Yet another jigsaw adventure, this time to the Writer’s Museum in Edinburgh, Scotland:
Strange, quirky buildings like this one are like a cattle prod to my imagination. I start wondering who built the building, in that spot to that style. And why. Was the quirkiness deliberate, or an accident dictated by the location?
And then, of course, I start day dreaming about the inside and how the original inhabitants may have lived…
Oddly enough the one thing I’m not curious about is the building’s current purpose. I mean, really…a museum for writers? What would it contain? Cabinets full of quills, pens and ink? Illegible, hand-written first drafts?
Anyway, another beautiful building thanks to my jigsaw hobby. Now if only I were rich enough to visit it in the flesh. I could quite see myself as a globe-trotting old lady, maybe with my own Lear jet…
Every girl should have a little black number in the garage. 😉
I’ve been working in Corel all morning and decided to take a break by doing a jigsaw puzzle [on jigsawplanet.com]. The pic above is the the finished puzzle.
That glorious, circular stair captivated me so much, I went looking for more information. The photo was taken by a New York photographer/travel writer by the name of Vivienne Gucwa. Click the link to see her website – NY Through the Lens. It’s well worth a visit. I definitely enjoyed it. 😀
As for the actual staircase, it’s somewhere in the Museum of Gustav Moreau in Paris. This is a view down through the spiral:
Makes me want to hop on a plane and go see it for myself. -sigh-
And here’s the link to the Flickr account on which I found the pic.
Okay, back to work. I hope you’re all having a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.
After three, full-on days of work, weeding, editing, tweeting, visits to the dentist and just life in general, I needed a pick-me-up. And this did it for me. 🙂
The image comes from Jigsaw Planet, and it was uploaded by Lilhrywoman. Don’t they all look as if they’re saying ‘cheese!’? I did the jigsaw of the image so I could see it better. So glad I did. 😀
And for a bit more joy, here’s a track from Two Steps From Hell’s soundtrack album Colin Frake. The track is called Talia’s Theme:
Are you cheered? I am. 😀
