Perhaps because I’m uncommonly nearsighted, I’ve always been fascinated with shapes and colors and designs, often found in quite ordinary things.
So as well as the sorts of things that usually appear in photographs, I have been known to confound my companions by taking pictures of interesting manhole covers in Estonia.
I hope that by sharing these views, both large and small, with you, you may find something intriguing to contemplate.

Greenbelt Tree Appeel
Sometimes it’s all about the bark.
Armenia Neptune Rising
This is one of the levels in the Cascades, an art museum in Yerevan, where the outside is as arresting as the inside.
Armenia Old and New
The color of the stonework in this museum in Yerevan shows why it is sometimes called “The Pink City”
Interesting metal work, plus plants with the will to grow in the least encouraging places.
It gets dark early in the day in Tallinn, so it’s good to have a sign that’s striking day or night.
Estonia the Path Beneath Our Feet

Armenia Somebody’s Home
You know you are in Armenia when you see a doorway with pomegranate themed metalwork.
Armenia Framed and Reframed
The air is so clear, here, you can see the capital city, Yerevan, through these ruins.
Greenbelt Hidden Signs?
You see these huge pipes a little distance from Greenbelt Lake. I wonder what they’re for?
Hmm, perchance a crocodile hides its shape here?
DC Let There be Lighting
Someone put a lot of work into making these lights worthy of lighting a museum building.
Museum entrance Yerevan.
Reflecting on more than one view …
Little angels everywhere … even just down the street.
I was surprised to see how much care went into the design of quite ordinary doors and doorways.
