Looking down and black and white

Okay, I admit I am useless. Can never do what I plan on doing. 

Yesterday’s photo a day April was “Looking Down” which left me with a few decisions to make. Here are my choices of looking down photos:

Taken back in 2013, this photo is one I took of looking down off the Empire State Building. When I went on a school trip to New York, Phillidelphia, and Washington D.C. we went to the top of the Empire State Builfing on one of the nights. Now, I’m not great with heights. It’s not the fact that I’m up high, it’s the fear of falling the distance off! So to get this picture was actually quite an achievement for me. I think this is of the road outside Macey’s. While we were up and looking down, someone noticed multiple fire engines pulling up outside the shop, not something we expected to see. 

To another holiday, this was taken on our way to the top of Ibiza Town. During our day on the beach in Santa Eulalia, we noticed a cruise ship that had a helicopter taking off and landing on it. This was the afore mentioned ship – it was “parked” (this isn’t right but I can’t think of the word I mean, sorry) in Ibiza Town.
Black and White

Now for today’s post! Better do it while I remember.

Last year, Mary and I went with a couple of other friends to Edinburgh Zoo. The highlight of my day was the Penguin Parade. Look how close I was to a penguin! They would be my favourite non-pet animal/bird. The nice thing about the Penguin Parade is the Penguins aren’t forced to parade. At the start of the parade, the gates to their enclosure are opened and the Penguins are free to stay if they wish. Considering the main reason I went to the zoo was to see the parade, I was so happy that a few of them decided to be curious. If ever you’re in Scotland and looking for something to do, I would seriously recommend going to the zoo simply to witness this.


A photo I took of the Capitol Building in Washington DC – it was a glorious day outside and I got this picture while we waited for the teachers to catch up with us. With my current addiction to The West Wing, I am very proud of the fact I actually got to go to America.

  1. Thanks! It’s actually been a great relief from revision during the exam period! Aw I’m sure you’d be good, all you need is a phone with a camera and the occasional filter! 🙂 haha yes the penguin by far is my greatest achievement – I hadn’t realised how small they are!
