact. They usually live further south in Skane. Lovely animals.

  10. Being a brainbird I enjoy your first photo the most

  11. Very nice captures these are, Sue 🙂
