I’d taken this some time late last year, right behind the school. The wire lined the entire compound, but this particular part of the fence separated us from the untamed green land some miles beyond. This section was shaded by a dwarf coconut tree, the one I’d like to stand under those hot days and it was on one such sweltering morning when I noticed these vines twisting their way around the length of the wire and the barbs.

La Plume Noire Photography: Buckingham Palace

Now here’s a stunning photo of Buckingham Palace with the Queen’s eternally frozen Guards standing watch (of course except for the occasional trips to the loo … I mean they have to go at some point, right?).

The contrast is stunning and smooth. It’s a beautiful building, design and all.

I’ve got a few more installments coming up so come back again soon, okay? In the meantime, you can give Kirsty a visit and check out all of her galleries that are sure to make you itch to pick up a camera and click away!

Have a good weekend!

Cheers 😀
