Urban Architecture in Cardiff

I might be slightly biased, but I think that Cardiff is one of the most wonderful cities in the World. Having had the good fortune to travel extensively over the past 25 years, I have seen and experienced many cities. Still, Cardiff comes out on top. The capital of Wales is extremely cosmopolitan and the additional of buildings such as John Lewis are architectural wonders and have brought a new dimension to the city. Sitting next to the City Library at the end of the St David’s 2 shopping precinct, the building has sharp tight angled corners with smoked windows from which tired shoppers gaze as they drink their afternoon tea in the John Lewis cafĂ©. And I should know as I’ve sat there often.

Inspired Architecture from Nature

For the past month or so I have watched as the pot of lilies in our back garden have gradually awoken from their winter’s hibernation. The long stems have stretched upwards, as if trying to push their gradually opening buds up into the sky. Over the past few days, those buds have blossomed and now I am looking at some of the most beautiful architecture that Mother Nature has ever designed. The sweet curves of the white leaves, curl around the bright yellow heart. As the sunlight filters through the wispy thin petal, you can see the slightly darker veins. Then, on the tip of the flower is a little curling twist that just adds yet another dimension to this beautiful plant. I could sit and gaze at them for hours.

There are more photographs of our gorgeous lilies on my website – http://www.paulfearsphoto.co.uk/index.php?cat=photographs&id=16&album=Flowers-and-Trees. Any of the photographs shown can be purchased as a print, canvas or framed photograph and please contact us on paul@paulfearsphoto.co.uk if this is of interest.
