Lens Artists Photo Challenge # 82: Capital

I have a Number of images of capital cities, some capital letters, and I had hoped for a  capital or two atop a column….but I couldn’t find the image I wanted

First up, a couple of images from Spain, Madrid

View across the lake in the Park Retiro

Almudena Cathedral, Madrid1

An image from Prague:

On Charles Bridge

And I had to have at least one image from London, so here we are looking down on the city with the iconic red double decker bus:

And a mix of old and new, with St Paul’s cathedral and the modern skyline of tall, glass buildings:


And now for some capitals from a Capital- the Neon museum in Warsaw:

Great textures!

  1. Well, you did rather well 🙂 🙂 Madrid and Prague are both still on my list and those are nice shots of my old capital city.

  2. Capital letters. That’s thinking outside the square Sue

  3. You got me thinking about the capitals I have visited, Sue, other than London of course.
    Edinburgh,
    Cardiff.
    Paris.
    Brussels.
    Moscow.
    Tashkent. (Uzbekistan at the time)
    Almaty. (Kazakhstan, at the time)
    Dushanbe. (Tajikistan at the time)
    Ulan Bator.
    Kiev.
    Rome.
    Singapore.
    Amsterdam. (It’s the official capital, though the seat of government is in The Hague)
    Athens.
    Berlin. (When it was the DDR)
    Nairobi.
    Prague.
    Tunis.
    But I have never been to Madrid, or Warsaw.
    Nice photos. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  7. Great photos, as always -Sue … all 4 capitals … big favourites of mine. Madrid … I want to visit out of season next time … to be able to see it from the inside too. Far too long queues when I was there. Thanks for your entry.

    A great overlook of London with the Shard and Gherkin etc .. looking westwards I guess ?
